The Daily Mail reports that Dot is reunited with granddaughter Abi (Lorna Fitzgerald) in the scenes, which take place away from Albert Square.

The paper says the scenes appear to have been filmed at a school, leading to speculation that Dot is working or volunteering there.

"Dot is one of EastEnders' best loved characters and Albert Square hasn't been the same without her," said executive producer Lorraine Newman.
