EastEnders: the Cokers’ final showdown with Babe – who will get the last word?

Pam and Les to confront Babe again before they exit


The Cokers may be packing their bags and heading out of Walford but there’s still time for a showdown with villainous Babe Smith.


Pam and Les’s last episode of EastEnders – to be shown on Friday 14 October – will see them confront Babe over her vicious blackmailing. But how will Babe react and who will have the last word?

Babe’s persecution of the Cokers’ has threatened their marriage – with the cash demands continuing despite Pam and Les having recently lost their beloved grandson Paul.

But thankfully, despite the on-screen tension, it seems that it’s all smiles between the actors behind the scenes.

“In actual fact, Annette Badland is gorgeous,” actress Lin Blakley, who plays Pam, tells RadioTimes.com. “We didn’t meet until we did EastEnders together, but she’s become a friend. She gives a great hug and she’s such a good laugh. We can talk about anything. It’s Babe I can’t stand, not Annette. She’s so good at what she does.”
