Louise Mitchell has a baby drama, Mel Owen's plan starts to fall apart and Tiffany Butcher has a run in with new girl Dotty Cotton.

Louise Mitchell is rushed to hospital over fears for her baby in Friday’s episode of EastEnders (8 pm, see our TV Guide for full listings). Dad-to-be Keanu Taylor has already lost it with Louise’s mum Lisa Fowler, insisting that Mel Owen is too involved in a pregnant Louise’s life, when Louise has the scare.

Fortunately it’s a false alarm and both Louise and the baby are sent home. After the hospital visit Lisa realises that Keanu is right and Mel is becoming increasingly overbearing.

It seems that Mel’s plans are starting to unravel, especially now that her blackmail victim Sharon Mitchell has something on her. Mel goes to desperate lengths, making up an elaborate lie in a bid to get what she wants. Will it work?

Meanwhile, Keanu’s mum Karen Taylor finds out from Ben Mitchell that Keanu is planning to leave for Portugal with Louise and Karen’s unborn grandchild. Karen is devastated.

Tiffany Butcher is furious when she finds out that new girl on the Square Dotty Cotton has caused trouble for her fiancé Keegan Baker. Tiff confronts Dotty about her actions, while Ian Beale finds out that Keegan still hasn’t shut down his food venture. A fuming Ian takes matters into his own hands.

Also, Ian has another run in with Bobby Beale after it’s clear he’s more interested in trying to secure the post of Walford counsellor than listening to his son.

EastEnders continues on BBC1 on Monday at 8 pm
