Heartbreak and horror is on the cards for some of soap’s finest next week, with big discoveries set to be made, while others endure terrifying ordeals that will change everything.
EastEnders deals with a number of big developments, including a shock proposal, a boxing match and a blast from the past causing trouble for Linda Carter, who is also upset by the actions of her mate Alfie Moon.
Over in Coronation Street, a devastating acid attack takes place as stalker Justin takes things to a disturbing new level on the day of Daisy Midgeley’s wedding, while Amy Barlow bravely reports her rape ordeal to the police.
Emmerdale, meanwhile, sees Gabby Thomas and nanny Nicky caught out, leading to a rather shocking series of events, while Mandy Dingle is determined to be there for Paddy at all costs.
Over in Hollyoaks, Mercedes McQueen makes friends with newcomer Sharon Bailey, played by none other than Jamelia, and Tony Hutchinson is spooked when he receives word of a late-night intruder.
But is everything as it seems?
