Sharon Watts endures an angry confrontation with her jilted groom as she makes her long awaited Walford comeback.



Former Eldorado and Footballers' Wives star Jesse Birdsall plays her dumped fiance John, in scenes of high drama to be screened over the coming weeks.



Sharon - played by Letitia Dean - is heading back to Albert Square after an absence of more than six years.



Viewers will see her seeking Phil Mitchell's help as she turns up on his doorstep almost hysterical next month when the BBC is to screen seven editions of the soap in a week.



Phil (Steve McFadden) tries to calm her as she explains she has walked out on her wedding day and needs Phil to help her get her son back.



When they attempt to return him, they have to face the wrath of John at the reception venue.



Over the weekend the BBC began screening trailers for Sharon's return showing a storm.
