CBAEFEA6-F42E-DE53-0AFCCBEB892E22D7 Stephanie Beacham has hinted she wants to combine royal aspirations with acting as the new matriarch of Eastenders.

In a conversation with the housemates, the Dynasty actress suggested that she would like the role of the Queen Vic landlady, according to PA.

She said: “Barbara Windsor’s leaving so I think they might be looking for someone else with fluffy hair to fill her shoes.” Somehow we can’t imagine her shouting ‘Gerrout of my pub!’ but who knows what voice training and a blonde wig can do…

Stephanie guest starred in Coronation Street as Martha Fraser, a love interest for Ken Barlow, for four months last year.

Of her Corrie stint, the Bad Girls star commented: “I turned down being Ken Barlow’s love interest and nearly 50 years later I turn up on a canal boat as Ken Barlow’s love interest.”

Guess this shows anything can happen…
