Shirley (Linda Henry) is overwhelmed when she sees how many people turn up to pay their respects to Heather, who was recently killed by twisted Ben Mitchell.
As the service gets under way, Shirley recites a touching tribute to Heather, listing all of the things that she'll miss about her best friend.
However, as our pictures show, Ben (Joshua Pascoe) and Jay (Jamie Borthwick) also have to give readings at the church - which puts them under pressure as the cover-up continues.
Jay and Phil (Steve McFadden) begin to panic when Ben cries during his reading and starts apologising for his actions, coming dangerously close to revealing the truth about Heather's death.
Following his near-confession, Ben breaks down to Shirley and apologises for ruining the reading. How long can he carry on concealing the truth?
EastEnders airs these scenes on Thursday, April 12 at 7.30pm on BBC One.
