EastEnders villain Graham Foster was last seen in Walford over 17 years ago.

The evil character was famously played by actor Alex McSweeney from 2003 until 2005.

Fans of the BBC One soap will remember he befriended Little Mo Mitchell (Kacey Ainsworth) when she worked as a barmaid in the Queen Vic.

One night in pub when he and Little Mo are alone, Graham refused to leave until the song that is playing on the jukebox ends.

Little Mo was unaware that he'd put the song on repeat and Graham eventually makes his intentions towards Little Mo clear by trying to kiss her.

She tried to flee, but Graham chased and raped her on the pub floor which resulted in her conceiving their son Freddie Slater.

Graham was sentenced to eight years in jail and has never made an appearance in Albert Square.

However, a grown-up Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) made a shock return to Walford in recent scenes.

Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) was about to call the police when the teenager started causing trouble in the market.

However, things took a turn when Freddie introduced himself to Billy as his son.

Billy struggles with what to say to him in upcoming scenes because even though Billy and Little Mo were married at the time she was raped, he ultimately couldn’t come to terms with bringing up the rapist’s child and Mo and Freddie left Walford.

How will Freddie react when he learns about his dad's real identity?

Graham actor Alex has appeared in rival soaps Hollyoaks and Doctors as well as Call the Midwife.

Alongside his acting career, the TV star is also a Doctor of Literature and lectures at two London Universities in English and Drama.

He also wrote a play named Out of the Cage about women munition workers in the First World War.

It subsequently got published and premiered at the Park Theatre London in January 2015.

His latest filmography credit appears to be in television series The Athena back in 2019.

Before joining EastEnders, he was a regular guest actor on ITV police drama The Bill before taking of the role of series regular David Redford.

As well as appearing on TV shows, he's also starred in movies such as The Escort, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, Shoot on Sight and more recently Oedipus in 2012.

EastEnders airs Monday to Thursday on BBC One at 7.30pm
