Photo Spoiler: The return of Shirley - and some unexpected romance

Last seen being confronted by a very angry Carl, many of you have been in utter despair as you pondered poor Shirley's fate. Well, despair no more, as we can finally reveal where Shirley is! Phil finds out that she has been living with her estranged sister, Tina, who has been in an abusive relationship.

After some convincing, Phil manges to persuade Shirley to leave her sister's gaff and return to Walford, even it's just on a temporary basis... When Tina finds out where Shirley scarpered off to, she's quick to join her, and the pair end up kipping at Phil's.

Later in the week is Michael's funeral... and unsurprisingly, the turnout is a bit on the sparse side. However, Kat And Alfie attend to pay their respects, and end up growing closer as they bond through their shared grief.

It's a hard day for Joey as well! He goes to visit Alice in prison, and returns visibly shaken... But it seems the boy has a plan! He goes to see Janine with a bottle of wine in hand, and as they talk and drink more, Janine breaks down, and Joey comforts her. Soon the chemistry between them turns to passion! Is this for real?

Lauren gets a nasty surprise as she pops to Joey's in a time of need, looking for a friendly ear, and finds Janine skulking around half dressed! She quickly leaves.

This shock revelation, coupled with a recent falling out with Jake, leaves Lauren at an all time low. Finding no solace from her dad, will Lauren turn back to the drink?

But as the week draws to a close, at least some of the residents seem to be having a good time! It's stag and hen time for Alfie and Roxy, and the girls are definitely getting into the spirit of things!

Diane Parish, Rita Simons, Samantha Womack, Kate Magowan and Rachel Bright

As Alfie's stags raise a toast to him and Roxy, its seems that Alfie might have another lady on his mind...

There's a lot going on... make sure to tune in!

    I think Lauren is going to be upset because she finds out that Jake is married to Sadie from Beauty!!?? This is not confirmed!! It's just a guess. These are my reasons why. 1.) Jake's reaction on tonight's episode when Lauren said Albert Square. 2.) Jake said in an earlier episode that he ruined his relationship with his wife because he spent most of their money drinking and it says in Sadie's character description that she had to downscale her businesses because of financial problems. 3.) We haven't met Sadie's husband yet. 4.) Jake seems to have a secret which I am guessing is that his "ex"-wife isn't really an "ex" at all. Would like to know other people's views before "Jake's secret is revealed" which i read about in tomorrows episode description. Also think Lauren is not going to be happy when she finds out because it will mean Jake is the thing she hates the most - A Cheater (because of Maxs' many affairs)

    Joey and Janine? I know he's shagged all of Lauren's friends so I guess he's moving on, I find Janine a little old for Joey, never a fan of Joey's, Laure 's rehab laughable, I would love to see Alfie running an antique shop, auction, etc. I am not a fan of Shirley's, Phil needs someone in his life and Sharon's return has been awful.

    -Laurens drinking storyline is BORING
    -The answer to where Shirley has been is DISSAPOINTING
    -Joey and Janine's relationship is POINTLESS but when Dominic takes Eastenders over, hopefully he can make storylines worth doing. Maybe it will be involved in Joeys exit at Christmas
    ...on the other hand I think Tina will be a really good character

    well I love eastenders and maybe you could tone the drama down a bit are u stupid
    people are telling u things to make the show better so get peoples ideas and make peoples ideas into a story line so then people will watch it. and Charlie brooks is a quitter ust because eastenders is losing reviews don't mean she needs to quit

    I agree its gone a bit downhill of late. I mean, Carl? What a pantomime villain if ever there was one! Where did he come from? So boring (never mind the storylines!). And as for Dexter's Dad - perrrlease - I've seen better acting from Mr Ben! No! Come on EE - you need to be sorting it out. Now that Michael's gone (I was always chuckling at his wicked one liners!), he just made me laugh until he too got too nutty in the end. But he was good! So come on EE! Get back in there and get some quality actors - get someone to write some decent storylines! Sorted! What's the problem??

    Brilliant, shirley's back missed her so much. Only one of the few characters I like anymore. Eastenders let me give you a bit of advice, watch emmerdale and you will see real acting and real storylines because the ones you've got a crap and that's why no one wants to watch it anymore and I used to love Eastenders but bow emmerdale is toping the chart for me with the murder and the siege and charity and Cain's scam for money with the cars. Get back to the old eastender we all know and love because you are going down the drain and when did Alfie become mates wit AJ masood and Terry he barley know them?

    I hate the storyline with Joey and Janine, it`s too silly! it is too silly! I also dislike that Lauren and Jake continue next year, they do not fit together. No chemistry, the only thing they have in common are alcohol problems. Lauren should be without a boyfriend until she gets her life on track. She and Joey matched so perfect together, loved watching them. But it has become so ruined by such bad writing in EE. And we do not even get any Jauren moments before Joey (David W) leaves, but instead Joey and Janine. Hate it, would not be surprised if they go together (Joey and Janine).
    And Shirley did not have to come back, do not like her. But doesn`t matter now, I will not watch EE more after Christmas.
