Struggling to remember just how Allen left the soap?, we’ve got a quick run-down.

Daughter of the menacing Johnny Allen who’s gangster ways ended him in prison and dying later of a heart attack left the soap after Stacey Slater’s (Ruby’s best friend) big brother, Sean seduced her when he realised she stood to inherit her father’s fortune, once she came to the conclusion he was only after the money a blazing row erupted with Sean blowing the ashes of her dead Dad in her face. With no friends, not even Stacey, Ruby leaves the square.

So what can we expect when her character arrives back to Walford? Ruby left as a teen and will arrive back as a woman and we’re sure many hidden secrets will start to emerge. Set to be one of this years biggest story-lines could we see the actress as rival to business women Mel Owen or perhaps the take-down of hard-man Phil Mitchel – well she does have her Dads fortune to help out.

As for Christmas, will her feet be tucked under Stacey’s table or could it be she has other plans for the Fowler family, either way that household CANNOT hold anymore.

We can’t wait for Christmas TV!
