Those who thought that Claudette Hubbard had a sinister streak look set to have their suspicions confirmed – just look at the terrified look in son’s Vincent’s eyes for starters!
The BBC1 soap has released a new promo that spotlights all the upcoming Mother’s Day drama, an occasion during which EastEnders bosses are promising that “all hell will break loose”.
The high-stakes storyline will see Claudette trying to rid herself of the blackmail demands of whispering villain Gavin. But as Claudette attempts to solve her problems once and for all, Vincent gets caught up in the nightmarish situation.
“Things take a sinister turn, changing the Hubbard family forever,” said a show insider, before adding, “Will all come out alive?”
Speaking recently to RadioTimes.com about the nature of the upcoming scenes, Richard Blackwood said: “Claudette is already showing signs that she’s not a puppet and that she therefore must be a master.
“What I will say is that when you see what we have coming up between Vincent and Claudette, your jaws will drop. It’s a different gear.”
Meanwhile, recent returnee Jordan will be causing problems for Denise, who is trying to prevent him from going through with a dangerous plan. Will she be able to stop him?
Watch the promo below. Beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on EastEnders.
