EastEnders viewers are convinced they have worked out who the next hot Walford couple will be...

EastEnders fans have taken to social media to share their theory that Honey and Jay are heading for romance.

However, EastEnders spoilers on the BBC website have hinted that Paul isn't all that he seems when Honey's date takes a terrifying turn.

Also in tonight's EastEnders, Jay admitted to Honey that his own relationship with Lola isn't going to plan.

After confessing that they have lost their spark since living in lockdown separately, Honey encouraged Jay by telling him that Lola loved him.

However, what neither Jay or Honey know is that Lola is hiding the secret that she slept with Peter Beale at the start of the year.

Could this news push Jay further towards Honey when the truth is revealed?
