Tiffany decides she needs to escape Walford...

Tiffany Butcher will pack her bags tonight in EastEnders as she decides that with the world against her it’s time to move back home with Bianca.

Earlier this week, Keegan skived off school and, after a run in with Bernadette, found Tiffany and demanded she gave him some more drugs.

Tiffany refused, but Keegan forced a wrap of drugs from her and later collapsed, revealing Tiffany to be a drug dealer.

Tiffany announces she's moving back home with Bianca in this evening's EastEnders

Now, in this evening’s episode we see Tiffany (played by Maisie Smith) sneaking home after being out all night at a party with Evie.

However, Whitney (Shona McCarty) catches her trying to get back into the house quietly and rages at her for her outrageous behaviour.

“I can’t do this no more,” says Whitney. “Why should I wait up all night, worrying about whether you’ve been run over, picked up, groomed, or you’re just lying in a ditch somewhere. You know this ain’t my job, I ain’t even your mother.”

It suddenly dawns on Tiffany how bad she’s really been and that even Whitney is now turning against her.

Realising she needs time away, Tiffany reveals her plan to move back home with Bianca. She then says sorry to Whitney, and she packs her bags to leave Walford.

However, in a further twist, Keegan catches her and they share a massive heart-to-heart, with Keegan pleading with her to stay in Albert Square.

Tiffany thinks on what Keegan says, but she again doesn’t go to school. And when Whitney finds out that she’s again skipped class, she agrees that it’s time for Tiffany to go and spend some time away.

So, will Tiffany really leave? Will she head back to see Bianca? Or does, she have another destination on her mind?

EastEnders continues tonight at 8pm.
