Currently airing on BBC Two, EastEnders will return to BBC One after the Olympics in an explosive week featuring seven episodes.
On August 13, Sharon returns to Albert Square in desperate need of Phil Mitchell's help. However, when Phil attempts to rescue Sharon from her nightmare, he is unaware that his is only just beginning, as Shirley Carter uncovers the truth about Heather Trott's death.
Executive Producer Lorraine Newman said "An exciting week packed full of dramatic twists and turns lies ahead for the audience and the justice they have been desperately waiting for has finally arrived."
Speaking of EastEnders' return to BBC One, Controller Danny Cohen added "Following the Olympics on BBC One, viewers can look forward to more TV gold on the channel as EastEnders returns home for seven explosive episodes in one week and Sharon's dramatic return to the Square. Not to be missed!"
Speaking of her return earlier this year, Dean commented: "I am really looking forward to being part of the EastEnders team again, as it has always been very close to my heart. I cannot wait to work with my old colleagues and see what is in store for Sharon."
EastEnders returns to BBC One with Shirley discovering the truth about Heather Trott's murder and Sharon Watts's return in August.
