EastEnders legend Big Mo Harris returns to Walford as other cast members exit

EastEnders legend Big Mo Harris is returning to Albert Square for a short stint of episodes following her departure last year.

The scheming Mo, played by Laila Morse, 76, previously left Walford to spend time on a cruise ship with Fat Elvis, her long-term business associate and love interest.

After more than 20 years wheeling and dealing on the BBC One soap as Big Mo, Morse exited the square waving from the back of a limo.

Last seen leaving Jean Slater in a tricky predicament with a garage full of cannabis, conniving Mo is guaranteed to shake things up with a summer storyline.

Morse said: “I always have so much fun playing Mo so I can’t wait to get back to the Square and see what mischief she gets up to this time. I’ve missed my on-screen family so much and can’t wait to see everyone again.”

Mo's return comes amid a wave of departures among cast members of the BBC One soap.

Last week Nancy Carter actress Maddy Hill left and this week Tanya Franks has exited.

It has also been reported that five further characters are to say their goodbyes to EastEnders.
