For the many fans who expected Poppy Meadow’s return to be short lived, it can now be confirmed that she will be staying in Walford for the foreseeable future.
Actress Rachel Bright, who reprised her role as a nail artist this year to help with the preparations for Janine Butcher’s wedding, has now signed a long term deal with the soap.
In the upcoming weeks, the beautician will resume her employment at the local beauty salon, with producers setting up a romantic future for her.
In the meantime, in a linked move, Poppy’s sister Tansy will make a one-episode appearance for a brief guest spot. Actress Daisy Wood-Davis will be playing Tansy, although some eagle eyed viewers might remember her from her first appearance in January 2011, when she was introduced as the best friend of Jodie Gold (Kylie Babbington).
