Stacey’s return to Walford has caused massive problems for Kat and Alfie – as well as for the script writers, who’ve got to figure out how Stacey can be allowed to stay when several people on the Square know she killed Archie Mitchell and she’s wanted by the police for stabbing Janine.

But such complicated situations don’t worry Kat, who comes up with a simple solution that stuns even Stacey. It doesn’t involve having plastic surgery and a complete personality transplant. It involves Janine. Yes, the very person who went to the extraordinary length of stabbing herself in order to frame Stacey and who is currently in prison for murdering Michael Moon and framing Alice Branning for that crime, too. Just the sort of kind, selfless person you can trust with your life, then.

About this programme

Kat takes matters into her own hands to help Stacey stay in Walford, despite her cousin's reservations about the plan. However, Stacey then puts herself at great risk when she is forced to venture outside into the Square - will her cover be blown? Patrick considers the future of the B&B after he and Denise receive surprising news from Kim, Peter asks his dad to give Billy a job, and Tina realises the importance of having loved ones close by, while Carol has her second chemotherapy appointment.
