Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 8 May 2017

Is it me or does it feel like time has stood still since last week’s episodes of EastEnders? Problems remain the same, it seems and misery is ever-present, here are a few highlights:

Lauren is thrown when Steven turns up at her work. Josh (EDDIE EYRE), Lauren Branning (JACQUELINE JOSSA), Louie, Steven Beale (AARON SIDWELL) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Jack Barnes

Denise ~ Oh Denise, who’d have thought that life outside of the Minute Mart would be so doom-filled. If she’s not rowing with Kim, she’s wandering about the Square with a long face. Who’d have thought that Sharon would have shown compassion? Plus, who knows, maybe there’s some post-natal depression there.

Lauren’s Predicament ~ When Steven turns up at Lauren’s new workplace, and with Louie in tow – it’s rather #awks ! Lauren is playing a dangerous little game and her home-life colliding with her work-life is rather a messy situation. How long will she continue to hanker after Josh?

Whitney’s at her wits end ~ Whitney receives a visit from Moose, it appears that Lee is filing for divorce. It all happens for he, don’t it?! So what’s the best way of dealing with it? Move on to Woody!

Michelle’s Job Hunt ~ Denise is still struggling to find employment, of that we’re all painfully aware – but so is Michelle. How long will Ms Fowler be in the realms of the unemployed for? It seems we’ve yet to wait!

Abi’s Co-habiting habits ~ Abi is irritating her fellow housemates with her OCD, to the point where Ben is plotting a little playful revenge. However she soon trumps that with a cleaning schedule! I doubt this living arrangement will continue to be happy for long!

Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 24 April 2017

Life in Walford has continues to be messy for its residents, with cunning plans unfolding and deceit in every corner of the Square, let’s look at some highlights…

Ladies Night ~ New arrival, Woody is full of ideas, it seems and not all of them bad ones! His mates happens to be strippers, so a Ladies Night is planned and there are a few happy punters in The Vic that night, too. Let’s see if Woody can compete against Max Branning!

Derek’s hired! ~ Honey was starting to lose the will with her new ‘apprentice’, Derek – however despite many false starts from the well meaning pensioner, the pair have struck up a good working relationship. Whether Derek will always be able to have a handle on resident bully Keegan? Remains to be seen…

Investigations at The Vic ~ New character, Fi is on the prowl at the Queen Vic checking the books and generally stressing Shirl and co. out! Meanwhile Max continues to hover in the background until he can make his move. Troubling times ahead for the already scarred Carter family!

Abi’s house-share ~ Donna and Abi are busy cooking up a plot for Abi to move into the spare room in the shared house with Jay and Ben. Moving in with her two ex boyfriends doesn’t seem to faze the young Branning girl, however the boys are not so sure. Persuasive efforts go some way towards convincing them and even though Abi has had second thoughts about leaving Dot, it looks as though there will be a ‘Friend’ style living arrangement going on. It’s bound to be interesting!

Steven & Lauren ~ Over at The Beale house, Steven almost puts the mockers on Lauren’s second interview when he answers her mobile and claims that the caller has the wrong number! His plan is foiled when Lauren receives an email, but if Steven doesn’t want her to get the job and with her dad working against her too – Lauren’s career plans look doomed to fail.

2017 Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 10 April 2017

EastEnders has been packed with more juice than a blood orange and still the drama continues – here are a few of the highlights from Albert Square…

Alexandra D’Costa (SYDNEY CRAVEN) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Jack Barnes

Stacey’s Preggers ~ Stacey (Lacey Turner) has been trying to get pregnant again so that she can truly have a baby belonging to Martin (James Bye) and she’s succeeded. Baby Fowler is conceived and the couple couldn’t be more delighted as they decide to keep the news between themselves. With Jean (Gillian Wright) back on the scene (hooray, might I just say? I love Jean!) I can’t imagine that the news is going to be met with a full hoorah as we all know what happened to post-natal Stacey last time. Let’s see where they’re going with this pregnancy storyline for the character. It could be a bumpy ride (pardon the pun!).

Bex’s Bullies ~ Bex (Jasmine Armfield) suffers again at the hands of bullies; Louise (Tilly Keeper), Madison (Seraphina Beh) and Sydney (Alexandra D’Costa). Destroying Bex’s guitar is one step too far, but luring her into a false sense of security by having Madison make her believe that she has broken away from the gang and wants to be friends, ends in more than tears. Handing over a box of sweets to Bex as a peace offering, let’s just say the chocolate ones aren’t chocolate! Louise is obviously not happy to be a part of the bullying but it looks as though she can se no way out. The storyline is reminiscent of bullying suffered by a few fellow pupils when I was at school and I’m sure is extremely relevant today. Bullying should be highlighted and EastEnders are doing a grand job of that.

Michelle tries to make amends with Bex while she helps out in the CafĂ©, but is stopped when Madison, Alexandra and Louise enter. Michelle Fowler (JENNA RUSSELL), Bex Fowler (JASMINE ARMFIELD), Louise Mitchell (TILLY KEEPER) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Jack Barnes

Sonia’s back! ~ Sonia (Natalie Cassidy) returns when her daughter cries out for help as a result of her bullying hell. So, is mummy going to put a stop to it? How long is she staying for this time? And most importantly of all, where’s her trumpet? Hee hee…

Ian steps back ~ Ian (Adam Woodyatt) starts to consider stepping back from his business empire building as Jane (Laurie Brett) tries to convince him that spending more time together would be a better use of his time. Will the workaholic take his wife’s advice and start to become all about the pipe and slippers? It is Ian Beale we’re talking about, I’ll believe it when I see it!

Lauren & Josh ~ Lauren I(Jacqueline Jossa) is dolling herself up for a night out with the girls again and happens to mention to Josh (Eddie Eyre) which nightclub opening she will be at. Of course he turns up, but she bolshie Lauren bolts when her crush goes to kiss her. What game is she playing?
