FORMER EastEnders star Annette Badland has hinted her character Aunt Babe is playing a part in Max Branning and James Willmott-Brown’s dastardly plot to bring down the Carter family.

Retweeting an article documenting Mick and Linda’s plight, Annette cryptically wrote: “Never cross #Aunt Babe!”

There’s no love lost between Babe and the Carters after she stitched up Mick to the police when she was rumbled serving booze in The Queen Vic outside of operating hours.

She put the blame firmly at the landlord’s door despite him being unaware of what was happening.

The Albert Square villain left the soap on February 9, but could she be in line for a sensational return following Annette’s post?

Just days after Babe was unceremoniously booted out of the pub, Annette hinted she could be back.

On the possibility of reappearing in the soap, she told the Metro: “A thousand times, yes! The door is open, she is vengeful, she curses them, says she’ll be back – and I think she will.”

She also spoke about whether she thought her character was as evil as she seemed and had meant to kill Sylvie.

Annette revealed: “It would have been fate – she didn’t push her in. But if the worst had happened, I think Babe would have been enormously relieved – that burden all of her life would have been lifted and she could have become that mother that she has always wanted to be.”

She added: “She enticed her to do something and then walked away from it – she would not have actually killed her. It’s interesting, she left it to the Gods to settle.”

The blackmailing cook had tried to kill her elderly sister by leaving her to drown on in a remote canal in a storm.

But when Sylvie survived and Babe was caught, she turned on her entire family, exposing their own misdeeds to all of Walford in the pub.

Calling out Lee for being behind the brutal robbery that left his brother Johnny beaten and their young brother Ollie in serious danger, she sealed her fate when she told Sylvie that she should have drowned – and unleashed venom on Mick’s wife Linda.

Babe spat insults at everyone from Mick to Lee before cursing her family.

“I curse you, I curse the lot of you, I hope you lose everything and your precious pub. I curse you,” she said as she was left outside alone.

Following his recent return to the soap, James’s son Luke is compiling a list of expensive problems with the Vic which will prove too costly for the Carters to repair, forcing them out.
