Mo Harris is on her way back to EastEnders as Laila Morse is set to reprise her iconic role this spring.

 Mo first landed on our screens in 2000 as the no-nonsense matriarch of the Slater family and quickly became a fan favourite for her infamous one liners and dodgy dealings.

Over her 19 collective years in Albert Square, Mo was never far from drama and has been involved in some of the show’s most iconic storylines including her long-time feud with Pat Butcher (Pam St Clement), helping a young Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) give birth on Dot’s sofa, and ceremoniously pretending that Kat (Jessie Wallace) had died in one of her many money-making schemes.


Mo left Walford back in 2021 to go on a cruise with on/off love interest turned fiancé, Fat Elvis, and has made guest appearances since. Mo arrives back in the Square alongside great-grandson Freddie Slater, and whilst the exact circumstances relating to their return currently remain under wraps, one thing is for certain, where Mo goes, trouble inevitably follows…

Before they arrive on screen, an exclusive first-look at Mo and Freddie’s decision to return home will premiere on the EastEnders TikTok channel in a limited series, following both characters in Mo’s caravan where she has been living ever since leaving Walford.


On returning to EastEnders, Laila Morse said: “I’m delighted to be coming home to Walford to bring Mo back to life. 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.”


Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer 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 [played by Bobby Brazier].”

Laila Morse has already started filming and these scenes will air in the Spring.
