In February, we announced that Margaret Tyzack would be joining the cast to take on the role of Lydia Simmonds, but due to a personal matter she's finished filming earlier than planned.

EastEnders' Executive Producer, Bryan Kirkwood adds: "In order to continue the current storyline we've taken the decision for Heather Chasen to take over the role of Lydia."

Heather's recent roles include Holby City, Doctors and Family Affairs and also the 2011 film Cat Run.

Welcome to Walford Heather! Let's hope she can control that scheming Janine as her grandma, Lydia. What do ya reckon?
