EastEnders Spoilers: Exposed secrets and baby news - the week ahead in Walford

It’s another busy week in Albert Square after our long, four-day break from the show – and we couldn’t be more excited.

This week sees health fears mount for a number of Walford residents whilst Lauren comes close to discovering the truth about her dad Max Branning’s top secret job.

Is Max about to be exposed?

Here’s what to expect in the E20 this week:

Poor Bex Fowler decides that she isn’t going back to school after she was cruelly bullied by Madison, Alexandra and Keegan, leaving her dad Martin furious. Bex later confronts Louise Mitchell over the bullying but a whole new nightmare unfolds when Alexandra and Madison overhear.

Kush Kazemi’s relationship with Martin continues to deteriorate over Bex and Shakil’s romance drama, but when Kush reaches out to Bex he manages to convince her to return to school, getting back into Martin’s good books.

Kush has a heart-to-heart with Bex.

Despite Bex’s ongoing issues, there is some good news for the Fowlers as Stacey and Martin discover that Stacey’s psychiatrist supports their plan to try for another baby, however, Martin’s sister Michelle doesn’t seem excited when they tell her the news – could she be pregnant with her teenage lover’s baby?

Is Michelle having Preston’s baby?!

Abi Branning hosts a dinner party for Max and Lauren but the sisters become suspicious when Max is cagey about his job. Later in the week, Lauren visits Max at work, will she discover what he is really up to?

Tina Carter refuses to get support for her mother, Sylvie, instead taking her to work with her when disaster strikes.

There’s more trouble ahead for the Carter clan.

Meanwhile, Mick Carter desperately tries to turn around his dwindling money situation with the Queen Vic, but he is left even more disheartened when the roof springs yet another leak. However, Johnny appears to have come up with a new way to make some money, the only question is, will it work?

Just another quiet week in Walford then…
