EastEnders spoilers follow.

Reiss Colwell has confessed his big secret to Sonia Fowler in EastEnders.

The newcomer has been hiding from Sonia that he's already married, leading to the two finally going head-to-head over the lies in Monday's episode (May 8).

It was Sonia's birthday and she'd woken up to some special treats, though Reiss himself was nowhere to be found. At the same time, Rocky was revealing what he'd learned about Reiss to Kathy Beale.

Even though Rocky was alarmed that Reiss had been on the phone to 'Debbie', Kathy encouraged him to keep the discovery to himself since he didn't have the full story.

Rocky already had his hands full with the coronation party, though he nearly revealed what he knew to Sonia before the festivities go underway.

Instead of telling Sonia the truth, Rocky decided to confront Reiss over the phone call. Before they could resolve anything, Sonia walked in just in time to hear Reiss confess he's already married.

Sonia was understandably shattered by Reiss's lies. Though Reiss asked to explain himself, Sonia was adamant that she wanted him out of her life for good.

Natalie Cassidy recently offered some insight on what Sonia was feeling when she discovered that Reiss was lying about his secret marriage.

"It just happens so quickly and he just says it how it is and she thinks, 'oh my God'," she explained. "I think it just hits her in the face like a tonne of bricks."

Will Reiss be able to explain himself to Sonia?
