Cleaning Up viewers thrilled as they spot EastEnders' Gita Kapoor as Sheridan Smith's landlady

Actress Shobu Kapoor starred in the fifth episode of Sheridan Smith's new series – and her appearance didn't go unnoticed by viewers.

One said: "If you didn’t recognise Gita from #eastenders in #cleaningup are you even British?"

Another added: #CleaningUp Oh wow! It's @Shokap (Gita Kapoor from EastEnders). She looks very well!"

Someone else said: "Oooo it's Gita from EastEnders #cleaningup"

While another added: "Nice to see Gita again #cleaningup."

Shobu played Sheridan's landlord who had popped round to enquire about her tenancy.

She said: "I spoke to Dave a few days ago about renewing your tenancy agreement.

"He said you might not be able to stay."

Sheridan's character explains that's split with Dave and would indeed want to carry on living in the property.

But she's told she must now hand over a hefty sum of £1,500 as a deposit.

Shobu added: "The original agreement was in Dave's name so I will have to draw up a new contract and get a deposit from you.

"I will need that ASAP, so can you have it ready by the end of the week."

Her short-lived stint in the show went down a treat with viewers who were glad to see the actress – almost 21 years after leaving the BBC soap.

In the penultimate episode of the series, Sheridan's character Sam is sacked from her job following an investigation into insider trading.

Her ex Dave also steals the £50,000 she took from work and put in her daughter's account – leaving her with nothing.

Shobu was axed by EastEnders when a new producer nickednamed "the axeman" joined the soap in 1998.

  • Cleaning Up concludes next Wednesday, February 13 at 9pm on ITV.
