EastEnders fans have been wondering how Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) – also known as Kat Moon – would be leaving the soap after actress Jessie Wallace was told to take some time off after on set behaviour.
Scenes airing tonight show Kat taking an urgent call out of the blue but it is unknown who is on the other end – however it’s enough to make Kat suddenly pack up and tell Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) that she has to go.
The very sudden exit paves the way for Jessie’s temporary departure from the show.
Why is Jessie Wallace leaving EastEnders as Kat Slater?
Reports emerged that on set behaviour relating to drinking led to Jessie being pulled into emergency talks with soap bosses.
There were additional reports that Jessie had ranted at members of the crew after being drunk on set but these were denied.
Kat has been written out for around three months although this will now extend as EastEnders has been taken off air due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
What happens in her exit scene?
Kat is seen taking a call and looking worried. She tells Kush that she has to go and will be back as soon as she can.
While EastEnders are not confirming or denying any reports as they don’t comment on contracts, Metro.co.uk understands from sources that these are likely her final transmitted scenes for now.
Who called Kat?
Bosses may be using Kat’s exit to set up a new storyline and all bets are on that it was Stacey on the other end of the phone and that the pair will return together, with Lacey Turner having been absent for maternity leave.
Or could the phone call be related to on the run Alfie Moon or even Kat’s daughter, Zoe, who she has lost touch with?
Only time will tell…
