Picture gallery: w/c 1 August 2010

Rob Francis | 00:00 UK time, Tuesday, 27 July 2010

It's Peggy, Peggy, Peggy, as family matters for the the Mitchell matriarch dominates our preview gallery.

Making a splash!

Pat and Peggy uncork some anarchy. But why do they appear to be seeing red (or is it rosé?) and trashing the Vic?


Get out of my...

You know the rest. Peggy makes a point, but Roxy's mind is made up. What has she decided about the future of the Vic?


Military matters

Looks like Carol's giving some their marching orders down at the recruitement office - but will end up sleeping with the enemy in her bid to find out what's happened to Billy?


Aunt we related?

Abi and Lorraine are reunited, messing with Max in the process. But will Lorraine find an ally in her niece?


Tug of love

Another family reunion, as Lisa and Louise get together under the watchful eye of Peggy. But will this gran gesture backfire on the Mitchells? 


Punch line?

Well, clearly this isn't the happiest of reunions, as Peggy wipes the smile off Lisa's face with an impressive right hook. But will Phil's ex have the last laugh?


Blame and bouquets

Peggy tries to reason with Phil, but he's clearly bottling up his anger. We don't think those flowers are helping the situation, even if Shirley's clearly got her eye on them.


Sobering thoughts

Looks like Phil has had his fill. As we all know, when that happens, thing tend to end badly. Let's hope that Peggy's got his measure - and that it isn't a measure of whiskey...

    this doesnt look like the best week. there is too many weeks with the mitchells. we need more of abbie and darren and jodie. its so funny when darren can't read the signs that abbie fancies him. we also need more chryed they are hilarious!

  • Comment number 2.

    I dont think it will be a great week especially cos Lisa's back I wonder if Lisa will take Louise.. Will just have to seee... I'm just wondering is Denise gonna get out from the basement

  • Comment number 3.

    I totally agree with the first comment. Week in, week out we are subjected to miserable old Phil Mitchell and the rest of the depressive Mitchell clan (bore, snore). Now they've resurrected Lisa who for me was one of the most boring characters ever to grace the show!!! And i can't imagine anything more unpleasant to watch than Phil on crack! Oh my Lord, surely we deserve something nicer on the eye!

    The Lucas thing has been quite compelling but enough already! It's just been dragged out too long and the whole family need to move on.

    PLEASE PLEASE EE give us more Chryed, romantic, funny, sad, entertaining, angsty, sexy, hot, brilliant and totally watchable SYED AND CHRISTIAN!

    Also love the Masoods, especially Tamwar.

    this should be interesting nextweek :D x

  • Comment number 6.

    I agree with Kimem - surely the focus should now be on Denise trying to escape this 'prison of her own making,' rather than another week of the Mitchells? I'm interested in Ronnie's storyline but apart from that, the huge amount of blowouts that family has just mean the audience won't take them seriously anymore.

    That said, Lucas' storyline is brilliant - I can't wait to see what happens next. Glad to see Chyred back on our screens aswell; just another one of Eastenders' many fantastic plots!

  • Comment number 7.

    Where's Chryed?????????????????????????????????????? :(

  • Comment number 8.

  • Comment number 10.

    Thursday's eastenders is going to be really good. Denise escapes and goes back. xx

  • Comment number 11.

    ooh exciting!!! i luved 2days episode

  • Comment number 12.

    Abbi grew up suddenly from annoying lil girl who was obsessed with Marge the hamsta and gilberrt the chinchilla to fancying darren. I swear she likes him just cause he sed hed be her best friend if she gave him a sandwich lol..
    As for Ryan and Janine getting engaged nxt week..well wht can i say. I liked ryan and Janine (in her own way) but now they are just ridiculous. c'mon that betting business was pathetic

  • Comment number 13.

    The story line between Lucas and Denise is fantastic what a twist in the story i thought last Friday was one of the best endings ive seen in years totally unexpected brilliant

  • Comment number 14.

    OMG peggy and pat together- lisa and her daughter are so cute together

  • Comment number 15.

    i think there is loads of drama it is gettin a lil bit borin but i think nobody shuld really say anything wots gonna happen becuz its ruining it

  • Comment number 16.

    Please give us more CHRYED!!! They are very funny, beautiful and possibly the cutest couple on the square at the moment. I think a Civil Partnership is in order. :)

  • Comment number 17.

