EastEnders fans were in disbelief tonight after discovering Kat Slater's actual age.
Feisty Kat first arrived on the cobbles in September 2000 with the rest of the Slater clan – but viewers were still shocked to her how old she is now.
Monday's episode started with Kat telling the rest of her family that she did not want a fuss to be made for her special day.
Kat said: "Lets get this clear. Tomorrow is going to be a normal day. No cards, no balloons, and no cake. And no one gets hurt."
EastEnders viewers then got a shock when Big Mo revealed Kat is turning 50.
Mo said: "If I turned 50 and had muscles on the go I’d hire a billboard and tell the world."
Jean claimed the message had been received and understood, adding: "A big NO to the big 5-0."
But she had a scheme up her sleeve as she enlisted Habiba's help to organise a big birthday bash.
Stunned EastEnders viewers took to Twitter after discovering how old Kat really is.
One fan said: "OMG! Kat is 50 shut up."
"She doesn’t look 50," added another.
A third said: "Happy 50th birthday Kat Slater! You don't look a day over 21!"
"Kat Moon 50! And still a tragic old slapper," said a fourth.
However, there was a massive mix-up as Habiba was convinced that Jean was talking about Mo.
Puzzled Habiba told everyone in the cafe that Mo is actually 49 – much to their surprise.
Lola asked if that was in "dog years", while Jay joked that she must have had a "rough paper round".
Tina admitted she was only four years younger and Habiba suggested that Mo might have a condition that makes her age backwards.
