In new EastEnders scenes, Kim Fox is set to receive a surprise offer as Howie returns to the fold.
Fans will recall that Howie assumed the identity of Kim’s late husband Vincent Hubbard after he vanished and was killed by Aidan Maguire’s men a few years ago.
During the Christmas season, Howie dressed up as Santa and offered her gifts for her children, but Kim scolded him and turned down his offer of “blood money.”
However, when Howie learned that Kim was planning to leave, she informed her sister Denise, who rushed with Jack to find Kim and persuade her to stay.
Jack and Howie stepped up to say they would go to the station to make a report, despite her despair that she couldn’t stay around while Vincent’s killer walked free.
Kim is shocked when she receives her daughter Pearl’s school fee bill in new scenes set to air next week, and she is driven to find more money to pay it off.
When she meets her makeover client at the salon, she realizes it’s none other than Howie, and she tells him about her worries later at the Queen Vic.
Howie then makes Kim an offer, revealing that he is currently working for a local business, promoting a product online – though she is taken aback when she learns what it is.
Will she accept the job, and what could the product be?
