Everyone's giving everyone else comfort, advice... or just a piece of their mind in Walford this week!

Who's the Daddy?

Jack and Ricky go head-to-head when they realise they could be the father of Sam's baby. But she's got a bigger surprise in store...

The Gloves Are Off

Becca comes between Jean and Stacey in a last ditch attempt to secure alpha woman status over the household. It seems Lily's acting more mature than Becca.

Bridezilla

Janine and Pat argue it out over the wedding plans. Surprisingly enough, it's Pat's savvy fashion sense that unites the pair. Let's hope it's not a leopard print chiffon wedding dress.

High Hopes

Lewis attempts to be an ideal man by talking to Liam about school. We all love a man who's not afraid to show his softer side, but is he The One for Carol?

Material Girl

Ian and Jane fight a marital war over their financial situation. Didn't anyone ever tell them that money can't buy you love?

Lean on Pat

The Mitchells are falling apart, so Pat attempts to get Peggy back on track. We're more concerned for the well being of their matching luminous jackets.

    I really don't like becca
    oh well

  • Comment number 2.

    Is Becca leaving? I want to know Sam's surprise!

  • Comment number 3.

    Poor Jane! She deserves so much better! :-(

  • Comment number 4.

    Peggy's last moments in the square :-( gd luck in the future Barbara xx

  • Comment number 5.

    Im really confused, how on earth can Sam keep her perfectly manicured nails when she is in prison

  • Comment number 6.

    Jane: needs to dump Ian, she is way too good for him
    Becca: now she is a strange one, and i think is gonna come completly unhinged
    Peggy: Needs to leave em all to it and move in with Grant.
    Im gonna really miss Peggy, and i wish Barbra Windsor lots of luck and happiness for the future, I love this lady and everyhing she has done.

  • Comment number 7.

    I think Sam's surprise will be that Archie is the father, thereby causing some inheritance issues into play. I wondered about having french manicures while in prison as well. Odd they don't offer manicures in the nick here in the states. And I hope Jane gives Ian and Miss Lucy a new way of life after all that family has put her through. Thanks so much for the newsletter and the week forward photos and hints of what is to come. I can't watch the show now that I am back home in the states, except years old episodes on public television late on Saturday and Sunday. BBC America used to have the week's episodes on Saturday mornings, but discontinued that many years ago and I got very addicted to EE when I lived in Scotland for a bit. Now I have gotten my husband addicted watching the years old episodes. We are now up to right before Kat and Alfie become and item and Janine and Barry are just starting to get ooh so cozy together. If the poor sap only knew what was to come from Janine. Love you EE!!!!

    I Think that eastenders rocks I love peggy and i love cheese!

  • Comment number 9.

    bye peg, i'll miss u
    :(

  • Comment number 10.

    think ricky is the more likely father of dem 2 .i think sams surprise is that none of dem is d father

  • Comment number 11.

    2 emily: why did u put "i love cheese!"?
    i luv EE!

  • Comment number 12.

    I know what Sam's surprise is

  • Comment number 13.

    I hope Stacey finds out that Becca is responsible for Bradley's death, then they have a fight and one of them pushes the other one off a bridge :)

  • Comment number 14.

    I wonder if Sam's surprise is that Jack is the father and she gives her baby away to Ronnie. Now that would make her happy. Kinda after all she wants to be a mum........

  • Comment number 15.

    I don't really like Becca. I think Ricky's the dad.

  • Comment number 16.

    I think the surprise is that Sam will want the baby adopted. I can't think that she'll want to keep it. Maybe Peggy will adopt it though?

  • Comment number 18.

    please bring back grant ...he can sort out this phil mess for sure ..and plus think we need a bit of mature eye candy

  • Comment number 19.

    can i also just say how brillant phils acting has been through his latest storylines....very realistic..im not often impressed but have been alot at the moment

  • Comment number 20.

    I know Jane deserves better, but it won't be the same with her being part of Ian's family. Plus, she couldn't leave Bobby & Peter; it was only Lucy an Ian that have ever messed her about. I hope the story line's well thought out for this one. (yn)
    Becca. Well, she's not been around so long, so personally I don't care too much about her. I wouldn't be sad to see her go.
    PEGGY! I found out earlier in the year that she was leaving, and I must say I was gutted. It'll be said to see her go. I know the Queen Vic to be Peggy's, and Peggy's only.
    I'm happy that Janine's getting married. She's not always the heartless woman that everyone in the square, and she loves Ryan.
    I think that Bianca also needs Rickey. They're lovely, and although Bianca isn't the nicest to him that she can be, they deserve each other. So I hope Sam's baby is Jack's, because it could be good for Ronnie too. She wants a kid, and if the baby is Jack's, she would probably get to look after it too.
    I can't wait to watch 'Enders next week! :D

  • Comment number 21.

