But it's Sean Slater's return that has really got everyone excited.

The character is also shown in conversation with cancer-stricken mother Jean, who tells him although she thought cancer would be the worst thing to happen, it's brought her son back to her, which is a good thing.

But Sean doesn't look convinced it's such a good thing.
