The day of Ben and Callum’s wedding dawns, but there’s no guarantee that either groom will get to say “I do”. Plus Sharon and Kheerat are the Square’s hot new item, while runaway Bailey encounters danger. 

It’s all you need to know about next week on EastEnders 10-14 May, 2021.

Wedding day drama for #Ballum

Ben and Callum’s wedding day will turn out to be a fraught and frantic affair when one of the grooms goes AWOL and Phil left in a fury.

Those suspicious that the pairing of a gangster with a copper wasn’t the best plan ever will be proved correct when Ben does a bunk as Callum waits at the altar. 

Stuart leaps into action to track him down, but mistakenly reveals to Phil that the reason for the last-minute hitch boils down to Callum having revealed that he was working undercover to bring down the Mitchell patriarch. Expect Phil to turn puce with rage as he realises the extent of Callum’s betrayal.

Passion for Sharon and Kheerat

A flirty Kheerat asks Sharon out for a drink and they start discussing their romantic pasts over a bottle of wine. Kheerat’s history is currently shrouded in mystery, but it’s going to take more than a few glasses of vino if Sharon’s going to disclose all the complexities of her love life.

Needless to say, the conversation soon takes a wrong turn and Kheerat puts his foot in it, leaving Sharon hurt. But the pair will soon be patching things up – in fact, when Kheerat is glimpsed later working alone in the call centre, who should appear in his doorway but a seductive Sharon…

Bailey in danger?

As a nation cries out for lovely little Bailey to head home, she continues to sleep out in an underpass with dog Banjo by her side. But threats to her welfare soon arise, first when some youths steal her bag and then later, when Bailey is approached by a man by the name of Reg who claims to have been friends with her mum.

An anxious Bernie desperately tries to make out that all will be fine, but Rainie isn’t convinced. As she points out, they have just one chance at this and it’d be heartbreaking for her and Stuart should all this go wrong.
