But in following his hunch, Bobby looks set to get himself into much more trouble than he’d bargained for.
Phil can’t face the truth
There’s a fraught and febrile atmosphere at the Trueman-Foxes, as Denise realises that her ordeal with Phil isn’t yet over. Sharon tries to explain her side of the story, but both Patrick and Kim are adamant that they want to go to the police.
Phil, meanwhile, is planning for the future but soon realises that all may not go as he’d hoped and ends up having to make a huge offer.
As for Kat – well, she’s been left with a life-changing decision to make. But, by Friday, Phil’s hopes have risen – yet as he weaves a web of lies, fans will be left believing that he’s just unable to face the truth.
Ben and Callum’s night out goes badly wrong
Ben thinks that he and Callum deserve a fun night out together, but when Eve overhears their plans, she invites herself along with Stacey.
As the group get glammed up, they spot Ash and ask her to accompany them too. And while Ash is initially hesitant, a spiky comment from Suki results in her agreeing to go. As Suki simmers with rage, the revellers head out – only for the night to take a dramatic turn...
Suki to admit her feelings for Honey?
In the aftermath of the ill-fated evening, Suki admits to Honey that she said some things to Ash that she now regrets.
Under the impression that Suki is in the mood to confide, Honey then asks her an important question and finally gets a truthful answer.
EastEnders isn’t yet revealing exact details of this heart to heart, but in its aftermath, a riled-up Suki will be seen taking Peter home for the night, as if determined to prove a point. But on the morning after the night before, Vinny and Kheerat are left disgusted by what their mother has done.
Mitch needs a bed to lie in – will Karen oblige?
Following a leak in his bedroom, Mitch ends up sleeping on the sofa. But the problem is, he’s having to share this space with Banjo the dog.
Fed up, he asks both Mick and Billy if he can stay with them, but doesn’t get the answer he’d been hoping for.
In the end, Karen gives in and says that he’s welcome to share her room – but only for the time being. But will this platonic arrangement morph into something more romantic?
