The soap's Executive Producer Jon Sen said: “We’re delighted to have Maddy back and I can’t wait for audiences to see what’s in store for Nancy.

Why did Nancy leave EastEnders?

Nancy left Albert Square in 2016 to settle down and start married life with her husband Tamwar in New Zealand.

Nancy first arrived in Walford with the Carters in 2014 and became involved in the Square’s drama as her family took over the reigns of The Queen Vic. 

Her unlikely romance with Tamwar was initially strained, with the couple splitting up multiple times thanks to intimacy issues and Nancy suffering epileptic seizures due to the stress.

Things worsened for Nancy when Mick kicked her out after Ollie was caught in the crossfire of her row with Lee. 

The Carters were left fearing fearing that Ollie had suffered brain damage after Nancy accidentally knocked him out of his pram. 

In 2019, Mick and Linda got a call informing them that Nancy and Tanwar had got engaged in Australia and were planning on settling down in New Zealand.
