Cindy Beale (Michelle Collins) comes to a realisation in upcoming EastEnders scenes, in the aftermath of her shocking fling with one-time stepson Junior Knight (Micah Balfour).


Yes, we're still recovering from that particular cliffhanger, and although the pair's passion remains under wraps for now, Junior's other acts of infidelity have been exposed to his wife Monique (Busayo Ige), who promptly demanded she wanted a divorce.

Facing up to his actions, a lost Junior agreed to a business partnership with estranged dad George Knight (Colin Salmon).

Next week, Cindy commits to being with Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) in her own unique way – sending him to the Boxing Den to get fit!

But when Junior ends up being the one to train Ian, this is sure to panic Cindy. When Ian ends up injured, Cindy orders Junior to leave once they've escorted Ian home.

It seems Cindy thought that Junior was trying to get to her by undermining Ian, but this turns out not to be the case. Cindy heads to the gym to apologise to Junior, and despite her previously vowing that their night together was a mistake, they share a rather heated encounter.

Cindy ends up returning home to try and seduce Ian, but does this only cross her mind because she's had another liaison with Junior, or can Cindy resist temptation? Whatever happens next, something tells us that Cindy and Junior won't be able to stay away from each other.

Meanwhile, as George is busy trying to repair his romance with fiancée Elaine Peacock (Harriet Thorpe), we couldn't fail to notice that he has much more chemistry with Cindy. But might Cindy be about to fall in love with Junior instead?

EastEnders airs these scenes on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th June.
