Michael tries to convince his father that Vanessa is a gold-digger, but Eddie refuses to listen. Resorting to desperate measures, Michael offers Vanessa money to leave Albert Square, but she declines it and tells him that she genuinely likes Eddie. Later, though, it seems that Vanessa may have had a change of heart as she calls Michael, asking him to meet her and bring the money. When Michael does meet up with Vanessa, he sees that she has her bags packed. As Vanessa accepts Michael's cash, will it be the end for her and Eddie?

Elsewhere, Ian decides to show Mandy how inconsiderate she can be when she accidentally soaks an innocent Dot in her latest water fight. When Dot tells Mandy about Jane's personality, she becomes inspired and even studies a photo of Jane with a plan in mind. Later, Ian is shocked when he arrives home to an immaculate house, a perfectly-laid table and Mandy dressed like Jane! Mandy hopes to show Ian that he doesn't want her to be perfect like his ex-wife, as he'd still be married to her if he did.
Also today, Tyler continues to pursue Whitney and creates a grand gesture by rounding up the market workers to hold up signs which read: "Whitney your hot - go on a date with me? (sic)" However, the idea doesn't have the desired effect on Whitney, who walks away. Later, Whitney confides in Fatboy, admitting that she likes Tyler but just doesn't trust herself with men anymore. Fatboy encourages Whitney to have faith in herself, and when she meets up with Tyler later, the pair share a kiss. Michael soon throws a spanner in the works, though, when he reveals Whitney's 'hooker' days - leaving Tyler shocked. Will this change the way he feels about Whitney?Writer: Daisy Coulam
