EastEnders spoilers: Kat Moon returns with Mo and Jean Slater but is Alfie dead?
EastEnders has confirmed that Kat Moon is heading back to the soap in 2018 – with Jessie Wallace reprising the role of the much loved character. And she won’t be alone either as she will be joined by Mo and Jean Slater as show boss John Yorke kicks off a rejuvination of the popular clan.
Kat was last seen in the spin-off Redwater which followed her journey with husband Alfie to a small Irish settlement. There, she tracked down her long lost son Dermott who, somewhat unhelpfully, turned out to be an unhinged killer with a temper and grudge to bear.
A cliffhanger left viewers wondering if Kat and Alfie would survive – with Alfie going into an operation and Kat left lifeless after falling into the ocean during a clash with Dermott. But Kat can now be confirmed as alive and well – with big storylines planned for her as she arrives back to her old stomping ground.
However, Alfie’s fate remains unconfirmed with no mention of Shane Richie heading home at this stage.
Speaking of her Albert Square comeback, Jessie enthused: ‘I am thrilled to be returning to EastEnders next year and knowing what John Yorke has in store for the Slaters is incredibly exciting. I love Kat and Walford dearly and I cannot wait to get started – watch out Walford, Kat’s coming home.’
Show boss John Yorke added: ‘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.’
Meanwhile, actresses Laila Morse (Mo) and Gillian Wright (Jean) were equally enthusiastic to be heading back. Laila told us: ‘I’m really excited to be coming back. It’s the one question I’m constantly asked. I can’t wait to see everyone and get stuck back into life in Walford.’
Gillian added: ‘I am delighted the Slater women are to be reunited once more. I have always adored working alongside Lacey, Jessie and Laila and I am looking forward to being reacquainted with everyone at EastEnders again.’
The Slater women will land back in the Square in 2018.