    I am really hooked on the current denise and lucas story

  • Comment number 18.

    could someone kindly fill me in on what has happened the past week in eastenders?! im on holiday and the last one i saw was last tues! i will miss 2 weeks...the horror! i just want to know about denise...is she not dead?!? thanks

  • Comment number 19.

    Personally I don't think thers's too much Mitchells. I like Eastenders the way it is. And that Lisa is back could mean another compelling storyline. I can remember that, a couple of years ago, there was a soccermatch and that match started half an hour later than originally was planned because everyone in the UK didn't want to miss the Eastenders-episode wherein was revealed who shot Phill Mitchell.wonderfull!
    They even showed a few scenes from Eastenders on Dutch television in Studio Sport, a sportprogramm.
    Who knows what Lisa's return holds in store!

  • Comment number 20.

    lisa has returned!!!!!!!!!!! looks like next week will be cool!!!!!

  • Comment number 21.

    eastenders doesn't revolve around christian and syed,its good that they might not be in it,concentrating on bigger and better characters and bringing back lisa is brilliant!!

  • Comment number 22.

    I think denise is a great actress cant wait to see what happens next after she walks into her home x

  • Comment number 23.

    Yesssssss Lisas Back is there going to be anymore episodes about the archie and ronnies thing ??

  • Comment number 24.

    well denise did get out but i think lucas will do something about her just walking out the cellar and i cant believe it was just next door why didnt she just scream they would have heard her :-\ anyway ... does anyone know any sites you can watch the full next preview if you do reply please X

  • Comment number 25.

    LISA IS BACK!!pat and peggy are wasting wine!! that's not good.

  • Comment number 26.

    Looks an okayy week.

  • Comment number 27.


  • Comment number 28.

    WE LOVE THE MASOODS, Especially the gay one. CHRYED!

  • Comment number 29.

    Well I think this looks like a fantastic week, potentially classic EastEnders with the drama of the Lucas storyline, Lisa's return, Peggy and Pat having some fun and Tanya's sister Lorraine returning should be brilliant.

    No offence to anyone but Christian and Syed are just two characters with one storyline that seems to have ended with the finally getting together. The Mitchell's on the other hand are a major family with numerous storylines and a twenty year history on the show.

  • Comment number 30.

    I want to see more storylines on thr ronnie archie thing

  • Comment number 31.

    I agree it feels like we OD on the Mitchells sometimes but I've found a Stenders antidote...
    Eastenders - everythings going fine but you know it will all end in tears and it will probably be grey and raining.
    Neighbours - everythings in a mess but you know it will turn out all right and there'll be plenty of sun!!!
    LOL - Love them both :-)

  • Comment number 32.

    I think this week is a bit boring . Maybe there can be some more lucas and darren . Atually Mitchells are the most boring now . So really i dont care about the mitchells more lucas .

  • Comment number 33.

    Heh gavsbird, so true!

    Meanwhile, "I swear she likes him just cause he sed hed be her best friend if she gave him a sandwich." Heh, Pilky! I like the all new Darren-lovin, love horoscope reading, Abi

  • Comment number 34.

    hello x eastenders ppl wen im older i would just luv it if i was an actress in the show lol :) it would b great so anyway i really think eastenders is getting beter and woahh look at that slap lolz but i think eastenders should be a bit scaryer and funny thx bye x

  • Comment number 35.

    Mitchells are incredibly boring. The Ronnie/father abuse story is so dull - i guessed he was the father of her daughter a year back - this has surfaced far too late when two of the key character's are dead. I simply record on my skyplus and fast forward the mitchell blonde saga.

  • Comment number 36.

    Can't wait to tonights ep!!! Denise is finally out I belived it I even Knew that she will be out on Libby's cos she missed her..

  • Comment number 37.

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhh i wonder wat happened 2 billy boy sounds intresting lol :P

  • Comment number 38.

    Where are Chryed and Tam ? , they were off screen for 2 months and back for 2 weeks and gone again.

  • Comment number 39.

    @Nargis... Archie wasn't Danielle's father. Joel was.

  • Comment number 40.

    OMG Lisa's back i hope this does not risk Lousie and Phils relation ship. Lisa deserved that slap i am going to mis Peggys slaps. What happened to animal loving abi. Did Lorraine not get called Rainy Cross or something when she visited Tanya a few years ago. I have had enough of the Mitchells it's them week in wekk out. I want more on Fatboy and Denise and Darren, Abi and Jodie that story lines funny, maybe some more and Chryed.

