As fans of EastEnders will know, poor Patrick Trueman (Rudolph Walker) has had a nasty fall, following which he was hospitalized, but when he learns that he’s going to need a lot of help when he goes home, proud and independent Patrick is devastated…

And as we’ll see next week, fearing that he’d be a burden on Denise and Kim Fox, Patrick will tell them that he’s going to go and live with his son Anthony in Scotland. However, though neither Denise (Diane Parish) nor Kim (Tameka Empson) come out and say it, they’re hurt that Patrick won’t be coming home to let them care for him.

However, Patrick would much rather go home to the B&B, but his pride won’t allow him to say so!

It’ll be left to Dot Branning (June Brown) to mediate and make each of the three realise that they just need to be honest and stop pussyfooting around for fear of upsetting each other, and sure enough, a delighted Patrick goes home to the Square…

But as pleased as Denise and Kim are to have him at home, things start going wrong when they realise just how much care Patrick needs, and he of course hates asking them to do things for him.

So in the episode that airs on Friday 22nd February, when Patrick overhears Denise and Kim arguing about who’s going to stay in to look after him, he’s deeply hurt and, putting on a brave face, he tells the girls they should both go, adding that he’ll be just fine.

And though Denise and Kim are wary about leaving him alone, they do as he says and go out. However, while they’re out, a fed up Patrick reaches for his stash of rum, but he struggles to open it…

And when it goes flying onto the floor, Patrick overreaches in his attempt to retrieve it and falls out of his wheelchair, injuring himself further.

Will Denise and Kim find Patrick in time? Well, we’ll have to wait and see, but for now, here’s a look at the next episode of EastEnders…
