Returning EastEnders star Letitia Dean has admitted that she is apprehensive about appearing in HD.

Speaking to the latest Radio Times, Dean despaired: "I've got my special eye cream. I mean, HD is so cruel, isn't it? Who invented that? It must be a man."

Of going back to the Albert Square set after six years away, she admitted: "I still got the first-day-at-school nerves, when your stomach's flipping over and you feel sick."

However, she also revealed: "I'm having such a lovely time, even getting up at 5.30am isn't jarring yet."

The Sharon star, who signed for an initial 12 months, added that she "certainly" hopes to fulfil her contract.

An EastEnders producer recently stated that Dean's new deal took a year to be finalised.

Dean has said that she "eased back" into the role after "first day" nerves.
