EastEnders: Gavin returns next week – and he’s as sinister as ever!

Will Kathy listen to Gavin's pleas? And how will his reunion with Sharon go?


Kathy is to get a Valentine’s shock next week when she finds sinister Gavin Sullivan waiting for her at home.


With thoughts of his Halloween reign of terror on her mind, Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) warns her husband that she’s going to call the police if he doesn’t leave.

But she’s taken aback when Gavin (Paul Nicholas) tells Kathy that he’s been on holiday with Sharon and needs a message passed on to her as the trip ended badly.


As the pair talk, Dot (June Brown) arrives to play cards with Kathy and quickly realises who Gavin is. Taking a no-nonsense approach, Dot tells Kathy not to listen to him. But when Gavin breaks down in tears, he ends up winning Kathy round and she agrees to talk to Sharon.

But how will the reunion between father and daughter go? Will Sharon (Letitia Dean) be convinced by Gavin’s assurances that he only wants to be a good father? And is Kathy set to be manipulated further by the man she thought was out of her life for good?
