EastEnders has revealed a first look at Whitney Dean's hen party.

Whitney and her fiancé Callum Highway will both be enjoying hen and stag celebrations in the build-up to their big day – and in true Walford style, they won't be going quite to plan.

The parties air across two episodes on August 29 and 30, setting the stage for the dramatic wedding scenes to follow.

These new spoiler pictures from the hen party show the gathering getting off to a chaotic start.

As everyone gets into the party spirit, there's an unfortunate incident when Rainie Branning (Tanya Franks) starts to choke on a straw.

When Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) notices what's going on, she springs into action and manages to save the day. But it's fair to say this won't be the only drama to take place on the evening…

Over on Hollyoaks, Ollie Morgan starts to struggle with his guilt after lying about the paternity of baby DJ.

Fans know that Ollie (Aedan Duckworth) has misled everyone over Mandy's baby son, falsely claiming that DNA test results revealed Darren Osborne as the father.

Upcoming episodes see Darren and Mandy try to nudge Ollie into developing more of a bond with DJ, so they make up an emergency which forces them to spend time together.

Ollie takes DJ out on his latest date with Brooke (Talia Grant), which disrupts her plans to finally tell him about her own baby news.

When Ollie has to run back to get DJ's blanket, he leaves Brooke with the baby and she's overwhelmed by this taste of what's to come.

Coming up on Coronation Street, Aggie Bailey lands herself a new job after hearing about her family's latest financial crisis.

The show is lining up a week of revelations for the new Bailey family, as Ed (Trevor Michael Georges) has to come clean about how he's in a mess with money and needs £5,000 to get back on track.

This also leads to a bigger bombshell, as Ed also admits that he was to blame for the Baileys losing their previous home. Aggie had always previously believed that her son Michael and his get-rich-quick schemes were to blame for their misfortunes.

As Aggie struggles to cope with the realisation that she has been lied to for months, she walks out on Ed and goes to stay with a friend.

However, Aggie still has the family's best interests in mind and when she sees Roy Cropper struggling with increased custom at the café, she offers her services.

Roy agrees to give Aggie a trial, but as they spend time together, he also provides some words of wisdom which encourage her to stop giving Ed such a hard time.

Lorna Laidlaw, who plays Aggie, revealed: "Aggie goes to stay with a friend of hers who she works with, who she doesn't really like. That's how bad it is! I don't want to give too much away about that, but it's brilliant.

"Another brilliant thing is, when I read the brief for Aggie, they said she was a brilliant cook and I went: 'No, she ain't! Absolutely not, she cannot cook for toffee'. I said it's a more interesting thing if she cannot cook and she still blags her way into working in a café.

"Aggie and Roy are very different. It's so lovely because it's him that gets her back to her husband. It's beautiful. He helps to save her marriage."

Meanwhile, Emmerdale fans will see Amy Wyatt continue to struggle with her guilt in the build-up to Frank Clayton's funeral.

Amy (Natalie Ann Jamieson) is tormenting herself after causing the fire that killed Frank, especially after her mum and partner-in-crime Kerry found a sneaky way to blame Frank for starting the blaze.

Next week, Frank's daughter Tracy Metcalfe asks Kerry to provide some pictures showing him working at the factory, wanting a wide variety of photos for the order of service at the funeral.

Although Kerry is able to remain calm and avoid letting her guilt show, weak link Amy is sickened by the ongoing cover-up – especially as Tracy and Vanessa are so touched by their recent help.

With the funeral growing closer, is it only a matter of time before Amy's conscience gets the better of her and she makes a confession?
