There have been some new faces popping up in EastEnders recently, and in upcoming scenes the latest addition to the Atkins family is going to be introduced. 

It comes as the soap has released official spoiler pictures showing Chantelle Atkins (played by Jessica Plummer) in her first scene with father Mitch Baker (Rodger Griffiths).

They meet for the first time in the Queen Vic, much to the surprise of her father. 

The caption that accompanies the images reads: “After hearing Kim and Denise gloat about their great new stylist, Mitch is stunned to learn he will be going head-to-head with his daughter Chantelle.

“As recently announced, Chantelle will be joined by the rest of the Atkins family in the next few weeks.” 

According to the soap, “the Atkins family are set to cause a stir in Walford” with the hairdresser the matriach of the family. 

Husband Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) and children Mi and Mackenzie are also going to arrive within the next few weeks. 

Viewers will remember how Chantelle is the much talked about daughter of Karen Tayler and Mitch and her appearance is going to cause some friction amongst the fan-favourite Taylor clan. 

Elsewhere in the Square, viewers saw Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) make a surprise decision following her cancer diagnosis. 

After hiding out in a caravan park, Stacey Fowler (Lacey Turner) tracks her down and viewers saw her take her mother to the doctors. 

Jean was told she had stage three ovarian cancer, and chemotherapy treatment was recommended within a matter of weeks to help her chances of survival. 

Whilst Stacey made it clear that she intended to stick by Jean and take care of her during this difficult time, Jean had other ideas. 

During a conversation with Shirley Carter (Linda Henry), she asked her if she could move into the Queen Vic and for her to look after her instead. 

Jean explained: ”Shirley, you're a mum, so you'll understand. The only thing we want in the whole world is to protect our kids.

“What if they need protecting from us? Please Shirley, help me do right by [Stacey], even once?"

Whilst Shirley was initially taken aback by the request, she agreed. 

Breaking the news to her daughter, Stacey was confused and wondered if it was something she had done. 

Jean said: ”Don't ever say you're sorry. It's not your job to look after me, and it never should have been.

“There's other people who need you now, those beautiful little people in there now. If I stay, you'll get ill. You will. And they need you now.”

Whilst Stacey isn’t happy with the decision, there isn’t a lot she can do. But will Jean change her mind? 

EastEnders returns Monday at 8pm on BBC One.
