Let’s face it, it’s only a matter of time before Ian Beale discovers that his mother Kathy Beale is alive and well - and back in Walford - and it looks like that moment could come sooner rather than later.
In tonight’s ‘EastEnders’ (Friday 21 August), Phil Mitchell meets up with Kathy again, but this time, there’s a problematic difference.
The resident hardman goes to see his ex, unaware that Ian and Sharon are following him. Luckily, the duo catch up with Phil before he meets Kathy, rather than afterwards.
However, while Ian and Sharon don’t spot her, Gillian Taylforth’s character does see them.
Previously revealed spoiler pictures hint that it won’t be long before the two come face-to-face, for the first time in years.
There’s been plenty of drama in the Square in recent weeks, and things aren’t about to change.
In the coming episodes, fans will see Shabnam and Kush experience tragedy, in a storyline that will tug on the heartstrings of even the toughest viewer.
Watch ‘EastEnders’ on tonight (Friday 21 August) to see what Kathy does next.
