In scenes that aired on Tuesday night’s EastEnders, tensions continued to rise for Rainie (played by Tanya Franks) and Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ) after his nan, Vi Highway (Gwen Taylor) set about in trying to set him up with Honey Mitchell (Emma Barton). Vi is adamant about driving a wedge between the couple and she doesn’t seem to care how she does it. The grandma even went to the lengths of bringing up Rainie’s drug-taking past as she hinted to her grandson that she could start using again.

Vi seized her moment with Honey in the corner shop when she started to quiz her on her life and whether she was single.

“What’s your name? We’ve met, right?” Vi began.

Honey replied: “We have actually, briefly at the wedding. I’m Honey.”

“Of course, you are. A sweet name for a sweet girl,” Vi replied as she asked a stunned Honey: “How old are you, Honey?”

“Excuse me, that was rude,” Vi continued and before Honey could reply she asked: “Got any kids? I mean I can’t spy a ring.”

Honey told her: “Yes, I have two kids. I was married but I separated from the kids’ father.”

Vi then saw the chance to try and introduce her grandson into the conversation as she asked: “Do you know my grandson, Stuart? Big, cuddly, bald bear.”

“Lovely boys,” she added. “But bad taste in partners, sadly. I take it you’re aware of Lorraine’s past?”

“Yes, she has sort of lived a life, hasn’t she?” Honey politely replied. “But, she seems to be on the straight and narrow.”

As Vi went on to ask Honey whether she had taken drugs before, Stuart burst into the shop with a baseball bat.

“Nan, I thought you said you had an emergency?” he shouted.

“It’s less of an emergency, more of an opportunity,” she replied. “See me, I can smell chemistry from a mile off.”

Later in the Queen Vic, Stuart confronted his nan about the Honey incident, which is when Vi hinted again at Rainie’s drug-taking past.

“She’s over that now,” Stuart protested. “She’s just going through a tough time at the minute.”

“Once an addict…” Vi continued as Stuart broke the news about the surrogacy plan.

Taking to Twitter some viewers seem to think that Vi may succeed in splitting up Stuart and Rainie.

“Do you think Vi will succeed in splitting up Rainie and Stuart?” one quizzed.

Another penned: “Vi better not be trying to set Honey up with Stuart.”

A third added: “Vi trying to set Honey up with Stuart.”

Is Nana Highway trying to set Stuart up with Honey?” a fourth quizzed.

Before Rainie met Stuart, she had a very dark past of drink and substance abuse.

Could Vi push her back towards a life she’d rather forget?



Elsewhere, Callum Highway (Tony Clay) appeared to be struggling with the stabbing of his colleague, Fitzy (Sam Buchanan) as he toyed with the idea of quitting the police force.

At the beginning of the episode, Callum came clean with his boss as he blamed himself for what happened to his pal.

“He was going to propose tonight,” Callum began. “And there’s me trying to prove something.

“If he doesn’t make it, then this is on me. I should be used to this by now.

“Been here before, in the army, in that pub over the road. I’ve had so many people’s blood on my hands.

“People I’ve loved. People I do love. It should be easier by now, so why isn’t it?

“I was thinking about quitting, but what is there to think about?”

Will Callum end up quitting the police force?

EastEnders returns on Thursday at 7.35pm on BBC One.
