Shirley (Linda Henry) has suspected Andrew (Ricky Grover) of murder for some time, and even bans him from Heather's funeral in upcoming episodes of the soap.
However, after attending the emotional service next week, Shirley starts to go through the contents of Heather's work locker and is shocked to find two train tickets. Her discovery verifies what Andrew has been telling the police all along - he and Heather were planning to elope just before she died.
After uncovering the crucial evidence, Shirley heads straight round to see Andrew to make things right, before accompanying him to the police station to present DS Crisp with the tickets.
It seems that Andrew is now in the clear, and he and Shirley are on the same team for the first time. Working together, will they be able to uncover the identity of Heather's killer?
Meanwhile, EastEnders fans already know that the police make a shock arrest at Heather's wake - and more details can now be revealed about what takes place.
After leaving Phil (Steve McFadden), Ben (Joshua Pascoe) and Jay (Jamie Borthwick) startled by putting in an appearance at the funeral, DS Crisp later turns up at The Vic, where Heather's friends are busy sharing their memories of her.
Interrupting the proceedings, Crisp announces that he wants to speak to "Mr Mitchell" down at the station… Who will be arrested on suspicion of murder?
