Jim Branning's Back
Frail John, 68, who plays Jim Branning, was written out after the attack last summer — and bosses feared he might never act again.
But he has returned to Elstree Studios, Herts, for an emotional reunion with cast and crew. And he filmed a few scenes despite having some trouble speaking.
In the storyline to be aired on August 11, he is thrown a birthday party by grandson Bradley and his wife Stacey — played by Charlie Clements and Lacey Turner. But Jim’s loving wife Dot — actress June Brown — worries that she won’t be able to cope with the fuss.
In the show the character has been off screen while also recovering from a stroke.
