Elsewhere, and on Coronation Street there's panic as a house fire leaves one character being rushed to hospital - and another feeling guilty.

Finally on EastEnders, Alfie Moon finds a huge secret being exposed, and he's got a lot of explaining to do. Here's a look at the week ahead in soap land...

Alfie Moon reveals all on his secret bride-to-be next week, just days before his wedding is due to take place.

There has been no clue as to Alfie being engaged since his return recently, and instead he's been trying to win back ex Kat Slater - trying to stop her from marrying Phil Mitchell.

So when a mystery young woman arrives in Walford and informs Alfie he is getting married in the morning, both he and Kat are speechless.

News of his nuptials leave Kat stunned that she's been lied too, and Alfie has a lot of explaining to do.

Alfie quickly reveals that the woman in question is not his mystery fiancée, but he is set to marry another woman.

As Kat fumes at Alfie for lying to her, shocked he would hide something so huge, he agrees to let her meet his real fiancée as he explains everything the best way he can.

The teenager, who is dating Summer Spellman, has been distant with Eric since he revealed how his alcoholic father was violent towards him.

Refusing to see him, Aaron is relieved next week when Billy and Todd agree to visit Eric to check on him so that he doesn't have to.

Aaron is bombarded with angry text messages from his dad who lashes out at him.
