EastEnders: Tracey gets suspicious over a mysterious man [BBC]
Viewers tuning into Tuesday night’s EastEnders were left stunned as the usually mute Tracey bagged more than one line.
The long-serving barmaid – played by Jane Slaughter – does not usually have lines on the show, seeing as she’s an extra.
There are a few minor occasions when she does say something, but usually not anything of significance.
However, the character amazed fans when she interacted with Shirley and Tina Carter behind the Queen Vic bar.

Speaking about show newcomer Georgi, Tracy went up to Shirley and told her: “Shirley, there’s a girl here to see you.”
But not content with just one line, the character was done there.
Later in the episode, she went up to Tina and nodding to a mysterious bloke in the corner said: “Do you know him?”
She then added: He looks dodgy to me!” whilst looking warily at the unknown man.
