How are the Slater family members related, despite the fact that they have long been at the center of EastEnders?
Without the drama of the Slaters, including their sleazy relationships, shady business dealings, unexpected pregnancies, and numerous feuds, EastEnders wouldn’t be the same. The most recent addition to the family is Freddie Slater, who makes it seem like it is constantly growing (played by Bobby Brazier). The Slater family tree is summarized on Express.co.uk to help make everything a little clearer.
The Slater family tree explained
Since the first day of the year, Lily Slater’s (Lilia Turner) pregnancy at the age of 12 has been the main plot point for the Slater family.
She is the daughter of Stacey and Ryan Malloy (Neil McDermott), Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) half-brother, making the owner of the clothing store Lily’s aunt.
In addition, Lily is the oldest of her siblings, who are Hope, Martin Fowler’s biological daughter, and Arthur, the late Kush Kazemi’s (Davood Ghadami) son (James Bye).
As you move up the family tree, the situation does become more complicated.
Sean (Robert Kazinsky) and Kyle (Riley Carter), Stacey’s brothers, briefly appeared in 2015 before leaving the following year to take a job in France.
The man who had an affair with Alison was Jean’s husband, whose son was named Kyle.
Additionally, they had two daughters, Siobhan and Shannon Slater, who Albert Square is yet to meet.
They are all related to Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace), whose father Charlie Slater (Derek Martin) was Jean Slater’s deceased husband and the brother of Stacey’s father Brian (Gillian Wright).
Big Mo (Laila Morse) is not related to Stacey by blood; instead, she is Kat’s nan because she is Charlie’s sister.
Belinda (Leanne Lakey), Mo (Kacey Ainsworth), Freddie’s mother, and Lynne (Kacey Ainsworth) are Kat’s sisters (Elaine Lordan).
When it comes to Kat’s children, there is a completely new family bloodline.
She had Luke (Oisin Stack) and Zoe Slater as a result of her uncle Harry Slater’s (Dominic Rowan) rape when she was just 13 years old (Michelle Ryan).
Dermott Dolan became Luke after being adopted at birth by an Irish couple.
He was seen in Kat and Alfie Moon’s (Shane Ritchie) spin-off show, where it was revealed that he was a murderous priest, but he never appeared in EastEnders.
Until the truth was revealed in that iconic EastEnders moment in 2001, Kat pretended that Zoe, his twin, was her younger sister for years.
Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd), who was murdered by his wife Janine Butcher, left behind a son, Tommy Moon (Sonny Kendall), who is the cousin of Kat and Alfie (Charlie Brooks).
The twins Bert and Ernie, who are from Alfie, are Kat’s youngest.
Fans will also recall Hayley Slater (Katie Jarvis) briefly appearing on the program.
It is unknown which of Stacey’s father Brian’s siblings she is thought to be the offspring of.
As a result, Kat and her sisters are her second cousins, making Hayley and Stacey her cousins.
Cherry, their daughter, was born as a result of her affair with Alfie.
