Fans were pleasantly surprised when two characters joined them for some odd antics during Thursday night''s scenes.
Shirley has been chastised after scheming Sam Mitchell met Zack, her boyfriend of her granddaughter Nancy. The romantic arrangement has stor Nancy''s heart and caused her to leave the Square, leaving Shirley unwell.
Shirley''s anger over the revelation at an event to commemorate her late sister, Tina, has been enraged.
Shirley brought Zack a punch, but it''s not him she''s shooting for the time being.
Shirley is sick of the Mitchells'' wounding her family, and she continues to have a long-standing disgrace over Phil and Sharon, letting Tina take the blame for the attack on Ian in 2020.
So, she''s decided to sabotage the club.
Shirley''s goal is to make sure the club is already under threat from rival gangster Jonah.
So, we saw her meet up with Dotty, offering her a sum of money.
Shirley said she needs to take advantage of the work this Jonas bloke is doing. "I''m requesting you to turn the CCTV camera off tomorrow and then you notify me when the coast is clear."
Dotty agreed, and supporters were concerned about Shirley''s potential.
One smiled: "Shirley and Dotty are cooperating," then followed the other in a series of applause tweets. "Shirley vs The Mitchells is happening, hell, yeah!" another said.

All-in-all, viewers were amazed to see Shirley return at the core of the action. Earlier, the show had seen scenes where Shirley was dissatisfied with Nancy''s departure from the Square.
Many people believe the character has been somewhat on the back burner in recent times, but they were delighted that Shirley and actress Linda Henry were finally given the opportunity to show their range.
