In tonight’s episode of EastEnders, we’ll see newly single dad Michael Moon struggling to keep Janine’s businesses afloat as well as take care of his baby daughter Scarlett…
Both Michael and Scarlett have of course been abandoned by Janine (Charlie Brooks) who left the Square last Friday, having taken to heart Michael’s accusation that she isn’t fit to look after their daughter.
So, left literally holding the baby, Michael (Steve John Shepherd) finds he has to rely heavily on Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) to keep things ticking over at Butcher’s Joints, however, it’s about to transpire that Michael doesn’t need to concern himself about the home rental agency any longer!
The drama tonight begins when Billy turns up at Michael’s with a document from Janine’s solicitor which reveals that she’s wound up the company, and Butcher’s Joints is no longer trading…
And as if that wasn’t enough of a blow, when Michael checks, he finds that Janine has emptied all of the business bank accounts. However, as far as we’re aware, he still has that £450k that Janine offered him last week, so if he has still got it, he’s not going to starve is he?
Here’s a sneak peek from tonight’s EastEnders – which airs at 8pm on BBC1 – which shows that Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) has also been left holding a metaphorical baby, but in her case, the demanding bubby is the Queen Vic which she’s running after Kat and Alfie decided to take a spur of the moment holiday…
In other EastEnders news, in upcoming episodes, we’re going to see AJ Masood getting close to fun loving Roxy Mitchell, and that closeness gets rather steamy after the pair enjoy a boozy night out…
However, when AJ (Phaldut Sharma) and Roxy (Rita Simons) move the party on to Zainab and Masood’s place, it proves to be the last straw as a furious Zainab (Nina Wadia) and an equally fuming Masood (Nitin Ganatra) go nuts at AJ for disrespecting their home.
Of the plotline, a show insider told the Daily Star, “AJ and Roxy can’t keep their hands off each other by the time she gets asked to leave by Zainab and Masood.
“So when he suggests they carry on upstairs Roxy is more than up for it.
“Zainab would go mental if she knew what they were up to under her roof and it remains to be seen whether they can get away with it.
“Roxy is the last person who Zainab would want AJ to hook up with. Just finding them drinking together on the sofa was bad enough.
“Even Masood could not defend his brother this time as he had been pretty disrespectful.
“They’ve put him up despite Zainab not wanting him in her house and as far as she is concerned he’s been nothing but trouble since he arrived.”
We’ll see that drama a week today!
