Photo spoilers: Who cares for love?

Rob Francis | 10:00 UK time, Tuesday, 17 May 2011

Week commencing 23 May 2011:

Ringing the changes?

Is that a band of gold for Ronnie, or is she banned from Jack's life altogether? A lunchtime encounter at Argee Bhajee could reveal the answer. 

Jack and Ronnie


Fading away?

Dot's concern for Jim, and her ability to cope, deepens. What should she do that's best for both of them?

Jim and Dot



Fats of life?

Fatboy may think his Mercy mission is heading in the right direction , but love doctor Kim Fox has a few things to say about his upcoming nuptials. And when she points the finger, watch out!

Fatboy and Kim


Masood meltdown

As her home life deteriorates, Zainab needs a should to cry on. Syed's on hand, but what can he do to help? Maybe a box of chocs would be a start?

Syed and Zainab


Mail egos

Yusef's looking smug as he delivers worrying news to Masood. To be frank, Yusef's making Mas out to be a second class citizen. Surely it's only a matter of time before he goes postal?

Yusef and Masood


Dampened enthusiasm

Ronnie makes a splash, as she steps out of the shower to deal with more macho manoeuvres - this time between Jack and Michael.

Ronnie, Jack and Michael

    I'm not sure Jack should be thinking about taking Ronnie back. It will only mess him up more.

    Looking forward to the showdown with Kat and Ronnie this week! Thought Kat looked lovely at the christening.

    Did I read somewhere that Bianca is coming back early?

    Well done for all EastEnders sucess at the Soap Awards. I love EastEnders, its by far the best soap on TV.

    Is jack mad, all the pain this woman put him through honestly poor jack I think he is a saint for taking back a woman who made him think for four month's that the baby he was feeding changing, bathing and singing too was actually his when it was dead and she even got it registered as James i thought it was just wrong that story Eastender's is great but this was just horrible! Honestly jack eye's testing must be mad himself wanting to get back with her even if she is his wife don't think will last cause Ronnie is leaving soon in the summer!

  • Comment number 3.

    I am really looking forward to this week. I love Ronnie and Jack. They are the best couple in Eastenders. They are so in love and they belong together. I know what Ronnie did, was bad, but she is not well. She is the bereaved mother, who has lost two children in two years and a miscarriage. Jack should stand by his wife for better or worse. They need each other and need to grieve for their little boy.

  • Comment number 4.

    I'm so glad Ronnie is back, and her and Jack are getting back together. They're perfect together no matter what Ronnie did. I don't see either of them ever truly loving anyone else. Such as a shame as lie everyone else I really wanted them to be happy and I think Ronnie deserved it after the life she's had. Them getting back together is the chance for them to grieve together for James, after all Ronnie only wanted her little boy back as does Jack, hopefully with each other they are able to talk about and grieve for their son properley.
    I also feel that Ronnie is still yet to grieve properley for Danielle, not fully anyway, we saw not so long back Ronnie break down and relive Danielle's death, so she's still obviously not over (as much over as she can be) this time in her life.

    So gutted that Ronnie's going soon though, I know it's not for a while yet but this is horrible. I love Ronnie and Sam Womack is such an amazing actress, shall really miss her on our screens.
    I Wish Sam all the best for the future.

    i want jack to take back ronnie i really do i mean shes had such a hard life n ronnie didnt mean to take tommy but samathas leaving so i doubt they'll be getting back together IM GOING TO MISS RONNIE :'(

  • Comment number 6.

    I'm so excited for the Chryed storyline! They've been away from our screens for too long, and I hope that the EE writers give them some more screentime in the coming months! Love them to bits, they're the reason I watch!

  • Comment number 7.

    I'm so happy jack is standing by ronnie and looking forward for their lunch date, jack and ronnie are my favorite. I hope they will make ronnie go get help and jack to wait for her and when she is better they will be together and this time ronnie should have happines and family she is longing with jack

  • Comment number 8.

    Ronnie&Jack well belong together, You can see they have amazin chemistry. I will cry so much when Ronnie leaves the square and i really 'ope its not for good. They are the two BEST characters (plus Roxy obvs). And you can really feel the emotion when they act. They,ve dealt with a storyline that has received not only global complaints but i believe personal aggression with the public. My auntie was heavily pregnant when the actual death took place, she refused to watch it for ages (even now she only catches up with it from the magazines) but she didn't make a big deal out of it. She didn't write to the producers about it. Its only a storyline. I'm only like a teenager so i can't imagine fully what it would be like to lose a child, but no need to get so fiesty! There only doin their job. Anyways enough natter. Good luck to Sam in her next role. Hope to see her in the near future on our TV screens. xxxxx

  • Comment number 9.

    i dunno where else to post this but i just saw the rainie profile on the characters page.

    all the stuff to do with phil is so wrong. they slept together ONCE while on drugs. it was barely an affair nevermind a romance!! and it was the glenda affair that ended in a heart attack. rainie wasnt even around for that!

    jeez get your facts right. people who havent seen these eps will read and think phil actually liked her. ugh

  • Comment number 10.

    Oh Eastenders usual chaos, eh? Oh please don't say Jim dies he is the best charectar although he doesn't do much- love him! xx

  • Comment number 11.

    I think that if jack gets back with ronnie then in time they should think of adopting a child or trying for another baby. They should also be able to be friends with kat and alfie in time.

  • Comment number 12.

