Kats father Charlie Slater and an EastEnders favorite is returning this Christmas only to be killed off. Derek Martin, 82, left in 2011 and returned in 2013 for one episode. Charlie will return this Christmas to spend the festive holiday with his daughter and family.
It was teased earlier in the year that this Christmas would be a tearjerker for Kat and it would have a huge impact on her life. Charlie will die on New Years Eve.
Many fans are already asking why EastEnders never seems to have a happy Christmas, we will certainly miss you Charlie!
