The Beales will be left in a huge mess in EastEnders soon as they attempt to deal with the aftermath of the cafe fire.
In tomorrow’s (November 9) episode of the BBC One soap, Rocky (Brian Conley) will start a fire in the cafe as part of a dodgy plan to claim on the insurance.
After the fire is put out, the Beale family are distraught by the outcome and Cindy (Michelle Collins) immediately blames Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) for the incident.
Cindy then storms back to Walford after spotting a warm moment between Kathy and Ian (Adam Woodyatt).
There, George (Colin Salmon) comforts Cindy in the pub and encourages her to head back to the hospital after sharing some home truths about her behaviour.
Once she gets to the hospital, Cindy appears to have forgiven Kathy, but Ian is then horrified when the police arrive and arrest his mum for her involvement in the fire.
As the week continues, news of Kathy’s arrest is rife on the Square as she remains at the police station having been questioned through the night. At first, Kathy refuses a solicitor but after hours of questioning, she starts to regret her decision.
Elsewhere, without a job at the cafe, Bernie (Clair Norris) manages to get some shifts at the pub when Elaine (Harriet Thorpe) decides to start serving breakfast.
With trouble at the centre of the Beale family right now, can they all get out of this mess in one piece?
Hinting at what’s to come with the Beales over the next few weeks, show boss Chris Clenshaw recently said: ‘I think he’s [Ian] very confident with his relationship with Cindy, but I don’t think he should be confident. I think we all know who Cindy is, and I think she could give into temptation at any moment.’
‘There’s definitely huge chemistry at Christmas between her and George,’ Chris revealed.
‘We have the Beales and the Knights come together at Christmas to have Cindy’s first Christmas in ten years with her daughters and Peter, but what becomes quite apparent is her and George’s connection when they actually start to reminisce about Christmases of the past, of them together in Marbella – which is not what anyone, especially Ian or Elaine, want to hear on Christmas Day!’.
