EastEnders viewers branded Nancy Carter (Maddy Hill) and Zack Hudson’s (James Farrar) relationship as ‘boring’ during last night’s episode (Tuesday, June 21) and said that the couple had ‘no chemistry’ after Zack shockingly proposed to Nancy.
Recently in EastEnders, Zack was caught out for cheating on his girlfriend Nancy with Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf).
On top of this, Nancy has been struggling to cope with Linda’s alcoholism and has been taking her anger out on Zack.
Hurt by Nancy’s behaviour, Zack had a drunken one-night stand with Sam.
As the pair managed to rekindle their relationship, Zack’s infidelity was exposed at Tina Carter’s (Luisa Bradshaw-White) memorial when a picture of a half-naked Zack and Sam was projected across The Albert.
During last night’s episode, Nancy was devastated by Zack’s deceit and the Carter family had now declared war on the Mitchell’s.
Wracked with guilt, Zack desperately tried to repair their relationship, but his begging wasn’t enough to convince Nancy.
As the pair squared up to each other, things got out of hand when Mick accused Zack of ruining her time being back on the Square.
“And that’s all my fault, is it?” Zack asked.
“What?” Mick questioned.
“It’s not exactly happy families at yours, is it, Mick? I’ve wiped away a couple of tears at your expense,” Zack said.
When Zack branded Mick’s family as ‘a joke,’ a fuming Mick nearly came to blows with Zack until Sharon asked him to leave.
“Come near my boozer again, I will kill you,” he warned.
As Zack sat down with Martin Fowler (James Bye) to talk about the issue, Martin told Zack to stay away from Nancy to let her heal.
However, Zack refused and rushed to be by her side where he profusely declared his love for her.
A heartbroken Nancy turned him down again, but desperate to win her back and prove the ultimate commitment, Zack got down on one knee and proposed to her.
Will she accept his proposal? Will this be the final nail in the coffin of their relationship, or could we hear wedding bells in the not too distant future?
As the chaos unfolded, fans were busy focusing on Nancy and Zack’s lack of chemistry and labelled their love story as ‘boring’…
Nancy and Zack are so boring as a couple 😴 They’ve got no chemistry and it feels so forced. #EastEndersJune 21, 2022
the lack of chemistry from zack & nancy is too much💀 #eastendersJune 21, 2022
Zack and Nancy/Kheerat and Stacey are super boring and forced to me. I’m still bitter about Stuart leaving. How can you let Ricky go away. He’s such an asset. #EastendersJune 21, 2022
Please can this show stop forcing pairings that simply don’t work. Did anyone buy the whole Zack and Nancy love story the second it was put together? God it’s boring. #EastEndersJune 21, 2022
EastEnders continues tonight at 7:30pm on BBC One.