    Most of u guys r horrible! Ronnie has had a terrible life she got preganant wen she was 14 and her dad lied and said she had died then every single night her dad would come into her room and rape her, her mum left her and her sister so ronnie had to take care of roxy or if ronnie left then archie would rape roxy, then she found her daughter but her dad made her die and took ovr the queen vic, then her mum came and completly disapointed ronni, then she had baby james but he died he took tommy out of shock and for jack ronnie makes a great mum but sadley these eastenders wrighter make her life a misery this is why some people stop watching eastender and why some actors leave pls give ronnie a happy end from walford pls and also her auntie peggy left

  • Comment number 13.

    I am really glad Ronnie and Jack are getting back together. They are such an amazing couple. They have great chemistry and they belong together. They are better than any other EE’s couple.
    Such a shame Sam is leaving, as I really wanted them to have a happy ending and for Ronnie’s luck to change. She has been through so much. She deserves some happiness. She is the most endearing character ever and Sam is so talented playing such a hard role.
    I hope Ronnie’s exit will be to go away and get the help/treatment she needs and hopefully she will return again. I would love to see her back in EE, get together with Jack and even have a baby.

  • Comment number 14.

    Cant wait for the Zainab and Masood storylines!!! Looks interesting

  • Comment number 15.

    I think What Ronnie did was wrong but she would of had to be a really good actress to have swaped James with Kats Baby Tommy. I think Ronnie and Jack are a Great couple and i am glad they are getting back together but I think Ranie Cross should stay out the way of Jack and Ronnie

  • Comment number 16.

    Zainab and masood get divorst and Zainab and Yusif get together.
    i am sorry to hear about Ronnie and how she is leaving we all wish you the best sam you rock

  • Comment number 17.

    Are Lucy & Peter coming back and when is Bianca due back

  • Comment number 18.

    I love Yusef... He's the best character on EE by far! He always makes me laugh when he manipulates people like Ian and then annoys Masood to get Zainab... and the bit I like the best is, Zainab doesnt know Yusef is enjoying it and then no doubt she will run into Yusefs arms and cry... ha ha ha ha! Go on son!

  • Comment number 20.

    i was writing this in the dark so some of my words are type wrongly plus i was angry

  • Comment number 21.

    tony can I just say that the reason why there are too many well how to put it, depressing storylines is because it makes the show interesting, if there were too many happy storylines it would make teh show really boring and then would happen, everyone turning on the tele to watch crappy corrie instead of the best soap in the world EastEnders

  • Comment number 22.

    i know ronnie has done something really bad! but i kind of like jack and ronnie together:)

  • Comment number 23.

    What is a sin Tony, is your spelling and grammer. Are you sure you didn't have your eyes closed?

  • Comment number 24.

    i love the thing with fatboy and mercy!! its got me hooked with EE at the moment!loving kim aswel she should have won at the britsh soap awards!! and the twins need to come back!! (well peter) aww and bless dot u got to love her!!

  • Comment number 25.

    I know what Ronnie did was completely out of order but she is my favourite character and i want her to get back with Jack and be happy but as this is Eastenders I know that won't happen!! Keep Ronnie and Jack together please!!!!!

  • Comment number 26.

    GO ON MASOOD! BEAT HIM UP! I think that Yusuf should go from Eastenders as first of all he hasn't got the looks and secondly he is a BIG old meany! Even Afia & Tamwar should go, maybe they could go somewhere else to live forever. Yusuf is telling so many fibs! And can Zainab do her normal voice someday and not put on an accent! It's annoying! xxx

  • Comment number 27.

    I've written this on the wrong page sorry! :/

  • Comment number 28.

    @ BBCRockstar - You say Yusuf should leave because first of all he hasn't got the looks? How shallow of you to say that. Why should looks come first? Plus it's not like everyone else in EE is GORGEOUS. Zainab hasn't got the looks either and she's horrible - look how she trerated Christian, poor bloke. Is this her way of repaying Syed?

  • Comment number 29.

    Fats shouldn't have told Kim the truth about his marriage. I wish Kim would stop chasing him, it's a bit yucky! He's a teenager and she must be in her 30s at least.

  • Comment number 30.

    I don't think a little happiness would be boring. The one thing that keeps me watching Eastenders is the simplicity. I love the drama of course but too much is a downer. I like when there's a balance between lighter storylines and challenging ones.

    I'll say it again. I really wish Sam wasn't leaving. If she wasn't I'd agree with everyone else and say Ronnie and Jack belong together. If she leaves...it's not going to make much sense to have Jack pining after someone who's no longer around. I love how Dot came in and told him to stick by his wife and that he needed to take care of her. Perfect timing there Dot. lol. Idealy, I would want Jack to stick by Ronnie. She was willing to stick by him and care for him and dote on him when he was seeing someone else and she wasn't sure if he'd ever even walk again. Sure, she broke the law. But she's suffering from a similar injury. Brain trauma. She's not well and she just needs help and someone to love her.

    Ending with, I LOVE DOT. She's amazing and always has been. It's sad to see her struggling but obviously realistic...and that's the magic of EE. Dealing with the struggles we all know first hand.

  • Comment number 31.

    Understandably, Jack is upset about losing James, but you never hear a mention of his Daughter Penny and he hardly tries to see his Daughter/Niece Amy.

  • Comment number 32.

    I love EE and I think it is the best soap by far, but I am sick of Ronnie moping around and I wish she would just leave the show.

    It's a very hard decision for Dot to have made about Jim, but she could not cope and I hoe she finds happiness again and that Jim's family stand by her.

    Fatboy should just tell Mercy how he feels. I hope he doesn't tell her about what his father did.

    I am liking Zainab being upset as she is such a cow. I hope she doesn't hurt Syed in the process!

    I hope Yousef and her get together.

  • Comment number 33.

    Ronnie is awesome! (when she's not moping) :)
