A huge week in EastEnders kicked off last night when Michelle Fowler’s affair with Preston Cooper was revealed.
And it’s Martin Fowler who’s set to lash out the hardest as he goes for Preston and disowns his sister.
The news about Michelle and Preston came out in true Walford fashion – right in the middle of The Vic.
Bex had discovered the truth from Louise Mitchell, who’d found out from Dennis. At first dismissing it, when Bex saw Preston stroke Michelle’s arm, she stopped the set she was playing in the pub and asked her aunty:
“Are you sleeping with my boyfriend?”
Michelle’s face said it all as the duff duffs chimed, and tonight the fallout is set to continue.
A raging Martin confronts his sister and her lover, furious that his daughter’s been dragged into their sordid affair.
Bex has already been going through the ringer as she suffers at the hands of school bullies Alexandra and Madison. She’s also faced police questioning over the naked photo of Shakil that Louise sent round the whole school.
As the Fowler clan head over to the Beales’ place to have it out, Martin demands to know why Preston thought it was okay to sleep with two women at once?
The fuming dad can’t contain his temper long enough to get an answer though and angrily lunges at Preston. He gives him a bloody eye before being held back by Ian, but it’s then that Michelle realises the full extent of what she’s done.
Realising Martin won’t be able to forgive her, and with their relationship in tatters, Michelle can’t cope any more. She totally loses control and it’s not long before disaster strikes.
As Michelle reels from her own actions, the Fowlers’ lives are set to change forever. Can Martin ever forgive his sister?
Has Michelle lost everything?
