EastEnders' Nugget Gulati to be drawn into steroids story

EastEnders spoilers follow.

EastEnders' Nugget Gulati will be tempted to take steroids next week as Denzel Danes’ ongoing steroid-dependency storyline continues.

The major storyline kicked off in recent weeks when Denzel turned to anabolic steroids in a bid to boost his confidence following struggles with his body image.

At the start of the week, Amy Mitchell grows jealous over Denzel's new friendship with influencer Ebony.

The situation prompts Amy to decide that she's ready to take the next step with Denzel and sleep with him.

Concerned, Amy's sister Penny warns that she shouldn’t rush into the decision until she's sure, but Amy is determined. She attends Denzel's party, and the couple head upstairs.

When Denzel starts experiencing problems related to his steroid use, Amy tries to make him feel better. However, Denzel grows frustrated and winds up offending Amy in the process.

Afterwards, Nugget catches up with Amy, but he completely misreads the situation and tries to kiss her. The incident further upsets Amy, and when she arrives home, Penny is quick to realise something is wrong.

When Amy reveals all, Penny advises that she needs to hold Nugget and Denzel accountable for their actions, but she reasons that talking with them is the right way forward.

Meanwhile, Nugget tries to mask his guilt by making out to Denzel that Amy was the one who kissed him. Convinced of Amy's guilt, Denzel breaks up with her.

Later, Nugget is put in his place when Amy catches up with him and delivers some home truths about his behaviour.

Nugget is left questioning his relationships with his friends in the aftermath and feels worse after an awkward encounter with Ebony at the boxing gym and then has a clash with Penny.

With Nugget feeling low, he turns to Denzel for help. Wrongly assuming that steroids will be the answer to his problems, he begs Denzel to give him some. Will Nugget start taking steroids?
