If you're a long-running EastEnders fan you'll remember the friendly face of cab driver Charlie Slater who arrived in Walford with his four daughters and mother-in-law Mo Harris back in 2000.The doting father of four to Lynne, Kat, Little Mo, and Zoe Slater was played by Derek Martin who became an iconic and well-loved character on the BBC soap for an impressive 15 years.

During his time on EastEnders, he was found in the midst of some vast storylines often relating to his daughters, including Kat's heartbreaking abuse from his brother Harry to being charged with GBH after defending Little Mo.

Charlie temporarily left Albert Square in 2011 but returned periodically until he suffered a fatal heart attack in 2016 during his final and emotional scenes that broke the nation's hearts.

While he's been absent from our screens for seven years, his character remains celebrated with a special storyline paying tribute to his legacy as Lily Slater gave birth and named her baby Charli Branning-Slater.
