With Gray Atkins assuming he’s going to take the lead, he’s shocked when Mitch Baker speeds past him to get to the finish line first! Mitch later confesses that he cheated but Gray doesn’t see the funny side and storms out.

Mick tells Linda that he’s booked a private appointment for their son Ollie Carter. He doesn’t want to wait any longer to get Ollie assessed for a possible autism diagnosis. Linda is still worried about what the future may bring for Ollie as she's nervous about facing a diagnosis. She's surprised that Mick has gone ahead with the plan already but eventually she reassures her husband that it’s the right thing to do for their son.

Stuart Highway discovers that his brother Callum Highway's fiancée Whitney Dean has her eye on a very special wedding dress. Wanting to help the couple have the wedding day of their dreams, he hatches a plan to help Whitney out.

EastEnders continues on Monday at 8.00 pm
