Vincent to leave Walford?!

EastEnders twists just keep coming as we learn more and more about Vincent. With suspicions growing, the pressure continues to mount. Will the whole truth ever come out? 

Once Claudette confirmed her suspicions about Vincent, Kim is beside herself, but sides with her husband in the end. She tells him that he has to straighten up and do the right thing. Will her ultimatum be enough to convince Vincent to put his own family first? Will the couple survive the holidays?

One thing is certain, Claudette isn’t impressed with her son and tells Vincent she wants nothing more to do with him. But does this have more to do with the drugs or the fact that he has so far not been able ‘take care of Phil’ as she has requested?

A number of plots have been building, and the Hubbards are on a roller coaster. It certainly looks like Vincent’s drama will reach a shocking climax over Christmas and carry into the New Year.

EastEnders airs these scenes the week of December 14 on BBC One and BBC One HD
