While mums all over Britain put their Mother’s Day flowers in vases, we reckon EastEnders’ Claudette Hubbard (Ellen Thomas) will be trying to work out where to put Gavin Sullivan’s body.
And we think we know where it will end up…
“Come over on Sunday,” Claudette told Gavin [Paul Nicholas] in Friday night’s episode of the soap.
Gavin turns up, demanding money from Claudette – or else he’ll reveal her dark secret
And he does. Gavin’s been blackmailing Claudette over a dark secret in her past and he thinks he’s going to collect a big wad of cash.
But Claudette has no money.
Gavin wants paying, though and, as we’ve seen, he can be very demanding. Things certainly turn nasty and Claudette is desperate to keep Gavin quiet. That’s why she whacks him over the head.
Claudette has to shut Gavin up… But has she silenced him for good?
But has she killed him? Our pictures suggest she thinks she has and drags him into the basement, which by sheer good fortune is being converted into a flat for her.
“All hell is about to break loose for the Hubbard family,” our EastEnders source tells us.
It sure is!
Claudette’s son Vincent (Richard Blackwood) finds his mum in the basement and looks horrified. Has she been using that cement mixer to cover up her attack on Gavin?
Vincet finds his mum in the basement building site. What has she done?
Or is it someone else whose body is going to be used as hardcore for the foundations of the basement conversion?
Is it Claudette? We can reveal that all sorts of secrets spill out and Vincent might just kill his mother when he finds out about her past.
We’ve all been led to believe that it was her who killed her husband, Henry, not Phil Mitchell’s dad, as she claimed. Vincent wouldn’t like to hear that…
Worryingly, though, Patrick (Rudolph Walker) also appears in the basement… We hate to even think it but could Patrick be in the wrong place at the wrong time?

It’s a violent Mother’s Day at the Queen Vic, too…
Nancy (Maddy Hill) and Lee (Danny-Boy Hatchard) get into yet another fight over that rotten bar job at The Rat and Shovel which has terrible consequences for their baby brother, Ollie, after he’s accidentally knocked over in his high chair.
Baby Ollie is about to become a victim of Lee and Nancy’s fight
And the day looked so promising for Mick when he handed Shirley her first Mother’s Day card from him.

We think he’s going to need his mum in the weeks ahead…
