Joey Branning (David Witts) and Tyler Moon (Tony Discipline) are to come to blows in scenes set to air on Tuesday 29 January.
The fight occurs after Joey witnesses Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) looking uneasy whenever he and Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) are together. After Joey warns her that he’ll tell Tyler about their clandestine kiss should she continue acting superior, Whitney decides to confess all to her boyfriend.
A furious Tyler then heads to the Vic and confronts Joey: “You came onto her and she blew you out,” says Tyler, only for Joey to offer a different take on the situation:
“She couldn’t keep her hands off me. Now you’re lucky I’m actually a man with a conscience. It was far more than a kiss that she was after.”
It’s then that the fists start to fly, with Alfie (Shane Richie) having to step in to pull the boys apart. So will Tyler be able to get over Whitney disclosure? Or is their relationship doomed?
