Lisa Maxwell has admitted she is nervous about watching her guest appearance in EastEnders.
The actress and Loose Women panellist will appear in tomorrow night’s episode of the BBC One soap as Naomi, the girlfriend of returnee David Wicks (Michael French).
The pair turn up at the home of David’s daughter Bianca (Patsy Palmer) and former partner Carol Jackson (Lindsey Coulson) and it soon becomes clear they have been up to no good.

Maxwell told ITV’s Daybreak that sitting down to watch the episode as it transmits could prove a nerve-wracking experience.
I might even actually watch the repeat as opposed to be the first one. There’s something really nerve-wracking about watching it with the nation. It’s a big show, isn’t it? The reaction to just being in that one episode has been overwhelming. – Maxwell
Maxwell also reiterated previous comments she’d made to Radio Times about how much she enjoyed filming the episode alongside Michael French, Lindsey Coulson and Nitin Ganatra.
It couldn’t have been better. It was pretty much a four-hander, the episode. We had rehearsals, which apparently is unheard of at EastEnders, so it was a really lovely experience.
Well, she doesn’t die at the end. There’s always that. She could come back. She’s in love with David Wicks and they’ve been having an affair for quite some time, from what I gather, so there’s unfinished business there.
If the experience [of] working on EastEnders is anything like the one I had doing that episode, then in a heartbeat I’d go back.
Catch Lisa Maxwell in EastEnders tomorrow at 8.00pm on BBC One.
