June Brown wants more EastEnders scenes

June Brown wants to appear in more 'EastEnders' scenes.

The 88-year-old actress - who has played Dot Branning in the BBC One soap since 1985 - has revealed she wants to be involved in more storylines as it helps to keep her mind active.

She said: "I potter in and out and do a scene now and again.

"It's been very hard not to open my big mouth. I would like to do more, my mind needs occupying all the time. If it isn't, it goes all over the place."

However, until recently Dot was in prison for failing to call an ambulance while her beloved son Nasty Nick Cotton was suffering a heroin overdose during 'EastEnders' 30th anniversary live week in February.

But after making her return to Albert Square, June will now be hoping for an increase in scenes as she recently claimed she hopes to continue working into her 90s despite the fact she's losing her sight.

She said previously: "I see things in my eyes now. My eyes are not very good. In the left occasionally I do get this small circle with what looks like cross-wires. I do pray about my sight - maybe it will return."
