The pair were spotted filming on location in Southend, Essex for episodes which see their characters Whitney Dean and Rob Grayson come face-to-face for the first time in months.
Earlier this year, viewers saw Rob befriend Whitney when she was at her most vulnerable, grooming the troubled teenager before using her for his own financial gain.
Whitney eventually escaped Rob's clutches after seeing his true colours, but scenes shot today saw the pair exchange angry words during a confrontation in the seaside town, the Daily Mail reports.
EastEnders bosses confirmed Latham's return last month and he is expected to be back on screen for a couple of episodes to conclude the prostitution plot.
Earlier this week, it emerged that Whitney's half-brother Ryan Malloy (Neil McDermott) will also feature in the Southend-set episodes, confronting Rob after tracking him down in the resort. A stuntman for the soap was injured after suffering an accident during the filming of a fight scene between the two characters.
EastEnders legend June Brown has also been filming in Southend for scenes which see her character Dot Branning reunited with estranged sister Rose.
