Bobby Brazier’s character on EastEnders, Freddie Slater, bounded onto the Square last year in search of his father’s explanations.
As soon as he arrived, it became apparent that Freddie thought Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) was his biological father. When he found out that wasn’t the case, he was completely baffled.
However, the truth is about to come out because executive producer Chris Clenshaw said that “Freddie will finally find out the truth about his dad” in the near future.
Long-time viewers of the program will be aware that Little Mo Slater (Kacey Ainsworth), Freddie’s mother, became pregnant with him after being sexually assaulted by Graham Foster.
Though Billy attempted to raise him alongside her as his own, he struggled to connect with the baby, knowing how he had been conceived.
Little Mo’s marriage to Billy was ultimately ended as a result, and soon after, she permanently left the Square.
She might, however, make a comeback as Freddie discovers the truth.
Although actress Kacey has said she “literally doesn’t have time at the moment” to make a full-time comeback, could she have found time to make a one-time return?
The one-time appearance of Jacqueline Jossa as Lauren Branning as she returned for a single special episode revealing Cindy Beale’s (Michelle Collins) whereabouts recently caught viewers off guard.
Before that, Rita Simons returned to the role of the deceased Roxy Mitchell for a one-time special in which Amy Mitchell (Ellie Dadd) came to believe that her mother was a figment of her imagination.
As Freddie learns Little Mo’s important secret, could Kacey be poised to follow suit?
If that wasn’t enough to persuade us, Chris Clenshaw has previously hinted that the popular Walford player might make a comeback.
In February, Chris said to the Loose Women panel, “Freddie’s in the show, so there is every chance that Little Mo could pop back to Walford.”
Even without Little Mo, Freddie will undoubtedly have a lot of support, especially from his best friend Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell).
Bobby, an actor, said: “Freddie goes into quite a deep journey, and I think Bobby will be a part of it, helping him and being emotionally supportive as Bobby does, in a statement to Metro.co.uk at the British Soap Awards.
It’s enjoyable to film, and I can’t wait for it to be released; things are going well.
