  Zoe comes back to EastEnders
Updated 29 September 2002, 12.08
Dr Trueman (L) and Zoe
Actress Michelle Ryan who playes Zoe Slater in EastEnders is coming back to the soap.

The 18-year-old's been off the show for four months after she reportedly became ill with exhaustion.

She said acting in emotional scenes had drained her.

Zoe had been about to marry the Square's doctor, Anthony Trueman.

Love on the rocks

Michelle Ryan (L) and Jessie Wallace who plays Kat Slater
But the wedding storyline was rewritten with Zoe leaving Anthony and running away to Tenerife.

In a dramatic twist she'd also discovered Kat was her mother - having grown up thinking she was her sister.

And in real life Michelle's romance with Hollyoaks hearthrob Gary Lucy hit the rocks.

Ryan said she was pleased to be returning to Albert Square.

She'll start filming again in October.
