More trouble lies ahead for the Butcher clan in the coming days when Mandy Salter (Nicola Stapleton) tells Ricky about the tragedy she suffered many years ago, when their baby girl died on the day she was born.
Stunned to discover that he had a daughter with Mandy, Ricky (Sid Owen) decides not to tell Bianca anything just yet - but the fiery mum finds out when Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) lets the secret slip.
In the aftermath of the revelation, Bianca (Patsy Palmer) tells Ricky that their relationship is over as it's one secret too many. However, Ricky refuses to give up on their marriage and desperately tries to keep the family together.
During a heart-to-heart with Carol (Lindsey Coulson) next week, Bianca admits that she still loves Ricky and is willing to give him another chance - but her mum advises that it may be time to move on.

When Ricky's attempt to win Bianca back with a romantic meal isn't enough, things are looking bleak. Will Bianca decide to end things with Ricky?
Bianca's dramatic week then continues when Ray (Chucky Venn) arrives on the Square unexpectedly - keen to see Morgan again after Whitney introduced the pair. However, Ray immediately gets an angry reception from Bianca, who warns him to stay away from Morgan.
