'EastEnders' cruelty, Corrie party, 'Emmerdale' pregnancy, 'Oaks kiss

By
EastEnders' Jean Slater is left distraught next month when ruthless Michael Moon goes to extreme lengths to cover up his con.

Jean (Gillian Wright) has made a number of payments to the schemer in recent weeks, handing over her scratch card winnings and savings from the Queen Vic after Michael (Steve John Shepherd) fooled her into thinking that she was investing in the boxing gym.

However, Jean soon discovers that Michael's investment scheme doesn't actually exist when he refuses to hand the money back over to her. A panicking Jean then tells Janine and Roxy what's been going on, but Michael insists that Jean is obsessed with him and it's all a fantasy.

Janine and Roxy are unsure over who to believe, so Michael goes all-out to prove that Jean is unstable by planting various items in her possession - including baby gear, Amy's christening bracelet and Janine's baby scan.

Michael is relieved when his cruel stunt makes everyone doubt Jean, believing that she is unwell again.

Although Jean's world is crumbling around her, she continues to put up a fight by begging Michael to stop playing his malicious games and tell everyone the truth.

Unfortunately for Jean, Michael callously acts oblivious to her claims, leaving her distraught that the truth may never come out and Kat and Alfie will have lost all of their savings…

Jean desperately begs Michael to stop playing his cruel games.

Over on Coronation Street, as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations begin, the local residents decide to mark the occasion in style.

Viewers will see the Weatherfield locals organise a Jubilee street party with a pop theme, dressing up as their favourite music idols from the past 60 years.

Madonna, Beyoncé, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, John Lennon and Freddie Mercury are among the costumes on the day, while the street is decorated in red, white and blue bunting.

The Jubilee party is held on the same day as Rita Sullivan and Dennis Tanner's wedding, which takes a dramatic turn when Rita is kidnapped by loan shark Rick Neelan on the morning of the ceremony.

Coming up in Emmerdale, Gennie Walker's life is turned upside down when she discovers that she is expecting a baby.

The story begins when Gennie (Sian Reese-Williams) starts snapping at Nikhil more than usual and Chas (Lucy Pargeter) can sense that something is wrong. A curious Chas then follows her into The Woolpack's toilets, where Gennie confides that there is a possibility she could be pregnant.

Chas urges Gennie to find out either way by taking a pregnancy test, so they both head over to Victoria Cottage together.

Later, Gennie gets upset as she works her way through a number of positive pregnancy tests. Chas tries to calm her down, but Gennie explains that Nikhil doesn't want children and she doesn't know how she is going to tell him.

A subsequent trip to the hospital reveals that Gennie is actually 18 weeks pregnant. Although it's joyous news, Gennie still can't bring herself to tell Nikhil the truth…

Meanwhile, Hollyoaks ends its 'Stendan' drought in early June as the pair lock lips for the first time in months.

Ste (Kieron Richardson) thinks that his life is getting on track in the coming days as Doug finally agrees that they can be a proper couple. Delivering their deli food to a Jubilee party at the McQueens' house, the pair take the opportunity to announce that they're an item.

When Brendan (Emmett Scanlan) finds out about this, he struggles to accept the news that his ex-lover has moved on, but Doug pre-empts any of his meddling by telling Ste the truth about the money behind the deli.

Ste is stunned to hear that Doug is in debt to Brendan, and as he struggles to forgive this deception, it seems that their romance could already be over.

Swooping in, Brendan later presents Ste with a fresh business proposal. However, it's not long before their romantic history is revisited too as Ste faces a difficult choice between Brendan and Doug.

As the action comes to a head, Ste declares his love for Brendan and pledges their future - on the condition that he wipes out the deli debt. How will Brendan react, and should he trust that Ste's intentions are genuine?

Over on Doctors, Daniel Granger finds himself out of his depth when he agrees to host a Botox party.

Daniel (Matthew Chambers) is roped into the idea by Karen, who has already arranged the event and invited her neighbours without checking whether he'd actually be interested or not.

In the end, Daniel is convinced to take part when he hears just how rich the Kingsdale residents are. However, he rejects Karen's suggestion that he should bring baby Joe with him to make him seem even more irresistible to her friends.

On the night of the party, Karen becomes increasingly annoyed by the snooty behaviour of her neighbour Cynthia, so she decides to cause some mischief by spiking her drink.

Fuelled by Karen's vodka, Cynthia flirts relentlessly with Daniel, who doesn't know what to think! But will the night be a success?
