EASTENDERS

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

Wal­ford is never more fun than when the land­lord or land­lady of the Vic is hav­ing a se­cret af­fair (does adul­tery come with the job de­scrip­tion, I won­der?).

The cur­rent in­cum­bent is Kat, who on Mon­day de­cides to ig­nore calls from her se­cret lover and then in­forms him that their dal­liance is over (well, I’m pre­sum­ing it’s a him, but anything’s pos­si­ble). When Al­fie shows lit­tle in­ter­est in their spend­ing some ‘alone’ time on Tues­day, Kat gets back on the phone to the mys­tery man.

I’m not re­ally sur­prised Al­fie doesn’t want nookie. How long is it since that ma­roon satin bed­ding has been washed? My guess is it’s never seen the inside of a ma­chine: there must be whole vil­lages of bed bugs that have set up res­i­dence there.

When the football team throw a party on Fri­day, Kat de­cides to gate­crash and, in front of a jeal­ous Kim, flirts and dances with Ray. If I were with the ir­ri­tat­ing Kim, I’d be grate­ful if a lamp-post flirted with me, but the ques­tion re­mains: is Kim’s jeal­ousy jus­ti­fied? I’m still hedg­ing my bets on the iden­tity of Kat’s lover, but I’m re­mem­ber­ing that fris­son I men­tioned be­tween Kat and Derek a few weeks back, long be­fore this sto­ry­line took off.

The big news of the week is the where­abouts of the photo frame that killed Evver (though why they didn’t just chuck it in the canal on day one re­mains a mys­tery). On Thurs­day, Jay clearly thinks the same and con­fronts Ben as to why he still has it.

So will Jay fi­nally crack and tell all? Will they man­age to dis­pose of the frame for good? On Fri­day, there’s a twist in the tale and the sus­pense looks set to con­tinue for some time.

It’s an ex­cit­ing week for Ma­sood, whose brother AJ ar­rives on Mon­day. Oh, dear. Some­thing else not to put a smile on Zainab’s face.
