Episode 4686



When it comes to glamorous women, EastEnders tends present them as tottering creatures swathed in leopard print, plastered in make-up so thick it could be used as stone-cladding and with luxuriant hair extensions that would make Rapunzel envious. So it’s a pleasant surprise to see that Sadie Young (Kate Magowan), the new owner of Booty, while undoubtedly glamorous, has none of the usual Walford attributes.

That said, she’s a tough businesswoman who will cause a stir among the Square’s other headstrong career women. Do you hear that sound? It’s Janine Butcher and Sharon Watts busily sharpening their claws in preparation for what may be a massive clash of wills.


Max is back in Walford and is immediately forced to consider his future with Kirsty when she gives him an ultimatum. However, Carl is determined to win her back for himself, and quickly forms a plan. Poppy sees a group of workmen at the salon, only to discover one of them isn't quite what he seems, while Alfie needs to find Kat so he can tell her the wedding date before it is made public. Michael is furious when he sees his baby in Danny's arms, prompting him to ask ex-cop Jack to do a few background checks, and Whitney and Tyler decide to stay friends, only for him to change his mind - for the worst.
