Here’s everything you need to know about what’s ahead in next week’s soaps.
Chantelle plans to escape via a family holiday with the Taylors. However, Gray ends up tagging along, and he later persuades Chantelle to return home with him. They set off — but as they do so, Mitchell detects a flicker of fear in Chantelle’s face.
The couple return to Walford, and Chantelle finds the courage to tell Gray that she is leaving him once and for all, but she’s unaware that things are about to get a whole lot worse — and ultimately have tragic consequences for her.
Ben informs Jay (Jamie Borthwick) that he’s got a plan to set up Danny. As they prepare for Stuart’s stag do, Ben tells Callum about Danny, and — afterwards — Callum wonders if the offer to move in is still on the table. Unfortunately, the couple’s happiness is short-lived.
Ray tells David that he and Shona are welcome to stay at his hotel for as long as they need and he’s happy to recommend a builder.
When Billy reveals that a body was found in the canal and he suspects it might be that of Kel, Paul’s distraught and heads out leaving Billy worried.
Nick tells a thrilled Leanne about a hospital in Germany where they can treat people with Oliver’s condition. But their hope is short lived when the consultant breaks the news to Steve and Leanne that having obtained a second opinion, unfortunately it has only confirmed that Oliver will never be able to breathe unaided and the time has come to talk about switching off his life support.
Kirin approaches Priya and asks for money, and then to see Johnny. He’s horrified to learn Charity is intent on adoption Johnny, and then confronts her. He reveals that he’ll make it impossible for her to adopt Johnny if she doesn’t give him the large sum of money he’s after.
Charity turns up to the meeting spot with less money that she and Kirin agreed — and things turn nasty as a result. However, they’re taken aback when Tracy shows up — and the police aren’t far behind her!
Harriet reveals that she’s quitting as vicar, but Dawn pleads with her to reconsider — reminding her that she needs to remain a woman of the cloth so that they can continue to hide Malone’s burial spot. Harriet tears off her dog collar, and is full of self-loathing — but will she listen to Dawn’s words?
Juliet sets her sights upon Jordan kissing Leela in the alleyway. Given that Jordan is in a relationship with Peri, she’s horrified by such a betrayal. She wastes little time in confronting Jordan, but matters are complicated when he introduces her to his dangerous boss, Victor (Benjamin O’Mahoney).
Juliet and Sid (Billy Price) are subsequently tasked with selling twice as many drugs as before, and therefore they decide to target Imran Maalik’s (Ijaz Rana) party.
