Described as an “eccentric” Anita’s character will try to help bereaved Bailey contact her recently dead mum.
Bailey’s mum took her own life earlier this year after her illness became too much for her to cope with.
And with Bailey struggling to cope with her loss, she will turn to Anita’s character in an effort to speak to her mum from beyond the grave according to The Daily Mirror.
However, she will clash with Bailey’s half-sister Chantelle who doesn’t believe she has the powers she claims to have.

But, the newspaper reports that Chantelle, who is secretly being abused by husband Gray, will be left with food for thought when Shyanna reveals something unexpected about her.
A source told the publication: “When Chantelle gives Shyanna a piece of her mind, she isn’t prepared for what she says.”
As well as starring in the Carry On films, Anita also appeared on The Morecambe and Wise Show in the 1970s.
