June said: "I have watched 'EastEnders' for years, and have been so impressed by the standard of acting. It was an absolute delight to work with Jessie Wallace and I am very excited to be part of the show."
Meanwhile, Jan - who is best known for her roles as Jan Howard in 'Howards' Way' and Babs Wood in 'Family Affairs' - will also star in the popular drama next month alongside Letitia Dean (Sharon Mitchell).
She shared: "I loved working on such an iconic show. Everyone was so welcoming. 'EastEnders' is really like one big family".
