Deborah Shelton - who played JR's mistress Mandy Winger on the original Dallas between 1984 and 1987 - will make a brief appearance in the funeral episode, TV Guide reports.

Cathy Podewell - who played JR's second wife Cally Ewing from 1988 to 1991 - will also feature, alongside previously confirmed returnees Ted Shackelford (Gary Ewing), Steve Kanaly (Ray Krebbs) and Charlene Tilton (Lucy Ewing).

Victoria Principal is also rumoured to be in talks to reprise her role as Pam Ewing - the 63-year-old last appeared on Dallas in 1987 and has not acted since 2001.
