EastEnders Spoilers: CONFIRMED – Guess Who’s FINALLY Returning To Walford…

It’s a Christmas miracle! Kat (Jessie Wallace) and Alfie (Shane Richie) are heading back to Walford for Christmas 2015. But they won’t be alone…

Derek Martin will – after a lot of praying from soap fans – finally be reprising his role as Charlie Slater, Kat’s father, for a guest appearance in the new year.charlieSo far, soap bosses are refusing to spill the beans on the reason for Charlie’s comeback… but we have a feeling it might have something to do with Kat learning she has a son she never knew about. It was recently revealed that, on the night she gave birth to her daughter, Kat actually welcomed twins. We know that Charlie and his wife went on to raise Kat’s daughter as their own… But what did they do with her little boy?

Speaking about his return, Derek said: “I’m so excited to be coming back into such a big and important storyline and I can’t wait to get stuck in and be back with the family again.”  Charlie Slater was last seen in Albert Square back in December 2013 when he came to spend Christmas with Kat and Alfie for their final Christmas in The Vic.
