The nation goes into MELTDOWN after THIS happened on last night’s EastEnders

Twitter has gone into overdrive after last night's EastEnders wowed fans with dramatic scenes and heartbreaking storylines...

Last night’s EastEnders saw more screen time for Sean Slater, and soap fans just can’t get enough!

Sean was briefly seen on screen last Friday, but it wasn’t until the start of this week that we really got to know more about Sean’s epic return to Walford.

Fans have been on the edge of their seats as Sean received the heartbreaking news about Roxy’s death more that two years ago, and his now-legendary fight with Jack in the middle of the church graveyard left them wanting more Sean screen time.

Fans loved Sean and Jack’s graveyard fight!

And last night’s visit to Walford saw Sean’s story move forward once again as he came face-to-face with Jean and Stacey for the first time in 10 years.

But it’s not just the emotional scenes that have got fans in a frenzy, it seems there’s not a soap viewer on the planet who hasn’t missed seeing actor Rob Kazinsky on their screens…

As Sean took Jean along to her latest chemotherapy session at the hospital, fans couldn’t get enough of seeing him back on their screens after a decade.

After realising the enormity of what Jean was going through as he saw her having her chemo, it all got a bit too much for flaky Sean and he considered leaving Walford once again.

But as Stacey delivered some harsh home truths to her brother, it was like the pair had never been apart. The chemistry was still there between the characters, even after all this time.

Thankfully Jean managed to persuaded her son to stick around, asking him if he would like to get away from the Square for a while and go somewhere quiet where they could spend time together catching up on the last 10 years.

As this week continues we’re set to see more and more of Sean as his return storyline unravels.

Thursday (2nd May) sees Sean and Jean head off on their trip away together, but when an accident leads to Jean collapsing, Sean makes a shocking confession, thinking this might be his last chance to reveal the secret he came home to tell.

But what has he been hiding all this time? And will Jean be okay?

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
