Dot Branning will be left in an impossible position on EastEnders
later this month when her son Nick pressures her for drugs.
Viewers recently saw Nick's family turn their backs on him after discovering that he was responsible for the car accident on New Year's Day.
Despite this, Dot (June Brown) has struggled to apply the same treatment to her son, and she becomes increasingly worried when she finds him unwell as he continues hiding in the ruins of Number 23.
When Dot later returns from work and sees Nick, she realises that he is withdrawing from drugs and confronts him. A desperate Nick pleads with her to help him get more, but Dot is horrified by the suggestion.
Dot is put in an impossible position.
As Dot struggles with the tough position that Nick has put her in, Fatboy Chubb (Ricky Norwood) starts to grow suspicious of her behaviour.
Later, when he finds a piece of paper from Nick, Fatboy follows Dot and sees her leaving some dodgy flats.
It doesn't take long for the truth to dawn on Fatboy as he realises that she is covering for Nick, but how far has Dot gone to help her son?

Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper) has recently taken some positive steps following her mental health problems, but she stops taking her medication later this month after the Dingle family receive some traumatic news.
While we won't give away what the news is, Belle feels numb in the aftermath and decides to ditch her pills so that she can feel some genuine emotion at this difficult time.
Unfortunately, Belle's bad decision has frightening consequences as she starts hearing the 'voice' of her late friend Gemma Andrews again and slips back into her old ways.
Following instructions from 'Gemma', Belle sneaks out of the house one night and takes a bag with her. The teen's family don't realise that she has gone until the next day, when they immediately launch a search party for her.
With everyone worried, it's Sam's young son Samson who finds Belle first, but she scares him off by threatening to hurt him unless he stays away and keeps his mouth shut.

Fortunately, Belle's family and the rest of the search party manage to track her down and Harriet takes control of the situation by trying to coax her back to safety.