  • Comment number 41.

    What are people expecting from more Chryed!? They only have one story and that is finished now they are happily together.
    I thought Lucas was gonna leave with more of a 'bang'. ok, his last act was really exciting but i thought he was gonna lunge at denise or summit and chelsea or libby wud dive in the way DUFF DUFF

  • Comment number 42.

    Haha!Does anyone else think Peggy needs to cop-on? I mean, just because once upon a time she was "queen of the vic" doesn't make it hers!! She should be way more grateful to Roxy for letting her live there. And WHAT is going on with Abbey?! One minute she's all lovey-dovey with Jordan and one-sandwhich-giving minute later she's stalking Darren in an effort to make him fall in love with her (soz abs, its nahgunnahappen)..isn't he just a tad bit too old for her..and doesn't he have a girlfriend? Those Brannings always want what they cant have..
    I'm really not bothered with the whole Louise situation. PLEASE don't let it be one of those storylines that drags on...and on...and on. Speaking of which, thank goodness Lucas was arrested. Now everyone can go back to playing happy families (as if!)
    As for Chryed, their a nice, funny change from all the doom and gloom in EE...but do you really think that they will have a happy ending........?

  • Comment number 43.

    this seems quite interesting. i

  • Comment number 44.

    my last comment got cut off. anyway, i think this will be a good week. but i think the lucas and denise thing is dragging a bit now that she's out. i want to see more of the abi, darren and Jodie story line. it's been my favorite this year i think.

  • Comment number 45.

    Not fair in 2 weeks im going on holiday all week! :( Hope I will be able to watch it on bbciplayer

  • Comment number 46.

    It seams like we are getting closer to the vic burning down no? doesnt lisa burn it down?.
    I really cant wait cos then its the return of kat and alfie!:D

  • Comment number 47.

    Can't wait for 2mrw i cnt live without EastEnders x

  • Comment number 48.

    I don't think the Chryed storyline is over yet by a long shot, I also don't think it will have a happy ending! I wish they did, but its Walford and their really aren't many happy endings..............

  • Comment number 49.

    I think eastenders is the best show that ever aired on tv, because it has so much storylines that explod your mind, and all the murders ana evil evil villans. Also i think this week will be good. luv enders cant live without it. enders forever. ox ox.

  • Comment number 50.

    I think this week looks like a good week, also peggy shouldnt be messing up the pub. she needs to understand its not her pub any more, its roxys! EASTENDERS IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant live without it. GO ENDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OX OX.

  • Comment number 51.

    Peggy: Lou darling why don't you go inside you'r mum will join you in a minute.
    Lou: Okay
    Lisa: Peggy I don't know what to say....Thank you!!
    Peggy: *SLAP!*

  • Comment number 52.

    I know a great idea to make sure nobody buys the pub pu t Jedward in there!xxxxxx

  • Comment number 53.

    with so many leaked story lines, it makes viewing slightly boring because everyone knows what is going to happen. With chyred, to the mitchells and Denise and lucas it is slightly boring. Please eastenders give us more storylines which are more interesting and havent dragged for what seems like all our lives...

  • Comment number 54.

    Where's Chreyd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Comment number 55.



    so then Peggy escapes.......

  • Comment number 56.

    Could not Grant turn up again unexpectedly to make things even more

    interesting...... having heard about events....

  • Comment number 57.

    I think the police should somehow look at the bust of Queen Victoria and

    how Archie was killed - ...........

  • Comment number 58.

    The thing about the flowerz iz that why r they so hyped up and shouting all about a bunch of flowerz.....i don't get it!? THERE FLOWERZ!!!! Anyway i want more Chryed and more fatboy caring 4 dot and jim and more leon and zsa zsa. Plz eastenderz writerz hear me out plz sophiexxxxx

  • Comment number 59.

    Abi, who is 14 is suddenly irratating. Even though she is a teenager, she knows that Darren doesn't have feelings for her. The more she sees Darren, the more irratating she gets. And as for Peggy, she takes a lot of risks. Louise is better with Phil and Shirley. Even Zsa Zsa is better a person than Lisa Fowler. EastEnders being the first time, have leaked all their storylines meaning we know what will happen and when we watch it, it isn't interesting anymore. I'm finding EastEnders a bit boring than before. The characters are fine, it's the crew that leak the storylines that make it boring.
