This fall, Freddie Slater from EASTENDERS is expected to make his long-anticipated return to Albert Square, but a fresh theory from Express.co.uk indicates he’s returning to share some devastating news.
After spending more than ten years away from the soap opera, Freddie Slater (played by Bobby Brazier) is returning to Walford. In order to start a new life with his mother, the EastEnders character, who is the son of Maureen “Little Mo” Slater (Kacey Ainsworth), left the serial opera in 2006. Will he, however, be going back to Albert Square to announce Little Mo’s passing?
According to BBC soap opera spoilers, an 18-year-old Freddie will return this fall.
Fans of EastEnders will know that he left Albert Square with Little Mo because her husband Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick), who learned Freddie was the son of Mo’s rapist Graham Foster, couldn’t care for him (Alex McSweeney).
Graham last made an appearance on the serial in 2005 when Billy paid him a visit in jail following the issuance of a visiting order.
The rapist teased Billy about Freddie becoming just like him as a child and expressed excitement to meet his son once he was released from prison.
Little Mo moved in with her family after Billy, who struggled to cope with everything, eventually divorced her.
Little Mo never had an easy life on EastEnders, and she is arguably most remembered for being the subject of a domestic violence plot line that her first husband Trevor Morgan perpetrated against her (Alex Ferns).
Oliver Cousins, her son’s doctor, became a connection for the character after her marriage to Billy and a disastrous relationship with Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) were over (Tom Ellis).
But once she pushed him too far and packed her bags to leave Albert Square with Freddie, everything came to a heartbreaking conclusion.
Away from Walford, did she and Freddie find the happiness they deserved?
While Freddie’s impending return has been confirmed by the soap opera’s executives, Little Mo’s homecoming has not.
Could Freddie be returning to Albert Square to inform her family that she has tragically passed away?
As he adjusts to life without his mother, would he eventually move in with his aunt Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace)?
Bobby, the late reality television actress Jade Goody’s son, is now filming scenes that will air on the soap opera in the fall.
Being a Slater on EastEnders has allowed me to fulfill a lifelong dream of mine to enter the acting world, Bobby remarked. “I’m quite appreciative,”
Bobby’s EastEnders persona, according to executive producer Chris Clenshaw, is “chaotic.”
Chris introduced Freddie Slater as “a turbulent 18-year-old with a sensitive soul.”
He is a young man of the modern day who is in touch with his spiritual side.
He is a wonderful new cast member of EastEnders who gives heart and humility to the character, Chris continued.
Jade, Bobby’s mother, passed away from cervical cancer in 2009 at the age of 27.
