EastEnders confirms return for Laila Morse as Big Mo

EastEnders confirms return for Laila Morse as Big Mo
Laila Morse is to reprise her role of Big Mo Slater on EastEnders and will return alongside Bobby Brazier's Freddie.

Laila Morse is to make a comeback to EastEnders as Big Mo Slater this spring, it has been announced.

The popular character - grand-matriarch of the Slater family - has appeared on and off in the soap since 2000, most recently leaving the Square in 2021 to go on a cruise with her on-off love interest Fat Elvis.

Mo will be returning to Walford again, however, as part of a storyline that also sees her great-grandson Freddie (Bobby Brazier) return to the fold after time away with his mother.

"I'm delighted to be coming home to Walford to bring Mo back to life," said Morse. "EastEnders holds such a special place in my heart, and I can't wait to be reunited with my on screen family, who are like my family, as well as old and new faces."

Exec producer Chris Clenshaw added: "We are absolutely delighted to welcome back Laila Morse to the role of Mo Harris.

"Although her time away from the Square has been short-lived, the Slater family has endured a huge amount of drama since she last appeared on screen and Mo's return will be no different.

"We're delighted to welcome Laila back permanently as she is thrust into the heart of the drama alongside great-grandson Freddie."

Prior to Mo and Freddie's return in the main show, the pair will appear in a limited-run TikTok series following them living in Mo's caravan.
