EastEnders were left in shock on Thursday night when they discovered Big Mo Harris real age.
Big Mo has played an absolute staple character in the soap for an incredible 18 years and is played by Laila Morse who is the grand old age of 73.
However, it turns out that her character is considerably older, which shocked fans who have never been told of Mo's age before.
Laila's character's age was revealed by Jean Slater in a private conversation with Hayley about her pregnancy.
During the chat, Mo burst into the room donning a towel on her head asking if anyone had seen her work tabard.
A distressed Mo then stormed back upstairs after no one had seen it, despite Hayley offering to help look for it.
However, a less supportive Jean scorned: "No she's an 82-year-old woman she can find her own flipping tabard."
Even Hayley was taken aback by the revelation, asking: "Is she seriously 82?"
It's fair to say that viewers were absolutely 'shook' to find out Big Mo's real age.
Was jean joking in eastenders tonight when she said big mo was 82?!?!? #EastEnders- Alex :sparkles::rose: (@Alexhenville25) August 2, 2018
Big Mo is 82? Blimey. She doesn't look 82. #EastEnders- Matthew Rimmer (@MatthewRimmer) August 2, 2018
Obviously Big Mo doesn't look 82, but why would she when she's played by a 73-year-old actress?
