His rage mounting, Phil then has a run-in with Jonah, who’ll be seen threatening Sam. But after Phil punches him, Jonah issues a chilling threat. Shirley, meanwhile, blackmails Sam for more money. But when her bluff is called, Shirl retaliates by revealing all to Phil that Sam has been scamming him for months! Left reeling, Phil decides to kick Sam out of the house, but not before she comes to blows with Kat.
By the week’s end, events have taken an unforeseen twist when Jonah’s heavies attempt to get the rest of their money from Sam – only to strongarm Lola in a case of mistaken identity. All of which results in chaos at Peggy’s, just as a party for Jay’s birthday is in full swing…
Stacey has a warning for Suki
Eve reveals to Stacey that she and Suki recently shared a kiss – and her friend promises not to tell anyone.
But by Tuesday, Stacey will be seen confronting Suki and telling her that she’ll expose the kiss if Eve gets hurt. And following the showdown, Suki has an icy exchange with Eve, which leaves the legal advisor in little doubt that Stacey has taken it upon herself to get involved.
Vinny visits his father Nish in prison
It’s already been announced that Panesar patriarch Nish will be making his debut, played by the actor Navin Chowdhry.
Now, though, we have more details about his arrival, with son Vinny seen receiving a visiting order from the incarcerated Nish. After Vinny arrives at the prison, he’s surprised by the display of affection from his dad, who starts reminiscing about old times.
But Vinny just wants to know why he’s been summoned. What will he discover?
Alfie is in Kat’s bad books
Alfie has been tasked with taking the boys to a museum, so naturally he decides to do something entirely different and ends up whisking them off to a theme park. The trouble is, Tommy is soon revealing where they’ve been to Kat, whose blood is left boiling when she realises that Alfie has gone rogue.
Later in the week, Alfie will also be seen trying to drum up business for the Queen Vic – but again, he resorts to duplicity.
After learning that a surprise party for Jay is being thrown at Peggy’s, Alife lies and sneakily announces that there’s been a change of venue. But Linda tells him straight: his scheming won’t be tolerated at the pub.
Jay’s birthday surprise
Lola organises a surprise birthday party for Jay, and ropes Callum in to help, hoping that this will get him and Ben closer. But what Lola doesn’t realise is that Jay is reluctant to celebrate this year.
However, as the event gets underway at Peggy’s, Jay is left trying to feign enthusiasm. And as Lola tries to get the birthday boy to enjoy himself, Jay mentions to her that she was the love of his life. Is their romance about to be rekindled?
