Gray panics as the net closes in on him next week on EastEnders, while Mick tries to move on from Linda and sparks fly between Kheerat and Stacey.
Here’s a complete list of the 17 most important events coming up:
1. Tina’s body is dug up?
When Gray sees a cordoned-off Argee Bhajee in the aftermath of the gas explosion, he panics, seemingly confirming a popular fan theory.
When Eve sees Gray, he tells her it’s a big day at the hospital because he’ll be able to hold Jordan for the first time. Gray then returns to the Argee Bhajee under the guise of an insurance broker who needs to ‘assess’ the damage.
Gray is terrified that Tina’s body is about to be discovered when the builder explains that it all has to be stripped…
2. Gray continues to abuse Chelsea
Whitney overhears Chelsea expressing her dissatisfaction with Gray’s failure to return her calls. Denise interrogates her daughter about taking her medication, and Chelsea rips up her prescription, escalating the situation.
Chelsea is overcome with emotion as she holds Jordan for the first time after Gray fails to arrive at the hospital on time. She is overjoyed and tries to show Gray the pictures later, but he becomes hostile to her once more. He accuses Chelsea of bragging and cruelly berates her for lying about having to work.
3. Whitney reports Gray to the police
Chelsea is shaken by her latest altercation with Gray, and Whitney is concerned for her safety. Whitney, fearful for Chelsea, makes a life-changing decision: she goes to the police station and informs them that Gray murdered Chantelle.
Whitney tells everything to DCI Arthurs and is relieved when the cops insist on assisting Chelsea if she is in danger. Is Gray’s net finally closing in?

Honey’s ex-husband Billy is taken aback by her new position as market inspector.
As the traders mock Billy, Honey sternly warns him that there will be no favorites under her watch. Jean, on the other hand, misses the memo….

Jean approaches Phil for business advice, but he dismisses her and jokes that she should use bribery.
Jean approaches Honey, determined to assist Stacey, and offers her a cake in exchange for giving Stacey a good spot on the market.

Zack leaves a message for Jada, requesting that she call him back. Before heading off to meet Alyssa and Jada, he tells a dismissive Sharon that he has found them.

Later, a disappointed Mick explains that Linda did not show up, and Janine advises him to move on.

10. Gray makes an exit plan
Gray’s future is in jeopardy as the net continues to close in on him next week.

When DCI Arthurs approaches Gray, the pressure mounts, but is the game finally over?
11. Stacey launches her new venture
With the help of Jean and Eve, Stacey launches her new business. She has a long line of customers waiting for her, including Kheerat, much to her delight.
Unfortunately, Kheerat contracts food poisoning from Stacey’s food van, and her success may be short-lived. In front of Stacey’s large queue, Suki wastes no time in informing everyone about Kheerat’s food poisoning. Are Stacey’s dreams coming to an end before they even start?
12. Stacey and Kheerat grow closer
Stacey visits Kheerat to apologize after learning that he’s been taken ill after sharing some lingering looks out on the market.
When Ben later tells Stacey that someone paid the difference for her van’s repairs, she realizes it was Kheerat, and she is moved.
She pays him a visit to express her gratitude, and they share a brief moment before Vinny interrupts. Later, Kheerat pays a visit to Stacey and gives her a kiss on the cheek, making her smitten. Is this the beginning of a romance between them?

Janine tries in vain to persuade Mick not to date again as he prepares for his night out.
