Cindy hadn’t been seen for 25 years and she was presumed dead.

However, it later transpired her death was faked after being placed into witness protection by police.

She also had two other children with her ex-husband George Knight – Gina and Anna.

Viewers first saw Michelle back in the character of Cindy in June when they learned she was living in France with Ian after they reunited.

But EastEnders bosses never explained how the pair managed to reconnect.

Pointing out the gaping hole in the storyline, fans also suggested a flashback episode could have solved the problem – and branded it a “missed opportunity”.

Writing on a web forum, one viewer said: “I was really hoping we’d get to see the moment Ian and Cindy came face to face again in a flashback. A missed opportunity.”

A second echoed this, posting: “I was really hoping their would be a flashback scene explaining it. Too late now though.”

“It hasn’t been explained, and, bizarrely, nobody on the Square has even bothered to ask about how Ian suddenly came to be back with his long dead ex-wife,” said a third.

While a fourth commented: “I’m surprised it’s something that hasn’t been delved into after over two months back permanently, but I’d love to know what really happened – was it a deliberate move on Cindy’s part to track Ian down or a chance meeting over baguettes and brie at the farmers market?”

Viewers did get a flashback episode which featured Cindy returning to Albert Square after learning her daughter Lucy Beale had been killed.

Fans also witnessed the moment when Cindy packed her bags and walked out on George, Anna and Gina after they left the house.

EastEnders continues on BBC One and iPlayer.
