Harry Redknapp's cameo details revealed, plus Frankie injures Nancy, and Phil wants a big say in Raymond’s future – it’s your full EastEnders spoiler guide for 5-9 July, 2021.
Frankie runs Nancy over
Just when it looked as though a sweet bond was forming between siblings Frankie and Nancy, disaster is set to strike.
While on a date with Zack, we’ll see Frankie getting behind the wheel despite not being confident driving at night. The result will see her collide with Nancy, who’s left motionless in the street.

Passenger Zack then calls for an ambulance but makes out that he’s merely found Nancy lying unconscious. And after the injured party is rushed to A&E, both Frankie and Zack are left fretting that they could go to prison if Nancy wakes up and remembers what actually happened.
Phil reveals all to Raymond
I don’t think I’ve ever seen Phil’s bookshelves, but it’s doubtful that a copy of Calm Parents, Happy Kids is on them. When it came to bringing up children, Phil obviously took tips from the far more niche title, Furious Parents, Dejected Kids. And yet, despite having made an absolute mess of raising his Mini Mitchells, Phil now ends up telling Raymond that he’s his dad.
He also starts seeking out a lawyer to take on Denise who, understandably, doesn’t want Phil playing any part in her son’s life. But with go-to brief Ritchie too busy and Gray having also let him down, might he be forced to accept ostracised son Ben’s offer of help?
Harry Redknapp guest stars
Rocky has told plenty of tall tales about rubbing shoulders with various celebrities, but they’ve all been met with a disbelieving chuckle and the odd roll of the eyes. No one really thinks he’s spent his life working with the rich and famous, so when he now starts claiming to be buddies with Harry Redknapp, few take him at his word.
So expect mouths to be left gaping open when the former West Ham manager does a Boris Johnson and turn up in Albert Square playing himself. It’s a cameo that must be wish-fulfilment dream for lifelong Hammers fan Danny Dyer, so fingers crossed Mick gets to share a scene with the main man.
Can Bobby win Dana back?
Bobby remains heartbroken that Dana chose to end their relationship after he admitted to the not-exactly-insignificant crime of killing his own sister.
Deciding that he needs to help, Peter ends up swiping Bobby’s phone and arranging to meet with Dana behind his brother’s back. His plea results in Dana turning up unexpectedly at the restaurant, all of which leads to a flustered Bobby getting a few tips from Rocky on how to win her over. But will Dana be convinced to give things another go?
Chelsea woos Gray
Finally, we get Chelsea admitting to Gray that she’s finding it tough being at home with an increasingly unpredictable Isaac.
After Chelsea then seductively mentions that Gray has a nice big house, he hands her a key and says she’s welcome to stay at his. No doubt Chelsea will soon discover that this key comes with plenty of strings attached…
