BBC One viewers will be stunned to see a music legend make their appearance next week in EastEnders

Rocky Cotton is determined to go big for Kathy Beale’s birthday

But do you recognise the music icon invited to celebrate?

Rocky Cotton (portrayed by Brian Conley) is adamant on making Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylorth) feel special for her birthday as she makes big plans to celebrate.

Next week on BBC One, the Prince Albert owner excitedly plans a Eurovision-themed birthday bash and Rocky has agreed to take part in a special performance.

He’s also managed to get help from Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy), who is particularly close to Kathy.

But when she pulls out of the act he’s planning to do for Kathy’s party, Rocky is sent into a panic.

He desperately turns to Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) and asks her to step in.

However, he decides to take things a step further in an attempt to assure a pleasant show for Kathy and he makes a frantic phone call to an old contact.

Jean finally agrees to take to the stage in the nick of time but she’s stopped in her tracks when Rocky’s mystery guest also shows up – and it’s Cheryl Baker from Bucks Fizz!

Eurovision fans may remember that Bucks Fizz are one of the UK’s five winners of the singing contest to date.

The pop group achieved success in the 1980s most notably through their victory at the 1981 Eurovision Song Contest with their song Making Your Mind Up.

Cheryl Baker has since grown out of the pop group, while she still performs with fellow members Jay Aston, Mike Nolan under The Fizz and has done so since 2016.

How will Kathy react to her arrival in the Square?

EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
