Jessie as Kat Slater in EastEnders

As Jessie adjusts to life as a new grandma, her alter ego, Kat, is struggling with her own kids.

Eldest Tommy is in trouble with school bullies and Kat believes he has stolen money from her.

In fact, Tommy is innocent, but when he tries to find a solution to replace the money next week, he lands himself in even more trouble.

Billy thinks Tommy is stealing his cash box and the lad is once again left desperate to prove his innocence.

Meanwhile, on top of the Tommy troubles, Kat is holding the fort for Phil while he’s in prison.

When Ben tells her she must accept and store a dodgy package for her other half, Kat is not happy. She refuses at first, but Ben tells her as she’s in charge of the businesses she must do it.

Kat then visits Phil in prison who begs her to take the package as his safety inside depends on it.

Reluctantly agreeing, Kat is totally knocked for six when she finds out exactly what’s inside.

Will she continue to support Phil from the outside?
