Now she has been pictured leaving filming at a registry office for the popular couple's big day.
Viewers have become obsessed with "Ballum" ever since they got together two years ago, and the wedding will see them tie the knot – or not as it is Walford.
Gwen will make her debut as Violet at the wedding.
She can be seen wearing a black dress, pink heels and a chunky red necklace for her grandson's wedding.
Bosses have promised that Violet will have a “hard façade and quick wit” and the ability to make Ben squirm under her gaze.
The soap teased: “She hasn’t spent much time with her grandson’s in the past but there is a big heart buried, albeit very deep, so perhaps her boys might need her more than they realise.”
Gwen said in a statement: “I remember when the first episodes of EastEnders launched and I was desperate to be in it, now after all these years, here I am playing a wonderful character.
“It’s fantastic and the cast are great, everybody has treated me so well and I feel extremely welcome.”

Executive producer Jon Sen added: “Having Gwen join the show is an honour, she’s the perfect actress to play the multi-faceted Violet Highway, a grandmother not to be messed with.
“Stuart and Callum are sure to find this out the hard way when she arrives in Walford for Callum’s big day and they’ll no doubt be wanting her visit to be fleeting but Violet definitely has other ideas.
“We welcome Gwen to Walford and look forward to the audience watching her make her mark.”
