EastEnders has confirmed a romance twist coming up for new Walford arrival Gina Knight.
A member of the recently-introduced Knight family, the upcoming scenes will see Elaine Peacock make matters very awkward as she confuses Gina's crush on Zack Hudson for one on Freddie Slater.
In next week's events, Elaine attempts to get closer to Gina and her sister Anna by trying to play matchmaker, mistaking her crush on Zack with a fondness for Freddie.
Elaine establishes that Freddie is single, encouraging Gina to go for it, though she gets a knockback from Zack. This leaves Gina gutted, though Elaine tells her that she's had a word with him, leaving Gina hopeful.
Unaware that Elaine has confused Zack and Freddie, the awkward situation gets worse for Gina when she gets warned off by Whitney Dean, and the misunderstanding leaves Elaine in the doghouse with her stepdaughter-to-be.
Gina's dad George asks Elaine to make it up to Gina, while Anna tries to befriend Whitney and smooth over the situation.
Elsewhere, EastEnders executive producer Chris Clenshaw recently teased an unexpected friendship will blossom between George and Phil Mitchell.
"George is a former boxer from the East End, so he's therefore known by Phil," he explained. "George and Phil strike up quite a good friendship.
"That's very interesting territory, as a lot of people are wondering if George and Phil are going to be enemies. They interact with the rest of the community very quickly."
EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
