EastEnders spoilers follow.
EastEnders' Jay Brown will turn to drugs next week, as he continues to struggle with his grief for late wife Lola.
Recent reports suggested that Jay would start taking ketamine, after striking up a friendship with newcomer Nadine.
Jay met Nadine, who is a sex worker, last month and has been hiring her as a non-sexual sleeping partner.
When Jay wakes up at Nadine’s again next week, he is shocked to find a bag of ketamine on her bedside table.
Jay confronts her, but Nadine says it helps her cope and could help him too.
At home, Ben is annoyed that Jay has been out all night again, and Callum later confronts him about Nadine.
Jay explains to them that he just goes to Nadine's to sleep, but Callum is sceptical.
Worried about Jay, Callum warns Nadine to leave Jay alone and tells her about Lola's death.
After Ben tears into him for neglecting Lexi, Jay arrives home with goodies to make her a special dinner.
However, Jay later goes to see Nadine and scores some ketamine from her.
Ben and Callum are relieved that Jay stayed the night at home, and Lexi excitedly arranges a pizza and movie night.
Jay is still struggling to cope and Callum catches him going to Nadine's place again later in the week.
Jay tries to make excuses but accidentally drops the bag of ketamine, and Callum is horrified to realise he's on drugs.
Although Jay begs him not to, Callum insists he's telling Ben.
Ben is worried about Jay and thinks he needs to see a counsellor.
Callum agrees to talk to Jay about it, but they end up arguing over Nadine.
Jay later goes to see Nadine to score again, but is he heading down a worrying path?
