Who did Alex Ferns play in EastEnders?

Alex Ferns played Trevor Morgan in EastEnders from 2002 until 2002.

Trevor was best known as the hateful husband of Little Mo Slater, who he made life pretty hellish for.

Trevor was violent towards Little Mo and, as her family constantly tried to convince Little Mo to leave him, the drama all built up.

It culminated in an horrific rape.

Little Mo eventually tried to kill Trevor by hitting him over the head with an iron, and she thought she had killed him.

Only for her to discover that Trevor had got up and gone to the police!

After Little Mo was arrested and jailed for attempted murder, Trevor went on to attack Kat Slater over his son. Kat used this to get a deal to get Mo out of prison.

Trevor later held Mo hostage in the Slater house and set fire to the fire. Little Mo was eventually saved by her neighbour Tom Banks but, when he went back to save Trevor, they were both killed when the house exploded.
