EastEnders' spoilers: Money struggles and vile bullies - the week ahead in Walford

EastEnders’ fans have been in uproar after Friday night’s episode, which saw Queen Vic veteran, Tracy, get fired from the pub – and trust us when we say that the Albert Square locals are just as angry as we are.

But that’s not all that’s coming up in Walford this week; with Michelle Fowler, Louise Mitchell, and Denise Fox all having quite a lot to contend with.

Michelle starts her community service.

First up is Michelle, who starts her community service and is supported by old pals Ian Beale and Sharon Mitchell, however, local bullies Alexandra and Madison can’t help but antagonise her – and that’s not the only person that the cruel duo have their sights set on this week.

After tormenting Bex Fowler for weeks, the pair have been left fuming after Louise’s name was kept out of the bullying and they are keen to get their revenge, which is why they conduct a nasty plan involving her crush, Travis, which Bex overhears – but will she tell Louise what she has heard?

Ian pulls out all the stops for Jane’s birthday.

Alexandra and Madison also convince Louise to have a sleepover at her house whilst Michelle and Sharon hit the town, but the ‘quiet’ night spirals when Louise realises that the two girls have invited a whole heap of people and it turns into a wild party, with dramatic consequences for poor Lou.

As if that isn’t enough, Louise also realises just how haunted she is by her dad, Phil Mitchell’s, alcoholism when Sharon and Michelle come home drunk.

Denise is desperate for money.

Elsewhere, Denise’s money struggles get even worse, causing her to lash out at boyfriend Kush Kazemi and her sister, Kim. She later cancels the holiday that she agreed to go on with Kush, Kim and Kim’s husband, Vincent Hubbard, and when Kim shares her concerns about Denise with Kush he vows to get to the bottom of it – but Denise just ends up pushing him further away.

Meanwhile, Jack Branning confides in his brother, Max, admitting that he is struggling to move on following the death of his wife, Ronnie. Max shares his concerns about Jack with Dot Branning, who is stunned, but does Max really have ulterior motives that involve Dot’s grandson, Charlie Cotton?

Max confides in Dot.

All in all, it’s another dramatic week in Albert Square and we couldn’t be more excited for it to get underway.
