Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 17 April 2017

Sonia’s (Natalie Cassidy) back and inserting her trumpet into general conversation, again – as well as causing chaos as she tries to protect her daughter. Add a funeral and a spot of heckling at the Mayor into the mix and it all bodes well for a happy week in Walford! Here are some highlights…

Bump it with a trumpet ~ Sonia may be back fleetingly to see her bullied daughter. She may have wreaked a spot of havoc, too by launching herself at Sharon (Letitia Dean) in the Square – that was funny! However, why oh why does Sonia’s trumpet have to be brought up on every given opportunity? Cassidy’s returns are becoming a ‘spot the word trumpet’ game for yours truly!

New Character (Hands high when we fly by!) ~ Lee Ryan (from Blue!) has joined the cast as Woody, sent by Linda (Kellie Bright) to help out at The Vic. His arrival did not go down well initially but it seems that he is having a positive impact on the pub’s takings – so we’ll see…

Bullying ~ Sonia’s intervention has brought Bex’s (Jasmine Armfield) ordeal to a head and although Louise (Tilly Keeper) is let off (should she have been? I don’t think so!) the two main culprits have had some comeuppance. Although they look set to transfer their wrath to Louise. Possibly not wise, have they met Phil (Steve McFadden)?!

Funeral ~ It’s Sylvie’s funeral and Tina (Luisa Bradshaw-White) has gone all out and ordered a ‘MUM’ wreath from Billy (Perry Fenwick) at late notice. It seems rather extravagant when there is a distinct lack of turn out, but Shirl’s (Linda Henry) arrival heralds some sense of occasion and the pub is quite well patronised by Sylvie’s mates, so all is as it should be. RIP Sylvie!

Lauren’s lament ~ Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) is on tenterhooks as she awaits news of a potential interview. When she finally cottons on to the fact that the email may have gone to her spam folder, she is delighted to discover that she has been invited to the interview she has been pinning her hopes on. Steven (Aaron Sidwell) is supportive as ever, although his dreams of a family are somewhat dashed. On the day of the interview, Lauren arrives to discover that her photocopier man is not the photocopier man. Playing with fire, Lauren…
