EastEnders spoilers: A new Slater is cast to join Kat, Mo, Jean and Stacey in Walford
The Slater family are back in force – and there’s a new face set to join their ranks as they come back with a bang to EastEnders. Following the announcement that Jessie Wallace, Laila Morse and Gillian Wright are reprising their roles in the show, boss John Yorke has confirmed that a fresh character will be following them – though he was giving away no details on who they are and which Slater they are most connected to.
Speaking about the rejuvination of the family, which doesn’t appear to feature Shane Richie’s Alfie for the time being, John explained: ‘Kat took swimming lessons as a child so she survived the dramatic storm of Redwater! She comes with Jean, Big Mo and another yet to be revealed Slater reuniting to sort Stacey out once and for all.
‘As you can see, strong women are back at the heart of the show exactly where they belong!’
As well as the Slater women, EastEnders storylines will also focus on a fierce return for Mel Owen, played by Tamzin Outhwaite. Meanwhile, there are storylines in the pipeline for Whitney Dean as her half sister Tiffany Butcher returns and also for Karen Taylor and queen of the Mitchells (and the Square, let’s be honest) Sharon.
But lads, fear not – you’re getting some of the action too as the heist involving Phil Mitchell, Aidan Maguire, Vincent Hubbard, Keanu Taylor and Mick Carter goes spectacularly wrong.
