In the episode of EastEnders that airs on Thursday 8th December, things go from bad to worse for Roxy while elsewhere, the tension grows between Ronnie and Jack…


As the gossip spreads around the Square, Roxy talks to Phil about everything that’s been happening lately, which leads to her later reflecting on her actions.

Also in this episode, after a successful rehearsal for the play, Denise is given a confidence boost by her tutor, Jorgen. Back home later, Denise arrives to find a touching gift from Patrick. But he doesn’t get the reaction he was hoping for as she drops a bombshell.

And finally, Shakil makes plans to get an oblivious Carmel out of the house ahead of his date with Bex tomorrow.

EastEnders continues on Friday 9th December, and we rejoin the drama on Albert Square as a nervous Shakil and Bex prepare for their big night together…

However, when Shakil comes up with an excuse to get out of a family dinner, Kush realises he’s hiding something. When he then finds out that Shakil and Bex are planning to sleep together, he offers some brotherly advice.
