EastEnders fans were in meltdown on social media this evening, after soap heartthrob Sean Slater returned to Albert Square.

Fans were taken back by his appearance, as he turned a corner to say hello to Stacey's wife Eve, introducing himself as her new brother-in-law.

"Oh BBC EastEnders, I wasn't expecting that," said one fan, while another said "Imagine not watching EastEnders anymore and missing out on this. Welcome back!"

A third person posted: "Love that they kept Sean's return under the radar!"

While a fourth gushed: "Yeah Sean is back"

"Well his return was a nice surprise! Should keep things quiet more often Eastenders," a fifth person penned.

Other fans took to social media to comment on Sean's appearance, saying "Oh my word, Sean Slater looking hot"

"The finest speciman of a man to ever walk the streets of Walford has returned. Welcome back Robert Kazinsky, never leave again."

Fans are hoping the character will stay on Albert Square for a while, with one saying, "Oh please tell me Sean is sticking around."

Sean, who is Stacey Slater's brother, returned to the square to visit Jean and Stacey and also to persuade Stacey’s wife Eve to leave her alone after receiving a call from his mum.

However, Stacey soon told Sean that they needed Eve's help to deal with Suki, and Sean changes his mind about Eve.

Robert Kazinsky also returned to the role in tonight's episode after playing the character from 2006-2009.

He made a brief appearance once again as the character in 2019, when Sean returned to look after his mum, after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the soap.
