The 85-year-old actress, who will be taking a six-month break from Albert Square, recently hinted that she may not return to her role as Walford stalwart Dot Branning.
However, her agents AIM released a statement today saying: "June Brown is taking a break from EastEnders as she has done before.
"She will be completing her autobiography, and intends to return to EastEnders in the not-too-distant future."
Her alter ego Dot will make her temporary exit later this week following her struggle to move on from the death of Heather Trott.
A string of fellow EastEnders cast members, including Charlie Brooks (Janine), Jo Joyner (Tanya) and Patsy Palmer (Bianca), have recently announced they will be taking hiatuses.
