EastEnders star speaks out on return 17 years after exit

Freddie Slater calls Little Mo

Little Mo Slater (played by Kacey Ainsworth) may have left EastEnders back in 2006, but the actress addressed a scene from this week as speculation about her return is rife.

EastEnders’ long-term fans will remember Little Mo, one of the Slater sisters, hasn’t been seen in Albert Square for 17 years.

While she left almost two decades ago, several of Little Mo’s family members remain in Walford, and last year her son Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) returned.

He was a baby when he left the Square with his mum, but the 18-year-old returned to Walford determined to find answers about his father.

This week has seen Freddie doing everything in his power to track down his birth dad despite everyone in Walford keeping tight-lipped about the truth.

Freddie has no idea his mum Little Mo was in fact raped by Graham Foster (Alex McSweeney) in 2003, which led to his birth.

On Tuesday’s episode of the BBC soap, he was tempted to address the subject with his mum and phoned her to confront her, but soon had a change of heart.

“I’m just missing you, that’s all,” he said during the call.

He went on to say: “You sound happy, mum,” and was close to asking about his dad before stating “I love you,” instead.
