There’s a schedule change to EastEnders this week as we’ll get a double bill on Thursday and no episode on Friday.
The week’s stories see not one, but TWO shock proposals.
After Lola’s baby bombshell, Jay decides popping the question is the best way to prove he’s serious about their future.
But as he rehearses the big moment with Lexi, what will Lola say when he actually gets down on one knee?
Elsewhere, Rainie is shaken when an ex ‘client’ turns up at the funeral parlour and Stuart wants to reassure her he doesn’t care about her past.
After much consideration he decides to ask her to marry him, but will she say yes?
Here’s when you can catch these storylines and more the week commencing Monday March 9, 2020.
