But Denise and her lack of strength isn't the only thing that had fans tuning into EastEnders last night.

They were also treated to Mel trying to keep Hunter's spirits up as he hid in the basement of a house, away from the police.

As Mel tried to get her son's strength up, she was shocked when everyone confronted her about Hunter escaping from prison after reading it in the paper.

Convinced that everyone knows she's hiding her fugitive son in Walford, Mel was relieved when they offer her support, jumping to the conclusion that she must also be wondering where Hunter is.

As Mel covered, it was clear that she was struggling, especially when the police arrived and told her that the prison guard had woken up and was accusing Hunter of attacking him.

As Hunter confessed everything to Mel, it seemed there were no more secrets between the pair... but when Hunter spotted the gun from the E20 safe in Mel's bag, it was clear he is still intent on revenge.

Is Jack in danger?

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
