EastEnders SPOILER: Heartbroken Bex goes missing

She flees after finding out about Kush and Kat

There's panic for Sonia and Martin Fowler in next week's EastEnders when their teenage daughter Bex suddenly vanishes.

Bex has been struggling over recent months with the pressure of getting into a top university playing on her mind and keeping her studying until all hours.

She has even started taking pills to keep her awake, leaving Kush Kazemi worried about her.

But as the pressure to do well mounts, so do Bex's feelings for her dad's best friend. And next week will see her act on them once again as she tries to tell Kush how she feels.

Bex opens her heart to Kush at the market, but Martin manages to interrupt at the wrong moment and Bex dashes off.

Kush feels awful and ends up confessing to Martin that Bex has got a crush on him.

While Martin assures his friend that he will set Bex straight, it's too little, too late when Bex comes up with a plan to get Kush alone and lets herself into his flat with the key he gave her so that she could study at his flat.

Kush tries to talk some sense into Bex, but when Kat arrives the penny finally drops for the student and she is heartbroken when she realises that they are a couple and runs off.

Devastated that Kush has met someone, Bex packs a bag and leaves Albert Square. But where is she going?

The following morning Sonia is shocked to realise Bex didn't come home the previous night and rushes to the Slaters to see if Martin has seen their daughter.

But it soon becomes apparent that something isn't right when Bex isn't there and Kat advises the parents to talk to Kush about Bex's whereabouts.

As Kush reveals the truth about what Bex has been up to, Martin and Sonia are stunned and race off to find her.

But it doesn't take long for the finger of suspicion to point at Stuart, especially when Rainie shows everyone the photo she took of Stuart hugging Bex recently.

As everyone reels from the photo, the hunt is on to find Stuart, who is also missing... but little do they know he is at the allotments looking for Bex himself, and is shocked when he comes across her smashed phone on the ground.

Stuart arrives back in Albert Square to find himself public enemy number one, and soon comes to blows with Martin.
