Following the footsteps of the recently deceased Mike Reid (aka Frank Butcher) Bobby Davro becomes the latest comedian to join the EastEnders ranks, making his first appearance as Vince. His debut almost ends in disaster, however, as he nearly knocks Shirley over on her way to court.
After this initial hiccup, however, Vince does his best to schmooze Shirley by working her shift for her at the Vic.
It’s the day of Chelsea and Deano’s court case and their futures hang in the balance. Things are tense at the Wicks/Fox household – not helped when Deano goes missing. Chelsea is furious, fearing he has run out on her and that it could jeopardise the outcome of her trial.
Meanwhile, the Wicks have the dinner party from hell when Kevin asks the Masoods over, and Jane panics when she wakes up during the night and discovers Lucy has gone.
