As we know, Kat Slater is returning to Eastenders and two familiar faces are set to join her.

Big Mo, Kat’s grandmother, and Jean Slater, Stacey’s mum, will return alongside in the New Year and as Eastenders fans will know, this is likely to cause major drama.

According to BBC, the Slater clan will reunite “to sort out Stacey in only a way the Slaters can” as she’s had a tough time of it lately.

The last time viewers saw Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace), she had fallen from a boat in spin-off series Redwater and husband Alfie was fighting for his life in hospital.

However, she’s back and larger than life with this new storyline set to cause major havoc in 2018.

Speaking about the news, John Yorke, Executive Consultant said:

“The Slaters are one of the all-time great families in EastEnders and Albert Square has never felt quite the same since they scattered to different ends of the country, and in some cases beyond.

“It has been a real joy to find a way to bring them back together and we’re incredibly excited about where we are taking them next. It won’t just be familiar Slaters either as there are a couple of twists and characters to add fresh spice to an iconic creation”.

Although no official date for their return has been confirmed, it’s thought that the trio will return early next year.

Going on previous storylines involving the Slaters, these scenes will be explosive…
