How much have we missed the Slaters? It’s been a long time since Stacey and Kat have been together on screen! Presenter Stacey Dooley reunites actors Lacey Turner and Jessie Wallace to talk all things Slater and tease what’s coming up for the pair when the soap returns.

The on screen cousins take a look back at some of the family’s most iconic storylines including Kat and her supposed ‘sister’ Zoe Slater’s famous ‘You’re not my muvva!’ scene, where Kat revealed that yes, she was! Jessie shares some secrets about the storyline that could have seen it played out in a very different way.

This episode’s behind-the-scenes tour takes the tardis-like Slater house and Lacey shows off Pat Butcher’s famous bar in all its glory!