    Oh dear. I'm here in the USA, in northern Pennsylvania and we get Eastenders on PBS on Sunday nights for an hour. Our story line is soooo far behind what is currently on in the UK. We are where Ian has no idea that the baby boy (Bobby) Laura had is really his baby, Pauline is stressed out about Martin (he is growing marijuana) , Dot has quit the laundromat once again, etc....I can't believe that there are such new story lines now with characters I've never seen...I've loved Eastenders since it first came on here in 1988...
    anybody care to briefly tell me what happens to Pauline, Sonja or Kat and Alfie? These last 2 are favs of mine..such a good job on the show.
    Thanks for listening to me go on and on...

  • Comment number 22.

    i really like stacey she is my favourite out of the cast !!! i dont really like becca,i hope stace and her mum get a REALLY GOOD SEND OFF

  • Comment number 23.

    Oh pattilg, I hate to ruin the fun of the upcoming episodes!!! Kat and Alfie are coming back this fall or winter I think....and I love them together also. I am in NC and get to watch on PBS. So glad to know there is a kindred spirit here in the states!!!!

  • Comment number 24.

    I hope sam has a good surprise,
    I hope its something really good like shes dead.
    That would be the most useful thing she has ever done.


    P.S
    I have nothing against the actress,
    its just the charater.

  • Comment number 25.

    EEK! i wonder what sams suprise is i know it will be somet to cause drama!! im soo happy janine is getting married i wonder what her wedding will be like. becca, well im not too keen on her so i wouldnt mind if she disappeared. also i think jane shouldnt be treated like that what has she done wrong. lucy always does somet to upset her if she kept the baby an didnt cheat then maybe just maybe jane would be HAPPY. i wonder whats wrong with peggy i think grant should pack and he should take her to go and live with them for EVER!!!-_- :) :D

  • Comment number 26.

    I think Peggy might die in the vic, by it falling down or something, and I hear Kat and Alfie are coming back. maybe to sort it out... I'm sorry if that's right

  • Comment number 27.

    sams surprise is going to be that she is putting the baby up for adoption!

  • Comment number 28.

    looks like a good week again pat needs to sort jainie out i have just read in the paper that ryan and jainie take baby lilly for a ride in the car and try to sell the car with her in can not wait to see what happens xx

  • Comment number 29.

    I can't help thinking that Peggy might end up being killed in the Queen Vic Fire. Just a thought.

    Also I wonder what will happen to Becca when the truth about her part in Bradley's death comes out. Not only will Stacey be baying for her blood but so will the entire Branning family. I would not want to be in her shoes.

  • Comment number 30.

    to pattilg-

    well pauline is not in it any longer she dies on x-mas day under the x-mas tree in the square.

    Kat and alfie have left and got married but theyare coming back this year

    And sonia has left

    But apart from that it looks like a great week coming up, but i do need to catch up on the episoads as have missed last weeks :(

  • Comment number 36.

    I must have misseed something in an earlier episode, what part does Becca have in Bradleys death, it doesnt surprise me mind, she is odd and was very jelous of her relationship woth Stacey.

    OH!! how brilliant that Heather and Minty have finally and properly got together at last. They are just so ment for each other and Heather is just so lovely she deserves happiness.x

  • Comment number 37.

    OMG WATCHING MINTY AND HEV SNOG WAS NOT PRETTY

    THE NARLING THE SHEER HORROR

    IT PUT ME OFF MY CHOCOLATES - THAT IS NOT GOOD

    IT TAKES A LOT TO DO THAT

  • Comment number 38.

    i dont think that sam's shock is that Archie is the father, because ronnie told stacey that he was infertile and stacey got pregnant before sam.

  • Comment number 39.

    becca is evil

  • Comment number 40.

    sam's surprise is that she puts her baby up for abortion !

  • Comment number 41.

    sam's surprise is that she puts her baby up for adoption and the whole thing with becca is that becca phoned the police on bradley and told them that it was him that killed archie!
    and becca throws bradleys ashes all over stacey! and she also hits stacey :( poor stacey she's great actress and character

    betteboop67!!!! If you contact me i'll tell you how to watch Eastenders in the States, I have lived here for 3 years and never missed an episode.

  • Comment number 47.

    LOL...I too watched Minty and Heather snog and it was a rather strange sensation to feel great happiness for them both and gag on my pizza at the same time. I'm so happy that they are together but has anyone else ever considered Heather and Billy?

    I'm not to keen on Becca..Especially as she was responsible for calling the police on Bradley..(i was smitten about him) i have nothing but hatred towards Becca now (getting angry thinkin gbout it lol)
    However im dreading Stacey leaving she is one of my favourite characters..I named my baby Lacey after her! and then was delighted when she named her baby Lilly which is my other childs name!
    I really hope Ryan finds out he is baby Lilly's father i think him and Stacey would make an excellent couple.

    Woo cant wait to see Kat and Alfie they ROCK!!

  • Comment number 48.

    Nice to see the Becca thing coming to a head, looking forward to seeing what happens with Peggy as well - although 'enders will never be the same without her. I wanna see Grant back for her exit...would be great timing for his return with everything kicking off at the Beales too, bet Jane would be glad to see an old 'friend' ;-)
    Not sure about the Alfie and Kat coming back though, something about revisiting past glories, it doesn't often work...to be honest Sam does my head in! lol
    Plus with all that there's Christian and Syed to lighten the mood, seriously could those guys get anymore adorable?! Talk about sizzling chemistry!!

