But don’t worry Walford fans, you haven’t missed out as there was a much-publicised double bill of episodes last night focusing on Kat Moon’s return and the Slater family’s long-awaited reunion.

Schedules return to normal next week so EastEnders is back on Monday 26 March at 8pm as usual. Kat and the Slaters face the music after Big Mo’s elaborate scam in which she pretended Kat was dead so she could raise money for a non-existent funeral to pay off a debt to a dodgy gangster she’d fleeced.

Elsewhere on Monday, Keegan Baker bunks off school to meet up with dad Mitch, bringing the estranged parent back into Karen Taylor’s orbit. But after bedding and bolting his ex a few weeks ago, will Mitch be sticking around this time?
