Janine update

EastEnders will revisit Mick Carter and Janine Butcher's exits next week, months on from a tragic death.

Mick was seemingly killed off after a showdown with Janine, with him currently presumed drowned and lost at sea.

Janine was arrested for covering up a crime she committed last year after pinning it on Linda Carter, as she finally faced justice after months of destroying love rival Linda's life.

Linda faced trouble with the law and faced losing custody of daughter Annie over the crime she did not commit, and Janine was keen for this to happen.

Janine has been in prison ever since her Boxing Day arrest, while Linda is struggling to adapt to a life without Mick who is believed to be dead.

Next week, Linda is nervous as she waits for Janine's plea and fears it will go to trial.

Linda later gets an update on Janine, but will Janine do the right thing or can we expect a looming return for the character as her case heads to court?

Rocky's secret exposed

Rocky finds his past coming back to haunt him (BBC/Jack Barnes/Kieron McCarron)

Rocky finds his past coming back to haunt him next week, as a lie leads to dramatic scenes.

He struggles to contain his guilt as he overhears Kathy gushing to Bobby about her second chance at love, leading to an awkward confession to Sonia.

Sonia is left stunned when Rocky reveals he got married 25 years ago but he and his wife never got divorced.

Disgusted over Rocky's secret, she warns him to tell Kathy by the end of the day or she will.

Sonia soon has a change of heart though thanks to Reiss' view on the matter, and decides to help him fix the situation.

Reiss and Sonia strategise with Rocky about his predicament and he starts to feel more optimistic about the future - but the trouble is far from over.

Later in the week, Rocky enlists the help of Sonia, Reiss and Harvey to try and track down his wife Jo but to no avail.

Freddie soon steps in to help though and tracks Jo down within minutes - but when he learns about Rocky’s lies he is furious.

He sets out for revenge, and after taking action he confesses to Rocky that he tracked Jo down and gave her Kathy’s address.

Keanu proposes

Keanu will propose to Sharon (BBC/Jack Barnes/Kieron McCarron)

Keanu will propose to Sharon next week on EastEnders - ahead of a horror death on her wedding day.

Spoilers for the BBC soap reveal Sharon is dismissive of Keanu once again next week at the grand opening of Boxing Den. After a talk from Sam, Keanu is hopeful that big declaration will win her over, and Sharon is left shocked as he gets down on one knee and proposes to her in front of everyone. Angry and upset, she runs out and he hurries after her to declare his love.

Later, Kat arrives to talk to Sharon and tells her she needs to listen to her heart, but she is still unsure. That is until Sam calls by for a frank conversation and asks her to re-think, and soon she is calling Keanu and inviting him over.

What will she have to say - and will she accept his offer?

EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
