Episode 4416



Bianca’s life hasn’t been a bowl of cherries of late. It’s not even been a bowl of rotten apples they couldn’t flog down the market. She’s a single mum, she hasn’t got enough money to scrape together the rent, there’s precious little food in the house, and an overflowing bath has ruined the ceiling – which Janine insists Bianca, as her tenant, repairs immediately.

But the scriptwriters at EastEnders just love to pile on the agony. Bianca’s life starts to spiral out of control, and she's set to do something very, very foolish for a woman who was only released from prison a few months ago.


Carol's patience with Bianca runs out after a meter reader discovers the illegal key - and following a furious argument, she decides to move out. Derek briefly feels a part of the family as he tries to repair the ceiling, but is once more an outcast when he is blamed for the meter key affair. Feeling lonely, he decides to contact his estranged son Joey, only to face more rejection. Whitney's insecurity prompts her to invade Tyler's privacy, and Ben's attempt to cheer Phil up is not appreciated.
