Ryan returns

EastEnders airs the return of Ryan Malloy next week, seven years after his last appearance on the BBC soap.

The brother of Whitney Dean heads to Walford after finding out his daughter Lily, aged 12, is pregnant.

What happens next is chaos, as all hell breaks loose leading to Ryan dropping a massive bombshell on everyone after he heads back to Albert Square.

As a shocked Stacey hears him out in the café, not wanting him there, a sheepish Lily arrives to see her dad.

Lily enjoys quality time with Ryan who later offers to help them financially, following recent money issues.

Later in the week, Ryan heads to the hospital to support Lily at her first baby scan much to Stacey's fury.

But before the scan he stuns everyone when he drops a bombshell - but what has he revealed?

He and Stacey end up being asked to leave the room after a row erupts, and Lily is upset with Stacey for her behaviour towards Ryan.

Stacey reminds Lily that Martin is her dad, and the one who has always come through for her, but will she continue to get to know her biological father?

Linda receives some unwelcome news (BBC/Jack Barnes/Kieron McCarron)

Spoilers for next week's episodes reveal who is likely to be taking over the ownership of The Queen Vic, as Linda receives some unwelcome news via a phone call - leading to her fearing she will lose the pub.

Linda is dealt more bad news as she gets a call from her lawyer, who says that Janine is still keen to sell Mick's half of The Queen Vic.

She confides in Sharon about the news, and the pair quickly head to hatch a plan at the café. Linda is worried, as she seems to have no choice but to sell up. However, Sharon is adamant that won't happen.

Soon she makes an offer to Linda she can't refuse - and plots to buy Mick's half of The Vic.

Later in the week, Sharon continues with her plan, but a spanner is thrown in the works when someone else puts their name forward.

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