Dr Legg (Leonard Fenton) returned last year and broke the devastating news to his friend Dot Branning (June Brown) that he had terminal cancer.

EastEnders characters Lofty and Mary – played by Tom Watt and Linda Davidson – will return to Albert Square for the funeral.

This episode airs on Tuesday.
