Dot Branning's life will be left on the line in next week's EastEnders when she crashes to the floor after falling over pet cat Dave.

The injured Walford icon's cries for help look set to go unheard by close friend Patrick, who calls round to check on her. And it's only when Sonia makes her return from Kettering that Dot ends up getting saved.

Scenes to be shown on Thursday 27 June then see a guilt-ridden Patrick watch with other residents as Dot is taken away in an ambulance as Sonia fumes that nobody has been keeping an eye on her.

The residents of the Square later receive news that Dot will need an operation to fix her hip - but will the EastEnders legend make it through the procedure? And will the drama leave everyone at home worried about not being there for Dot in the first place?
