Callum Highway's worried about Whitney Dean, Sonia Fowler is shocked to see a beat up Martin Fowler and Stuart Branning makes a confession.

Whitney Dean is surprised to see Leo at the E20 in Friday’s episode of EastEnders (8.30pm, see our TV Guide for full listings). Despite the confusion with Whitney’s sister Tiffany Butcher the day before, Leo tries to defend Tiffany’s actions. When Whitney warms to Leo he suggests that they take things back to his.

But when her ex Callum Highway walks in with his lover Ben Mitchell, Whitney is determined to stay in the club. An upset Whitney downs the drinks and confesses to Leo that she’s jealous of Tiffany. When Callum sees that Whitney’s drunk, he’s concerned and comes over to check on her. The former fiancés have an emotional chat. Whitney later sees Callum’s brother Stuart Highway and has another heart-to-heart.

Sonia Fowler is horrified when she sees that Martin is badly injured, after the job he did for Ben Mitchell the previous day took a wrong turn. Although Sonia insists that Martin go to A&E to get checked over, he refuses. A frustrated Sonia is angry with Martin for not putting their daughter Bex Fowler first and a sorry Martin begs Sonia’s forgiveness.

Stuart Highway visits Kathy Beale in the café and tries to intimidate her over girlfriend Rainie Branning’s recent troubles, threatening to hurt her sons Ian Beale and Ben Mitchell. Kathy tries to get an upset Stuart to calm down and he eventually opens up to her. He admits that he and Rainie always face harsh judgement from other people because of their history of addiction.

Also, Iqra Ahmed is concerned that girlfriend Ash is keeping her away from her family. Gray Atkins suggests to a fed up Karen Taylor that they have a party to celebrate wife Chantelle Atkins pregnancy.

EastEnders continues on BBC1 on Monday at 8.00pm
