In January, Kacey revealed that she was temporarily giving up acting after her discovering that her 11-year-old son Elwood was on the autistic spectrum aged six.

She played downtrodden Little Mo in the BBC One soap between 2000 and 2006.

Mo famously attacked her husband with an iron – facing prison for attempted murder before being released without charge.

Trevor died in a fire in 2002, with Mo going on to briefly find love with Billy Mitchell.

Kacey quit the show in 2006 to pursue other projects, and previously ruled out returning to Walford – even though much of her onscreen family have returned to the square in recent months.
