EastEnders favourite Kat Slater will continue to cause plenty of drama in Albert Square as she gets involved in a fight.

New pictures from the BBC One soap show Kat, who made a spectacular return to the show two weeks ago, involved in a physical skirmish with Karen Taylor inside the launderette.

The duo become embroiled in a feud after Kat (Jessie Wallace) decides to make some money with a new cleaning business with Stacey Slater.

However, as she and Karen (Lorraine Stanley) attempt to put their differences aside, they find themselves coming to blows in front of the washing machines.

The two women throw clothes at each other across the launderette when Karen accuses Kat of trying to steal business.

Kat has been struggling since returning to Walford, as the other residents are still angered that Mo Slater told everybody that she had died in order to raise money to pay off her debts.

The much-loved character was last seen in EastEnders in January 2016 ahead of appearing in spin-off series Redwater.

She made a dramatic return when she sparked a bar brawl after she walked in on a benefit for her own funeral.

Wallace, 46, has played the role of the loudmouth, leopard print-wearing Kat on and off since 2000.

This episode airs on Tuesday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
