This week’s EastEnders has given us punch-ups, more trauma for poor Dot (June Brown), Ian (Adam Woodyatt) in a medical dilemma and Rebecca (Jasmine Armfield) in a compromising position with her aunt’s play-thing. Certainly not a boring visit to Albert Square by any stretch of the imagination! Here are a few highlights and some exciting news…
Denise in a dust-up ~ Keegan (Zack Morris) gets his come-uppance in the form of post-natal Denise (Diane Parish), this week! The horrid teen winds up the shop worker to the point of no return and she sees red. I’m sure we all pretended we didn’t see that bodily harm, didn’t we? The boy makes my blood boil so it’s no wonder he’s doing the same to one of the Square’s most gutsy ladies. Well done, Denise! Give him another punch for all of us… Plus well done to Zack Morris for having the desired effect, he is a playing a character that we’re supposed to hate, after all.
Dot’s dodgy driving ~ Despite the warnings, Dot goes out driving this week – and with little Matthew in the car, too! It’s an accident waiting to happen and Kim (Tameka Empson) is first to point the finger at the traumatised stalwart. However, mouthy Kim can’t stay angry with her for long, when Dot breaks down in highly emotive scenes it’s enough to melt the hardest of hearts, I’d wager. When will Dot catch a break? 2017 is continuing where 2016 left off for our favourite long-term cast member.
Ian’s ignorance ~ Ian Beale has been to have his health check up, despite his initial reluctance, however the concern shown by the professional whom he cagily confided in has put him in a flat spin. The hapless entrepreneur seems to have decided that ignorance is bliss. However, with his own self-check almost interrupted by Jane (Laurie Brett), he is obviously not ignoring the possibilities entirely. Come on, Ian – man up!
Raunchy Rebecca ~ Bex has become quite sexually confident since her virginity was well and truly lost. Therefore she has no qualms about jumping into bed with Auntie Michelle’s (Jenna Russell) American beau, Preston (Martin Anzor). I’m not so sure if that dalliance was the horrifying part or if I was more disgusted by Michelle sleeping with her toy-boy afterwards, and with the knowledge that he had slept with her Niece! Have a word with yourself, Michelle!
Break A Leg Awards 2017 ~ Long-listing has commenced for the 2017 Break A Leg Awards and we are delighted to announce that both Adam Woodyatt and Laurie Brett have made the long-list for Best Actor on Television and Best Actress on Television respectively! Good luck to them, short-lists will be announced in October 2017.
