EastEnders spoilers – Fans spot HUGE hint top character's secret sister is back; plus Coronation Street & Emmerdale news

EASTENDERS has dropped a hint that Rainie Cross' secret sister Ava Hartman will make a shock return to Albert Square.

Ava – played by Clare Perkins – is the eldest daughter of Cora Cross, and was last seen by fans of the soap back in 2012 alongside sister Tanya Branning.

Mother-of-one Ava was on a mission to figure out who her birth family was after she was given up for adoption when she was born.

But her cause found her at the centre of drama in the Square, as it was revealed that Cora, played by Ann Micthell, was her mother – making for a difficult reunion.

It all came to a head when Cora revealed she had to give up Ava as, back in the 60s it was difficult for a white woman to raise a black baby.

The mother-daughter duo worked hard to rebuild their relationship, with Ava eventually bringing her son Dexter Hartman, played by Khali Best, to Walford.

Ava and Cora came together to establish a happy extended family – until 2013 when the newcomer was offered a job in Newcastle and moved away.

    Sarah also opened up about struggling financially during her time on the show, insisting that soap actors are not paid as well as some might think.

    She said: "There's a huge misconception that people on TV shows earn huge amounts of money, it just isn't the case.

    "People talk about massive six-figure salaries but the reality is that if your character isn't in a big storyline for a while you can end up struggling some months."

    But it seems that Sarah is having the laugh laugh now it was revealed she made £500,000 in one week following the axing thanks to her steamy uploads.

    And unsurprisingly she was in the mood to celebrate.

    Posting a throwback of her on the beach, Sarah told her fans: "We’ve just booked our first family holiday abroad in over two years and I cannot wait to feel the sun on my back, the sand on my toes and the sea on my legs. And to spend some quality time with my little family."

    Earlier this month The Sun revealed that Sarah had been sacked from her £120k-a-year role as Mandy Richardson, a character she's played on and off since 1996, after she refused to quit OnlyFans.

    At the time she told us: "I’m disappointed it has come to this, after so many years. I’ve loved being on Hollyoaks and I will miss the amazing cast and crew very much. But I feel like I had to take a stand.

    “For me this is about having the right as a woman of 40 years old to decide what is right for me.

    “I love photoshoots and I’ve worked hard for my figure. I don’t make a secret of the fact that I get a big boost out of it, and I’m not apologetic for that."

    Sarah Jayne Dunn could be back on screens sooner rather than later following her sacking from Hollyoaks.

    The 40-year-old has been approached to make a documentary about being forced to choose between her job on the Channel 4 soap and uploading sexy pictures to OnlyFans, The Sun can reveal.

    A source said: "Since leaving the soap, Sarah has been offered a lot of work – and been approached by a lot of companies about making a documentary on the whole experience of leaving Hollyoaks and taking control of her own career by launching an OnlyFans account.

    "Nothing is confirmed and it's all early stages, but it's something to explore for Sarah."

    Who's the daddy? (continued)

    Her surname – Harris – previously sent viewers in a flurry as they linked her with former villain Pierce Harris, who was sent to prison in 2017.

    So when a mysterious man began following Chloe in a car, it was no wonder fans tried their best to catch a proper glimpse to confirm whether or not it was Pierce.

    In a bid to unmask him, viewers did their best to pause at the critical moment the car was in full view to try and get a look at the man.

    They took to Twitter to joke they were "on the floor" trying to get the best view of their screens in order to recognise the blurry face.

    "Who was that person following them in the car – and who is Chloe's dad?" one fan wrote to social media.

    Who's the daddy?

    Emmerdale fans are convinced they have worked out who Chloe's dad is after pausing the soap at a crucial moment.

    The teen's past has remained a mystery since she joined the ITV soap – with viewers trying their best to work out who she could be related to.

    Now, eagle-eyed fans think they have worked out who her dad is – having looked closely at their TV's while Chloe and Kerry were followed by a mysterious car.

    Viewers know that her "dangerous dad" has been in prison, and that Chloe was related to sister Gemma, who died three years ago.

    Theories have passed back and forth across social media, with audiences convinced that her father must be a character from the soap's past.

    Eastenders' Rose hot favourite for Strictly

    Eastenders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis is hot favourite to win Strictly after a part-silent performance heralded as the greatest in its history.

    Her spellbinding routine with Giovanni Pernice saw the music stop halfway through as the couple continued to dance.

    Viewers were reduced to tears as EastEnders star Rose, 26, the show’s first deaf contestant, gave them a “beautiful” insight into hearing loss.

    Giovanni, 31, yesterday posted a pic of the dance, adding: “A moment that will remain forever in my heart. You really are a role model.”

    At the end of their routine on Saturday night, the Italian told Rose he “loved her” before they received a near-perfect 39 out of 40.

    Rose beamed afterwards: “Being deaf, there’s nothing wrong — it’s such a joy to be deaf.”
