Chelsea wants to end things with Gray, Dana’s dad Harvey rages after discovering the truth about Bobby, plus Ruby’s big gesture backfires. 

It’s all your EastEnders spoilers for the week of the 9-13 August, 2021.

Harvey learns the truth about Bobby

Up until this point, Harvey has been kept in the dark about both Bobby’s conversion to Islam and his imprisonment for the murder of Lucy. But after a loose-lipped Rocky lets slip the full details, Harvey ends up barging round to Kathy’s and venting his anger.

The next day sees Bobby heading off to pick up his A-level results. But while he’s gone, Kathy speaks to Harvey and asks him not to judge Bobby by his past.

Following Kath’s plea, Harvey will be seen begrudgingly congratulating Bobby – but I’m wondering whether Dana’s dad has some deep-rooted prejudice that he won’t be able to shake.

Mila’s plan put in jeopardy?

Speaking of Bobby, he’ll also be seen with Iqra handing out flyers for a new prayer room. Bobby’s friend Waseem also tags along to help but has a problem with the prayer room potentially being next to a bar that is LGBTQ inclusive.

An angry Iqra then defends her faith and sexuality to Waseem, but does so right in front of Mila who, at that very moment, is trying to impress Kioni’s social worker. Will Iqra’s outburst have jeopardised things?

Chelsea plans to end her relationship with Gray

Chelsea may like the idea of being with Gray, but she isn’t that enamoured with his kids. And when she comes up with a snide new nickname for them, Karen starts to feel increasingly worried about Chelsea’s suitability. Gray, meanwhile, will be seen making peace with Whitney when she visits No 1 with a present for Mia’s birthday.

The day of Mia’s party happens to coincides with Chelsea’s court hearing – and when the latter wins her case, she swerves Mia’s do and heads to the club instead, where she receives a drink from an admirer.

The following day, a hungover Chelsea is in the Queen Vic and Sharon realises that she’s having man troubles. After advising her to end the relationship she doesn’t want to be in, Chelsea decides to put a halt to the romance with Gray and prepares to hand back his keys…

Ben is threatened

A cash-strapped Ben gets threatened by a loan shark, with the confrontation witnessed by both Callum and Vi. Not wanting to be overwhelmed by his money troubles, Ben ends up asking his dad for help, but Phil is about to leave for France to visit Louise and refuses.

Later on, at Walford East, Vi is gossiping to Kathy about Ben’s financial problems, but their conversation is overheard by an interested Kheerat. Might he end up coming to Ben’s rescue?

Ruby makes a big gesture

It’s the week of Ruby’s follow-up appointment and she’s determined to put some good vibes into the universe – hence Jean discovering a large amount of money in her bank account.

When Jean then angrily demands that Ruby take it back, the minted nightclub owner explains all about her upcoming trip to see the doctor. So realising what Ruby wanted to achieve, Jean decides to take just enough money to pay Sean a visit. She also agrees to accompany Ruby to the hospital, but what Jean isn’t expecting is for her benefactor to then make another big confession…
