Several storylines hit their dramatic peaks in an unmissable week in Walford (Picture: BBC)

With hospitalisations, shock discoveries and devastating revenge twists on offer, not to mention a very Royal visit, EastEnders fans are in for a truly unmissable week next week.

Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) is feeling good about the future, and she’s keen to use her new cash to expand The Vic’s business.

Mick (Danny Dyer), however, deflates her optimism, as he implies that she cannot be trusted. Denise Fox (Diane Parish), meanwhile, discusses needing an investor with Kim (Tameka Empson), and Linda overhears.

The landlady tells them that she’d like to invest!

Elsewhere, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) bumps into Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Deol) who picks up that something is not right with her. She reveals what Jean did to her, and things take a horrifying turn when she collapses!

Kheerat, worried to hear Stacey could be developing sepsis, tells the doctor what happened between her and Jean.

Also next week, Zack Hudson (James Farrar) returns from taking Jada (Kelsey Calladine-Smith) on a trip into London to visit famous sights.

Nancy (Maddy Hill) is furious to learn he didn’t pick-up the keys to their new restaurant space, and Jada is less than impressed by her attitude, so she tries to comfort Zack. But ultimately, she gets the wrong end of the stick – and leans in for a kiss.

It’s all kicking off in Albert Square next week, and here’s a first look at all of the drama to come.

EastEnders airs these scenes w/c Monday May 30 on BBC One.
