WITH new producer Chris Clenshaw at the helm, many familiar faces are returning to Albert Square.
EastEnders bosses have confirmed Freddie Slater will come back after leaving Walford with his mother Little Mo.
Who is Little Mo and what happened to her?
The daughter of Charlie, Maureen "Little Mo" Slater is a family member fans may have forgotten.
She first stepped into the fictional London borough alongside her family in September, 2000, the day of Ethel Skinner's funeral.
Unlike her grandmother, Big Mo, who has been confirmed for her own return to the BBC One program, Little Mo was known for her timid disposition.
Life hasn't been easy for Little Mo.

She is perhaps best known for being part of a powerful domestic abuse storyline, years before Chantelle and Gray Atkins.
While she settled into the Square without him, her husband Trevor Morgan eventually joined her and it was soon revealed he was abusing her.
Little Mo was worn down so much, she had become unable to leave Trevor – until New Year's Eve in 2001.
In iconic scenes, Little Mo struck back by repeatedly hitting Trevor with an iron, leaving him for dead.

When it was revealed she hadn't killed him, she was charged with attempted murder but she made a deal with Trevor not to press charges.
Trevor was eventually killed off during a fire in the Slater home.
Little Mo was then able to move on from Trevor in Billy Mitchell but was then raped by Graham Foster, which resulted in her son Freddie's birth.
Unable to cope with the thought of raising the child with her, Billy called time on their relationship.
And after a string of failed romances, Little Mo decided she had seen enough of Albert Square and left with her son in 2006.
