Actress horrified by Little Mo's appearance

Kacey Ainsworth admits she was shocked and horrified by her character Mo's courtroom ordeal.

Kacey Ainsworth admits she was shocked and horrified by her character Mo's courtroom ordeal.

Although not by the case itself but by the way she looked during it. "I must be the only actress in Britain who could double as a moose," says Kacey, whose character was found guilty of attempting to murder her husband Trevor.

"A couple of women have come up to me since and said: ` You look much better than you do on TV.` I know that they meant it as a compliment but it's just made me feel even worse about the way I looked!"

One final thought about Mo's trial and her evil husband. Why is it that soap's two most famous wife beaters have both been called Trevor? First there was Trevor Jordache in Brookside - the man buried beneath the patio - and now Trevor Morgan in EastEnders. Coincidence or is there a rule in soaps that wife beaters have to be called Trevor?

It promises to be the most unlikely storyline to hit EastEnders since ZoeTattersall got involved in zany cult Nirab.

Mild-mannered Roy Cropper, so superbly played by Dave Neilson, is to take part in an armed robbery. Details are sketchy but insiders for the show says Roy will be carrying out the raid "for the best of reasons" but may well end up behind bars all the same.
