It’s your full guide to life on EastEnders for 7–11 June, 2021.
Stabbing horror for Callum
Ben has asked Callum to quit his job, but deep down he's torn about his husband’s demand. However, things come to a head when Callum and his police partner Fitzy spot the mugger who targeted Kat and give chase – only for Fitzy to be stabbed.

In the aftermath, the paramedics fight to save Fitzy’s life but it’s touch and go. And Callum is left bottling up his emotional torment as he’s filled with feelings of blame and guilt.
Isaac’s behaviour becomes more erratic
We’re aware that Isaac has secretly swilled his medication down the sink, but Lola is now noticing the changes in her boyfriend’s behaviour, with him being snappy one minute and manic the next.
We’ll next see him making an unexpected and erratic gesture to cheer Arthur up. Then he lies to his nurse and says that he’s keeping up with both his meds and his routine. And, finally, he’s set to become increasingly preoccupied with the late Paul Trueman, trying on some of his clothes and digging for information on his association with Ruby’s gangster dad Johnny. Patrick begs Isaac to let the subject rest, but it’s clear he has no plans to listen.
Phil has an offer for Kat
Phil has to make amends after overlooking Kat’s upset over her recent mugging, but he ends up finding a rather unusual way of saying sorry. His proposition sees him comment to Kat that the launderette is up for lease – and that he’d like them to run it together.
Kat gives the idea some thought but initially turns Phil down, not wanting to get involved in anything dodgy. But Phil assures her he just wants to have something legit for Raymond. Whether the residents of the Square want their smalls washed by Phil is, of course, another matter.
Rocky likes the look of Kathy
Sonia’s dad Rocky can hold an audience in the palm of his hand with his smooth patter, but he’ll have a tougher job than he’d anticipated charming Kathy.
After catching sight of Kath, Rocky decides he likes what he sees. But she gives him short shrift, spurning his offer of a drink. Can this Walford newcomer win her round?
Vi leaves Rainie seething
Battleaxe Vi learns all about Rainie’s chequered past and tries to matchmake Stuart with Honey instead. But when Honey mentions Jay, Vi lobs in yet another insult, leaving Stuart upset by his nan’s actions.
However, there’s a bit of volte face coming at the end of next week when Vi announces that she’s going to stick around and attempt to get to know Rainie a bit better. It’s a decision that merely sends Rainie’s stress levels rising further (and she’s already fretting about Bernie’s unshakeable intention to diet her way into becoming her surrogate).
But when she ends up ordering Vi to go back home, the sharp-tongued pensioner lets Rainie in on a sizeable secret. Just what does she have to say for herself?
