After just a few months of dating on EastEnders, Jean Slater and Harvey Monroe’s relationship has taken a turn for the better and it looks like they’re headed for marriage.
For the first time since the death of Daniel Cook, Jean (Gillian Wright) in EastEnders has put herself first by pursuing Harvey (Ross Boatman) (Adrian Edmondson). There has been some criticism from Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), the matriarch’s daughter. But it is evident that she wants to savor the moment with her man. In addition, his son, Aaron Monroe (Charlie Wernham), stays in prison after being charged with terrorist crimes. However, But could these difficulties mean that the two will be forced to leave the BBC soap opera?
Jean knows her lover has a lot on his mind when the weeknight series begins next week.
The father of two is reluctant to sign a witness statement after turning up his son to police earlier this year.
This could assist convict his son of the crimes for which he has been accused, and he could spend the rest of his life in prison as a result.
The two of them plan to take a trip out of town to get away from the stress of Walford life for a few days.
When the taxi cab driver says he wants to calm things down, she doesn’t get the response she was hoping for.
A call from his son convinces Harvey not to sign the witness statement, as Jean continues to plot her getaway from the Square.
Her father, Dana Monroe (Barbara Smith), has asked his girlfriend if they can slow things down, and Dana is surprised to hear it.
Dana tells the Slater matriarch what’s going on with her father since she doesn’t want Aaron to damage their connection.
Jean wants to be more supportive than ever, so she sets out on a mission to help as many people as she can.
Later, the father of two can be seen coming to the police station to sign the statement, but it isn’t yet clear if he will follow through with it.
Whatever the outcome, you can bet Harvey will be drinking away his sorrows in his cab, as it’s obvious he’s upset about his decision.
Jean is there to offer support and advice, and upon seeing him in such a state, she suggests he walk home rather than drive.
After being seen together by a cop, Jean thinks quickly to keep her partner out of danger.
His confidence is restored, and Jean responds by saying she wants to go on a vacation with him.
She jumps in to say she’s still worried about her mom’s relationship and advises them to hold off on leaving for a while.
As Jean and Harvey prepare to depart Walford, it appears that Jean’s efforts will be in vain, but will they follow through?
As a result of Jean’s late partner’s efforts to bring the character out of her shell, she has a new outlook on her relationships now.
It has previously been revealed that the actress who portrays Jean, Gillian, has spoken out about what Daniel has done for her alter-ego.
Gillian explained: “I think that she’s become stronger through dealing with cancer.
“She’s become less timid and less scared, compared with how she was when we first met her in the early years. She has more courage.”
“I loved doing the storyline [with Daniel] because even though it was a story that was sad, and it could have been doom and gloom, we actually had a lot of fun,” she told Inside Soap.
“I think that the relationship with Daniel made Jean more feisty, and more confident. Even if she’s wrong, she does it with confidence.”
Even when she has left the Square to pursue a new romance, things haven’t always been smooth for Jean.
Her relationship with Ollie Walters (Tony O’Callaghan) terminated in 2018 after she left Walford in 2013.

“Stacey can’t handle anyone else but her being happy – you tell her Jean! #EastEnders,” Daniel shared.
