Tears as Babs returns.
The 67-year-old, who plays landlady Peggy Mitchell, was forced to quit the BBC soap 18 months ago when she fell ill.
The former Carry On star was laid low with the energy-sapping Epstein-Barr virus. But she recovered enough to make a short return for Sam Mitchell's wedding to gangster Andy.
Barbara said: 'It was lovely seeing all the people I'd known for years.
'It was like being the new girl all over again. I didn't have to say anything on my first scene, I just had to shed a tear.'
Barbara was nursed through her illness by her husband Scott, 40.
She said: 'If it wasn't for Scott, I wouldn't be here now.'
