EastEnders fans have been waiting on the edge of their seats ever since it was revealed Jessie Wallace would reprise her iconic role in the soap.

And the latest trailer has given viewers at home their first glimmer of Kat Moon making her explosive comeback to Albert Square via a black taxi.

Nail-biting scenes capture the moment Kat is sat in a taxi reapplying her red lipstick — a look inspired by Hollywood star Joan Collins, according to Jessie.

Tear-jerking scenes also reveal Big Mo (Laila Morse), who makes her own shock return to the soap, announcing the devastating death of Kat.

The strong matriarch figure breaks down into tears as she shares the bad news with the rest of the family.  

But never one to miss a money-making opportunity, Big Mo plans a wake in the Queen Vic with a £10 entry fee, with a sign on the door saying: ‘RIP Kat Slater.

‘Tonight at the Queen Vic. Meat Raffle, Auction, Walford’s Got Talent. Entry only if you’re wearing leopard print!’ 

All the residents of Albert Square dig out their leopard print ensembles, Kat’s trademark look, to pay tribute to her. 

At first Big Mo tried to get in touch with Kat’s cousin Stacey Slater with the sad news but when she fails she is forced to make the trip in person.

Fans were left on tenterhooks over Kat’s fate last year in the final scenes of her Irish spin-off Kat and Alfie: Redwater.

Kat was pulled from the icy ocean unconscious, just as Alfie flat-lined during an operation for a brain tumour.

But they need not worry, as Kat’s return to the BBC soap was confirmed in December, with a source telling The Sun her latest storyline will be nothing short of a rollercoaster.

They said: ‘Kat’s return has caused a lot of excitement, but it won’t be quite what everyone’s expecting.

‘Rather than her friends and family rolling out the red carpet the residents are told she has died. It’s set to be a very emotional story-line — but that’s probably fitting for Kat.  

‘It won’t all be quite as it seems and the writers have some further twists and turns planned.’

Sadly it seems Kat’s husband Alfie will not be joining her back in Walford, as actor Shane Richie has confirmed he has no plans to return.

Jessie shot to huge fame playing Kat, a member of the popular Slater family, in 2000 and has appeared on the soap on and off ever since.

With her romance with Alfie being a focal storyline for Kat throughout the soap, it was believed that things would go well. 

In January, the soap star revealed it felt like coming ‘home’ when she shared intimate pictures of her dressing table while preparing for her role reprisal.

Detailing what it was like to be back on Albert Square, Jessie simply penned on social media: ‘I’m home’.

It seems the feisty television character will be taking some make-up and style tips from Hollywood queen and Dynasty star Joan Collins.

Striking Jessie shared a snap which displayed a number of make-up items released by the 80s icon, captioned: ‘Kat’s new make-up’. 

Returning: All is not as it seems as 'dead' Kat is actually set to return to Albert Square in the near future, following the cliffhanger end to her spin-off Kat and Alfie: Redwater
