EastEnders spoilers – Fans go wild as shock Sean Slater & Jean storyline aired; plus Emmerdale & Coronation Street news

EASTENDERS fans were left surprised last night as the soap aired a Sean Slater cameo for Jean's mental health storyline.

Last night (April 7) Rob Kazinsky made an appearance on the episode via video call when Stacey Slater enlisted brother Sean to try to convince Jean to get mental health help.

Viewers have seen Jean's mental health declining in recent weeks, as she most recently made an unwanted sexual advance towards Tom 'Rocky' Cotton.

After Thursday's EastEnders episode, fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the episode.

One fan wrote: "I was surprised that Sean thought that Jean was "Fine" after the phonecall. Jean was bitter to Sean at the start of the call but then she literally shifted the whole topic of conversation onto him about his MH etc etc. That surprised me that he thought that".

Another said: "I wish Sean could come back permanently to help Stacey with Jean. #EastEnders. They always bring him back for one off cameos but never a full time return. I think it's because the actor who plays him is based in the US."

While a third added: "Sean Slater needs more screen time!!! Jean is wearing a bit thin now."

    There's trouble in paradise for Jean and her partner Harvey Monroe (Ross Boatman) as her manic behaviour could put her in serious danger.

    After propositioning a stunned Rocky Cotton (Brian Conley) in the Queen Vic toilets, Jean was back to being cheerful as she baked dozens of hot cross buns at Harvey's flat.

    Her daughter Stacey (Lacey Turner) has been picking up on the worrying signs in recent weeks, while Jean insists she's having some harmless fun, and decided to call her brother Sean.

    Actor Rob Kazinsky made a surprise appearance as he reprised his role during a video call with his on-screen mother.

    However, Jean was having none of it and was irritable during Sean's intervention, immediately brushing off his concerns.

    Emmerdale star Jessie Elland teases shock twist 

    Speaking to Digital Spy, Jessie revealed Chloe is open to a "friendship" with Noah.

    "She definitely sees it as a friendship", she said, insisting the young woman does have a soft spot for the Grange attendant.

    "It's almost as if she starts to see him in a new light as this is very different to the side she saw in him before when they broke up. She thinks he's turned over a new leaf and is keen to patch up this relationship and be friends with him."

    According to Jessie, her character is "so engrossed in everything that's going on with Nate", that she won't be paying attention to Noah's attitude just yet.

    "She's enjoying having someone she can chat to about all that and confide in", she said.

    Yet Jessie refused to disclose anything else about the future of Chloe and Noah's arc, simply stating the storyline will go "in a very interesting direction."

    BBC desperate to have Adam Woodyatt back on EastEnders, source claims

    EastEnders’ Adam Woodyatt is wanted back in Walford as Danny Dyer, 44, who plays Mick Carter, is leaving later this year. 

    Adam has been away for a year, in which he has appeared on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity and is now touring in stage play Looking Good Dead.

    A source said: “Adam was one of the highest earners in EastEnders and there’s no doubt he’d be looking to come back on at least the same amount of money, if not more. They’re hugely keen to get him back after the massive blow of losing Danny. The belief is that if he signs it now it will mean he has to give Bev more in their divorce settlement.

    “But clearly the bosses at EastEnders need to know what’s happening.”

    EastEnders’ Rose Ayling-Ellis lined up for MBE

    Strictly Come Dancing winner & EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis is being lined up to receive an MBE as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

    The EastEnders actress, who plays Frankie Lewis in the BBC soap, won Strictly with pro partner Giovanni Pernice last year as the first deaf person to contest it.

    She is now in the frame for a gong for services to the deaf community, thanks to her ballroom triumph on the BBC’s Strictly. Her performances – including one with a silent section – sent enrolments for signlanguage courses soaring.

    Sources reveal Rose has now been singled out for an honour. One said: “Her success on Strictly shone a light on the deaf community in a way that surpassed everyone’s expectations.

    “Not only did she raise awareness about the challenges deaf people face, she was a true inspiration for them – particularly young people.

    “She really did break down boundaries.”

