Lee Carter will go to desperate lengths to please new wife Whitney in next week’s EastEnders – but how will his error of judgment affect his already fragile mental health?
The drama unfolds after Jack tells Whitney that a flat at number five has become available at a discounted rate – but Lee is secretly worried that he still won’t be able to afford it. The pressure then mounts after Lee gets a knock back from his boss, who refuses to give him an advance on his wages.
By Thursday, the Carters will be going all out to celebrate Lee’s birthday, but he’s in no mood to party and quickly leaves. In the end, it’s Shirley who spots a solemn looking Lee and he admits he’s worried about letting Whitney down.
After listening to her supportive words, Lee tells Jack that they no longer want the flat – but he doesn’t, however, summon up the courage to let Whitney know about the change of heart.
And as her excitement grows, so does Lee’s guilt and he ends up making a rash move in order to pay the deposit. Just what is he going to do?
