EastEnders’ Sean Slater COVERED in cuts and bruises in first look at his return

Sean Slater has been seen covered in cuts and bruises in first look pictures of actor Robert Kazinsky filming on EastEnders.

Showrunner Kate Oates revealed Sean’s mum, Jean Slater, would be at the centre of a new storyline which focused on her mental and physical health, but added that Sean may have some "unfinished business" to sort out.

She told Digital Spy: "It’s a lot to do with Jean’s story. I talked before about looking at Jean’s mental health through the lens of her physical health. Obviously we know that Stacey has been in touch with Sean… but Jean doesn’t know that!

"Jean hasn’t seen him for 10 years, so there’s a lot of stuff to play in there as well, when Jean finds out. So that’s quite a big old deal."

Kate added: “Rob has had a great deal of input in his return story.

“We spoke quite a lot before I convinced him to come back and he was giving me ideas and I was able to bring them back to the team.

"They were really strong and really thoughtful. He’s a very considered actor and he thinks a lot about that character, and that’s why I’m really excited to work with him."

And in first look images, we can see Sean is clearly not doing very well, as he seems to be sleeping in a car.
