Annette Badland promises Aunt Babe WILL return with a vengeance
Viewers last saw the soap villain standing outside the pub in the rain with her packed bags at her feet and cursing the Carter family.
While many were thrilled to see the back of Aunt Babe, the soap star has hinted that she won't stay away from Albert Square for long and will want revenge.
Speaking about whether she'd like to reprise her role, the actress insisted: "Oh, yes, yes, yes! A thousand times yes! The door is open, she is vengeful, she curses them, says she'll be back – and I think she will."
Annette went on to add that she will continue to tune into the BBC soap to see if Aunt Babe's curse affects the Carter family.