  • Comment number 49.

    Bye Bye Barbara all the best for the future xxx

  • Comment number 50.

    oh i love ronnie an jack..going to miss peggy a lot!
    please follow my twitter page about Eastenders
    it is called OMGEastenders and has the latest gossip and opinions.
    i love eastenders!

  • Comment number 51.

    I hate Becca. She's the 1 responsible 4 poor Bradley's death. I hope the truth comes out soon & I want Becca 2 die. I wish Peggy didn't hav 2 leave, it won't b the same without her...

  • Comment number 52.


    You know, I always say I want to be a Mitchell for the day, now Im not too sure to be honest. I'll probably end up raped by my own father, on drugs with a Mum like Peggy (awful thought), I think Beales are the way forward, even although Jane got shot at by her nearly step-son, Lucy aborted her kid that was going to give to Jane with her Dad & brother covering it up, and cheated on her exams. Beales seem a nice family.

  • Comment number 53.

    I think Jack is the Father of Sam's baby because he is getting married to Ronnie and it would stir things up for the Mitchells again family fued. Once again a great week well done.

  • Comment number 54.

    I blame 3 people for Bradley's death: Becca, Jack and Max.
    Becca because she went and called the fuzz
    Jack and Max cause had they just left him hed be fine but they got him so mixed up and pressaurised him he probably felt guilty inside.

  • Comment number 55.

    sam's surprise is that jack's the dad so ronnie kills him and then she hides his body under the vic and then she found out that he was not the dad and it was ricky (my guess)

  • Comment number 56.

    Really not liking Vanessa atm..

  • Comment number 57.

    i really hate becca...i wish she would just leave the slaters alone...in my opinion its her fault bradley died because she called the police sayin it was him and if she hadnt he would never of had to go up on that roof!!!

  • Comment number 58.

    To anyone fans living in the USA. Look on You Tube, they post the latest episodes shortly after they are aired, if your lucky the next day. You can also watch Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and probably more.

  • Comment number 74.

    i hate Becca shes twisting everything round so it somebody's else s fault i hope she gets found out for killing bradders!!!

  • Comment number 75.

    I feel sorry for Jane having to still put up with Ian. Jane deserves so much better than Ian.
    Becca is too obsessed with Stacey and she needs to let other people be more involved in Stacey's life.
    Carol should just give Lewis a chance.
    Poor Jane....She still might get back with Ian though even though he lied to her.

  • Comment number 76.

    what is becca up to she needs to go back into that clinic..... if i were in east enders i would slap her!!! i think that archie might be the farther of sams baby and thats why the michels are falling apart because he raped two people in the family...... ok we all know that jane deserves better but she has responsiblitys as a parent to peter,lucy and bobby.... they need a mum and she shouldnt steel either....

  • Comment number 77.

    Archie is the Father as it says' in todays Soap magazine and what will happen in the fire is Ryan and Janine leave there wedding ring in the Vic after everyone leaves, Ryan goes in to get it and he hears a baby crying which is Stacey Slaters baby, he gets them both out of the fire and gets out. The reason the fire was started was becuase of Phil.

  • Comment number 78.

    it says that Janine trys 2 bribe Ryan's mum Debra into not coming 2 the wedding!!!

    ;-)

  • Comment number 79.

  • Comment number 87.

    I so want Simone James' phone number, she is hott just now.

  • Comment number 88.

    poor becca NOT

  • Comment number 89.

    What's wrong with Carol? She treated Lewis so badly from date one, it's a surprise that he's persisted. And that sexist comment she made "all men are gits" when Bianca told her that Rickey was actually at the hospital with Sam.... just because Lewis hadn't turned up to see her.

    And why is she being so horrible about Ricky these days - only the other week she thought Bianca was cheating on him. Ricky deserves better than Bianca. It's pathetic how she treats him.

  • Comment number 90.

    Jane should run off with Ricky - they both have spouses they don't deserve. They both deserve better and are both reallynice so would be good together.

    Minty and Heather - I hope this one works out good. I did actually consider Billy and Heather but I think Billy just doesn't fancy her. Just because two people seem sweet it is not enough, physical attraction counts too and quite honestly I don't think Billy and Heather would look good together. Plus, those of you saying that Minty and Heather's snog put you off your food etc are being mean and shallow.

  • Comment number 91.

    I hope Amira comes back after the baby is born - perhaps she could be the Christmas day surprise? Maybe she will have twins - a boy and a girl. Didn't she want to call a boy Tom and a girl Masey?

    On another note, if anyone said that Christian and Syed's snog put them off their food then they would be accused of being anti gay but people have said similar about Minty and Heather's snog (just because they are fat) and no one complains.

  • Comment number 92.

    for thoes that dont know Sam is pregnant , and The daddy could be Rikky or Minty

  • Comment number 93.

    SAMS baby could be JACKS TOO ,,, they get around dont they ,,,,i love Eastenders so much
