When did they appear?

The Slaters first arrived in Walford back in 2000, and consisted simply of Kat, Lynne, Little Mo and Zoe. 

Following their arrival was their father Charlie Slater and nan Big Mo.

Kat and her siblings also had another sister, Belinda, who had a short stint in the soap.

Stacey and Sean Slater, cousin of Kat's daughter Zoe, also popped up in Walford with their mum Jean.

Stacey has a daughter, Lily, whom she hoped was husband Bradley's - but turned out her affair with Ryan Malloy meant that poor Bradders was robbed of fatherhood. However, Lily takes the surname Branning in tribute to her deceased father. She also has son Arthur, who is Kush's child, and baby daughter Hope, who is Martin's baby.

What are their most memorable storylines?

The classic "You're not my muvva!" plot revealed that Zoe wasn't Kat's sister - she was actually her daughter. Cue huge drama. Years later it also came to light that Zoe was a twin, and her sibling had grown up in Ireland, which is how the spin-off show Redwater came to light.

Little Mo gave abusive husband Trevor a whack round the head with an iron and was charged with attempted murder.

Stacey Slater cheated on husband Bradley with his father - Max Branning, and the affair was revealed in one of the most intense Christmas storylines the soap has ever seen.

Stacey also murdered evil villain Archie Mitchell with the statute of the Queen Vic bust after he physically attacked her.

Kat had been doing the dirty on husband Alfie Moon, and after weeks of 'who could it be', it was revealed that her mystery man was Derek Branning.

Stacey, who suffers with Bipolar disorder, became ill with postpartum psychosis after the birth of baby Arthur.

Jean Slater, who also suffers with Bipolar, was conned into investment fraud by dodgy character Michael Moon after her lottery win.
