Karen Taylor is hoping to enjoy a nice family life with son Keanu (Danny Walters), Louise (Tilly Keeper) and her unborn grandchild – but tonight in EastEnders she receives devastating news.
Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) spills the beans to Karen (Lorraine Stanley) that Keanu is planning to flee Walford for Portugal with his new baby and Louise.
Karen is absolutely gutted when she hears the bombshell news from Ben and wonders if there’s anything she can do to change her son’s mind.
She goes off to see Keanu but can her words get through to him? Or, will Louise, Keanu and their new baby really be departing the Square for good for Portugal?
And, if Keanu does get cold feet, might Louise decide anyway that her and her baby will have a brighter future in Portugal?
Of course, this is all finally expected to come to a massive head at Christmas with the explosive revelation of Keanu’s affair with Sharon (Letitia Dean).
It’s a dramatic night for Keanu as Louise has a baby scare and is rushed to hospital for checks to see if everything is ok.
The dad-to-be has been fuming with Louise’s mum Lisa Fowler (Lucy Benjamin), saying that Mel has become far too involved in Louise’s life, when the fright happens.
Luckily, the doctors at the hospital inform Louise that her and her baby are fine and they’re sent home.
Also, this evening in EastEnders Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith) is furious when she discovers that Dotty Cotton (Milly Zero) is causing mischief for her fiancé Keegan Baker. Tiffany decides it’s time to sort everything out and goes off to confront Dotty about what been going on. How will Dotty respond?
EastEnders continues tonight at the slightly later time of 8.30pm.
