EastEnders fans could be in for a treat in 2018 as Kat Moon looks set for a return – after viewers had feared that she was dead during the final episode of spin-off Redwater. Reports have emerged that Jessie Wallace has been signed up once more by John Yorke, the Walford boss who initially created the Slater family.
As well as bringing in the now infamous clan, John was also behind one of the soap’s most talked about storylines which saw Kat come clean to Zoe that she was her ‘muvva’. Since Kat and Alfie left the show, they headed to Ireland to track down Kat’s long lost son Dermott – who turned out to be a killer vicar.
A cliffhanger for the series saw Alfie heading into dangerous surgery and Kat lying motionless after an altercation at sea with Dermott – and when the plug was pulled on Redwater, their fates were left up in the air.
A source told The Sun: ‘John loves the Slaters. A lot of people thought he might bring some of them back. He believes they’re long-standing favourites who should be at the heart of the show and thinks Kat’s return will be a hit.’
John is also bringing back Tamzin Outhwaite as Mel Owen, Nitin Ganatra as Masood Ahmed and Maisie Smith as Tiffany Butcher.
There is no indication on whether Shane Richie is expected to join Jessie for her rumoured return.
