But it's bad luck for Billy yet again, when Finlay Baker gets to Honey first! He's seen how awkward Honey is with Mr Lister and he decides to be her knight in shining armour and save her.

When Finlay intervenes in their lunch and pretends to be Honey's new boyfriend, Mr Lister is left deflated.

Karen Taylor is worried about Stuart Highway as he seems to have gone missing after Jay Brown fired him from the funeral parlour. 

His brother Callum Highway and his gran Vi Highway are also very concerned and the three team up to try and find him.

Stuart has been to the hospital to talk to the doctor about his prognosis following his treatment for breast cancer. They find him packing up his stuff and demand to know what's going on.

Stuart admits that he's been given the all clear from cancer. The three are delighted for him but confused about why he's still so anxious and glum.

Karen realises where Stuart's pain is coming from and she encourages him to talk to her. He confesses that he's signed all his parental rights over to wife Rainie Highway after she insisted that she never wants to see him again.

Poor Stuart! Karen knows that he's still struggling with post natal depression and she encourages him to get some help.

EastEnders continues on BBC One on Thursday at 7:30 pm.
