The usually lovelorn Jean (Gillian Wright) is to find happiness as she shares a kiss with fellow gardener Ollie (Tony O’Callaghan).
Before her date, Jean’s nerves threaten to get the better of her and it’s left to Kat (Jessie Wallace) to boost her confidence and reassure her that she’ll have a good time. But Jean is left with a shock when Ollie, who has tried to use a game of swingball to break the ice, mentions that he’s a policeman.
Jean soon appears visibly nervous as she secretly frets about her part in Ian Beale’s restaurant fire. But Ollie is quick to reassure her that he doesn’t care about whatever it is that she’s done wrong: “All I care about is what’s happening here and now,” he says. The pair then end their date with a kiss.
