KATHY Beale is under financial pressure after paying off Rocky Cotton’s ex-wife Jo to get rid of her meddling.
Next week in EastEnders, her husband decides to treat her to a romantic getaway, but it completely backfires.
Jo Cotton wreaked havoc on Kathy and Rocky’s wedding day by trapping her former husband and branding him a bigamist.
Desperate for a fresh start with her boyfriend, Kathy (portrayed by Gillian Taylforth) agreed to pay Jo off in order to finally find some peace.
Unfortunately, this left her in financial distress as she decided to sell the chippy before her son Ian intervened.
Distracted by her money problems, Kathy, as a married woman, hasn’t had the opportunity to spend much time with Rocky (Brian Conley).
Next week on the BBC One soap, Rocky tries to get Kathy in the mood for some alone time, but her living situation with Sonia Fowler takes its toll.
To woo Kathy, Rocky hosts a romantic picnic in the parking lot, but she is angry because he wasted money they don’t have.
After a swipe from Kathy, Rocky realizes he has to take drastic measures to get her back on the right path.
What will he do?
It has been confirmed that Rocky will be leaving Albert Square as actor Brian Conley will focus on new ventures outside of the London-based program.
Since he was tipped to leave the long-running soap, viewers have been in a frenzy, sharing their wildest theories on social media.
While many of them have speculated that he could be killed during the Christmas crime spree, others believe that the former con man will continue his old tricks.
