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… Read more & comment »
Masood’s brother AJ is headed to Walford – we’ll meet him in the episode that airs on July 9th – and it seems he’s going to make an enemy of Derek Branning within hours of setting foot on Square soil!

Paul, who’s previously starred in The Office, Life on Mars, Dalziel and Pascoe, Doctors and Gavin & Stacey in the role of Stacey’s former fiancé Achmed – who we met when Uncle Bryn took Gavin and Smithy on a stag night in his local pub – will arrive on the Square later this year.
