Sean returns and quickly makes an impact when he picks Amy up from school.

Returning EastEnders character Sean Slater is already making an impact in new pictures from the soap.

Following 10 years away from Walford, Sean picks up Amy Mitchell – who he used to believe was his daughter – from school.

He was last seen escaping from a frozen lake in 2009 after he planned to drown himself, wife Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) and Amy, after discovering Jack Branning was her real father.

Ronnie Mitchell (Samantha Womack) saved her sister and niece from the icy water, with Sean crawling out of the water himself and walking into the darkness.

The new episode sees his sister Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) and Jack (Scott Maslen) panicking, unaware that Sean has returned to the Square.

The episode airs on BBC One at 7.30pm on April 29.
