EastEnders spoilers follow.
Jack Branning has cheated on Denise Fox again on EastEnders, as the pair’s relationship deteriorated further.
The police officer slept with Stacey Slater before Christmas, with matters being complicated further when both Denise and Stacey witnessed the death of Keanu Taylor.
Tonight’s (January 29) episode began with Jack and the family preparing to throw a surprise party to celebrate Denise’s birthday, though her mind was elsewhere as she barely acknowledged her family.
Upon being given a gift, Denise became overwhelmed as she stormed out to get some fresh air, with a similarly distracted Linda looking on in the distance.
Jack attempted to repair the situation by buying Denise flowers, but his attempt at a kiss was rebutted as Denise caught a glimpse of Nish in the background, leaving Jack nonplussed as to how to repair matters.
Jack later came to Stacey's rescue as she came under fire from Nish, who was seeking to piece together the blanks from the events on Christmas Day, which saw him temporarily lose his memory.
Denise, meanwhile, was consoling Raymond as he proclaimed that he "wanted his mummy back," leading her to realise that she needed to open up emotionally for the sake of her and her family.
It could be futile, however, as Jack was shown sharing a kiss with an emotional Stacey at the same time. They subsequently apologised to each other, but Jack clearly had something on his mind as he paused outside before leaving.
Will Stacey and Jack be able to resist each other? And will Denise discover her husband's betrayal?
