We’ve had a dramatic time of it in Eastenders recently!
We saw Max almost get buried alive by his long suffering wife Tanya who after having a shock change of heart went running back to her husband’s aid dragging him out of the shallow grave she had attempted to leave him to die in.
After an emotional heart to heart Max finally shows some sign of remorse and agrees to leave the square so that Tanya can get her head together and take care of her kids.
One thing she doesn’t count on however is just how persistent Shaun will be in order to keep the woman he has fallen head over heels for. Does Tanya know what she’s getting herself into by shunning psycho Shaun’s advances? Only time will tell.
There seems to be more changes ahead in Albert Square over the next few weeks!
We saw Pat and Peggy away on a girl’s day out only to be interrupted by two very familiar faces in the form of Ricky and Diane Butcher. The two of them immediately realised that something must be wrong with Frank. They were proven to be correct in their suspicions when as the week’s episodes progressed we learned that Frank had died. This prompts the return of some very familiar faces.
Returning back to the square for the funeral is the conniving character Janine, and when it’s soon proved to be possible that she may have her own ulterior motives for being there Peggy is determined to expose her. Along with Ricky and Diane we also see Bianca make a shock return to the square with her 4 kids in tow! Dubbed as the Jackson 5 the family are sure to create havoc once again in the square and I wonder how long it will take before Ricky and Bianca get back together?
Their fiery relationship was once the talk of the town, and surely the writers will be planning some big storylines to see the two of them reunite. I don’t think it will be plain sailing though as Ricky seems to have grown a bit more of a backbone this time round and maybe less likely to be at Bianca’s beck and call.
Keep tuned into Eastenders all week, the action kicks off tonight (Tuesday April 1st) and we will see plenty of familiar faces make their temporary and not so temporary returns to the show!
