It was just like old times on tonight's episode of EastEnders when Sean Slater (played by Rob Kazinsky) made an unexpected return to Albert Square!

The popular character, who was last seen on the BBC soap in 2019, made a one-off surprise appearance during Monday night's episode.

Sean returned to Albert Square after getting a phonecall from his mum Jean (Gillian Wright), who is worried about what's been going on between her daughter Stacey (Lacey Turner) and ex-prison cellmate and now wife, Eve Unwin (Heather Peace).

Eve has been staying at the Slater house since she got out of prison.



On tonight's episode of EastEnders, Eve pretended to be Stacey's lawyer in an attempt to put the frighteners on baddie businesswoman Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), who is still trying to evict the Slater family from Number 31 Albert Square.

But Suki got the upper hand again when she discovered the truth about Stacey's "lawyer".

Meanwhile, both Jean and Sean put the pressure on Eve to hit the road and leave Stacey alone.

Needless to say, Stacey did not appreciate Jean and Sean's interference, which caused Eve to go missing.

Stacey has now been left wondering WHERE her new wife has gone...
