1. Honey Mitchell and Jay Brown run London Marathon in Lola Pearce-Brown's honour

As the day of the London Marathon arrives, the Square is abuzz with excitement. But when Jay insists he isn't going to take part after Nadine's baby bombshell, Honey persuades him otherwise.

Billy, meanwhile, is delayed getting to the starting line when he has to drive Whitney, Britney Wainwright (Lola Campbell) and Zack Hudson (James Farrar) to A&E!

Billy finally arrives to support partner Honey, but his bad luck continues. As Lexi and Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) head to the finish line, what happens to Billy? Will he be there for Honey and Jay?

Speaking to and other press about running the marathon both as Honey and as herself, Barton explained the logistics of this storyline: "I'm going to treat it as a live episode. There's three scenes - we've just got to really make sure we all work together as well as we possibly can.

"Thankfully, Jamie and I aren't speaking as Honey and Jay while we're running, so that's one hurdle that we've got over.

"It is a massive thing for us, because we're actors, not athletes, and it is really, really tough and time-consuming, and you just want to be the best you can possibly be."

She returns home to a romantic evening arranged by Patrick, but his loving advances are triggering for Yolande, who leaves Patrick puzzled when she rushes out.

Patrick remains in the dark about the pastor's attack on Yolande, but will she be able to open up to him over her ordeal?

Jay is given food for thought over his dilemma, and later invites Nadine to the flat. But an argument brews when Jay questions if he is really the baby's father.

Nadine insists the baby is his, and reveals that she is expecting a girl. Won over, Jay promises to be there for her and their child, and gives Nadine money.

The following day, Nadine visits Jay, Callum Highway (Tony Clay) and Honey to apologise for upsetting Lexi about the pregnancy.

But when Nadine sees how serious Jay is about being a dad, she is overcome with guilt! As the week continues, Jay treats Lexi and Nadine to lunch in The Vic so the pair can bond.

But Lexi can't contain herself, and it's soon clear that a rift is forming between Lexi and Jay. Is all as it seems with Nadine? And what does Lexi have to say?

4. Lauren Branning's ultimatum for Whitney Dean

Following Britney's bike accident, Zack and Whitney are shocked to discover that the teen has Type 2 Usher syndrome after their trip to the hospital.

They are devastated when the doctor shares that the condition will lead to sight and hearing impairments. As viewers saw during her debut on EastEnders, Britney is deaf and wears a hearing aid.

Whitney is upset as she learns more about Britney's condition, and Zack worries that the stress is too much for heavily pregnant Whitney.

The couple later send Britney for her first day at Walford High. When Zack suggests registering the youngster with the local GP and telling them about Britney's condition, Whitney fibs that she's already done it, fearing the truth about her deal with Britney's mum Keeley Wainwright (Kirsty J Curtis) will come out.

After trying to convince Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) to bypass the checks needed to register Britney, Whit is forced to haul Keeley to the GP to sign her up.

Later, Whit misses a scan when Britney's school calls to inform her that the teen's hearing aids aren't working.

This leads to another row with Zack, but at Sonia's dinner party, Lauren tells Whitney that she must tell Zack everything, or Lauren will.

Lauren persists with this ultimatum, but Whitney pleads for more time. Zack overhears the women's tense discussion in the Minute Mart, and he demands answers.

Whit covers, and Lauren is fuming once more, but when she and Whitney find Britney after a run-in with some bullies, Whitney ignores Zack's advice and confronts the bully.

Whitney makes the situation worse when Britney is teased over Whit's intervention, but how long can Whitney keep her secret?

Anyone affected by Usher Syndrome can find help and support by visiting Cure Usher.

Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) convinces Jade not to go after getting backing from mum Jean Slater (Gillian Wright), and they arrange a leaving party for Jade in The Vic.

Avani Nandra-Hart (Aaliyah James) gives Jade food for thought, and later, we see Dean protesting his innocence at the prison. He insists he didn't tamper with Jade's medication or kill Keanu, but will he be able to persuade Jade?
