EastEnders’ Jessie Wallace cut a casual figure as she stocked up on groceries at the supermarket on Saturday, after her character Kat Slater returned to the soap.

The actress, 48, looked low-key in a grey T-shirt, faux fur jacket and black trousers as she carried her purchases to her car in London. 

Jessie made her return to the BBC drama at the start of last month after being suspended for reportedly appearing drunk on set during filming.

She teamed her casual ensemble with a pair of fur sliders and made sure to put safety first by donning a black face mask for her trip out amid the pandemic. 

She also wore a pair of gold-rimmed sunglasses as she made her way back to her Range Rover with heavy bags of shopping. 

Jessie arrived back in Albert Square last month when the soap finally returned to screens, after filming was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jessie was suspended from EastEnders for reportedly appearing drunk on set during filming. 

The actress, who has played fiery Kat on and off for nearly two decades, was temporarily written out of storylines after her behaviour was ‘called into question.’ 

It had been claimed that Jessie was hauled into a crisis meeting with show bosses, who were said to have suspended her for two months, ordering her to ‘sort herself out’ before returning.

First look snaps of Kat at the time showed her posing in front of the iconic Queen Vic pub, as fans eagerly awaited EastEnders’ return to screens after the three month break.  

It comes after it was reported last month that Kush Kazemi is set for a dramatic exit from the soap as his most recent storyline comes to an end. 

The market trader, played by actor Davood Ghadami, has most recently struck up a romance with Kat, portrayed by Jessie. 

However Davood will not be leaving Albert Square until 2021 with bosses having a ‘huge plot planned’ for his departure after six years on the soap.