    Dot Cotton’s best moments on Albert Square

    Dot eventually succumbed to Jim’s advances and said ‘yes’ when he proposed in 2001 inside one of the carriages on the London Eye on the South Bank of the River Thames.

    They were married on Valentine’s Day in a remarkably uneventful (in soap terms) ceremony.

    After a mishap with viagra, Dot decided that their marriage should remain purely platonic.

    The loveable pair were devoted to one another and their hilarious bickering made for some of the soap’s best scenes.

      Emmerdale star Laura Norton’s horror as her hair ‘falls out in clumps’ 

      EMMERDALE star Laura Norton has told of the terrifying moment her hair fell out “in clumps”.

      The Kerry Wyatt actress, 38, bravely opened up about her hair loss battle – which started when she was just 16 and dealt her a devastating blow when she joined the soap.

      Laura explained in an open letter published in New magazine that she started taking synthetic hormones to tackle her “horrendous” periods.

      She said: “What they never told me was certain pills are testosterone-heavy and attack hair follicles, making hair get thinner and weaker, then fall out.”

      The actress revealed that it was when she joined the ITV soap that things got really bad.

      Laura wrote: “I got my dream job playing Kerry Wyatt on Emmerdale and – boom – my hair was falling out in clumps.”

      She added: “Thanks universe, great timing! It wasn’t great for the old self-esteem.”

      However, Laura said matters improved massively when she contacted her local trichologist – a hair doctor – in Newcastle, where she lived at the time.

      She said she was given drops for her hormones and supplies of ferritin, which helps your body to store iron.

      The star was also given a ‘hair-friendly’ version of the pill to replace the ones she had previously been taking and her hair started to recover.

      Corrie fans spot worrying sign

      Coronation Street fans were left worried as Evelyn Plummer came back after several weeks of absence.

      Actress Maureen Lipman hadn’t been seen on screens for a few weeks and poked fun at her on-screen grandson for rifling through Fiz’s belongings before asking him to take care of her dog while she ran some errands.

      However, Coronation Street fans were instantly worried for the pup who appeared to be shaking.

      One concerned viewer went as far as to appeal to Ofcom and Tyrone actor Alan Halsall on Twitter.

      “Anyone else notice the dog in Corrie shaking like anything and had it’s tail between its legs? It looked scared stiff”, the fan wrote, before adding: “I think we need answers @Ofcom and @itvcorrie @itv @alanhalsall can you shed any light please?”

        EastEnders fans left open-mouthed by Shirley Carter

        THE Carters mourned Tina at her funeral, weeks after her body was found in the Argee Bhajee.

        But EastEnders viewers were distracted as Shirley Carter was spotted sporting an unusual funeral outfit.

        Emotions ran high in Albert Square last night as residents and BBC One viewers alike bid Tina farewell.

        Tina’s funeral was also shaken by Linda’s return to the Square and her rift with Janine Butcher.

        However, one minor detail left some fans in hysterics as Shirley (played by Linda Henry) opted for a surprising outfit for her sister’s funeral.

        Soap fans took to Twitter to share their opinions on Shirley’s fashion sense and unanimously voted her outfit as a faux pas, even comparing her to animated characters in the likes of Inspector Gadget and Carmen Sandiego.

        “Loving EastEnders didn’t realise Shirley had turned private detective” one quipped.

        Another commented on Twitter “I figured out whom Shirley reminded me of! #EastEnders #SpyVsSpy.”

        Matt Lapinskas has moved from one British TV staple to another as he’s set to grace our screens in Hollyoaks.

        The Hollyoaks cast and crew have been tight-lipped about what we should expect in Mallorca so we’re none-the-wiser about who Lapinskas is set to play.

        To many she might mean trouble, but what’s Janine Butcher really like?

        Janine Butcher has been wreaking havoc on Albert Square on and off for decades, but the actress portraying her couldn’t be more different.

        Charlie Brooks might play one of the most well-known characters on British television.

        Often being ‘the one we love to hate’, Brooks seems more different to Janine than you might think.

        A family person who supports fellow creatives looking to get into acting with her platform, I Am Pro, Brooks is a mother, daughter, sister, friend and actress far different to the character she plays on screen!
