Soap of the week: EastEnders
Tiffany (pictured) has returned... She manages to keep under the radar for a spell (aided, no doubt, by the fact she gifted her metallic lagging jacket to Bernie when she left for "Milton Keynes"), that is until she's located lurking about Ted's flat. No surprises for guessing who sniffs her out... Indeed it is Bernie!
In her endless endeavour to save Evie (above right), Tiffany sneaks back into the flat to find a hidden stash of cash when Bernie springs and marches her mate outside. Tiffany is shaken when she spots the guy who previously attacked Evie and, clocking this, Bernadette pushes to find out what's going on. Are Evie and Tiff's lives in mortal danger?
Instead of fleeing back to mum Bianca in Milton Keynes for real this time, young Tiff decides - again - to return to Evie. Beyond concerned for her friend, Bernie spills all to Whitney and Sonia. Agreeing to lure the teen back to Chez Taylor, Tiffany is enraged to learn of Bernie's betrayal, but that doesn't stop her staying for the night under the illusion that gibbering aunt Sonia will give her the money she needs to keep Evie safe.
While Sonia seeks advice from omnipotent Uncle Jack, Tiff is busy trying to steal money and jewellery from Dot's gaff. Unsurprisingly, Sonia gives her niece a right dressing daaahn, and locks her in a room. Tiff, being wily, escapes. But where to? After Bernadette mentions Ted's flat, Whitney, Sonia and Jack rush over - but what (or who) will they find in a decrepit state?
