soap on a rope

EastEnders It doesn’t take long for big bad Ben’s plans to start showing cracks. This time it’s thanks to loose-lipped Lola who, after a warning from fiancé Ewan, sinks a few glasses of truth juice (prosecco!) and tells all to Billy. In the cold light of day, Billy has a think and, without dropping Lola in it, decides to tell Phil all about Ben’s plot to bring him down. Ben insists it’s all rubbish (although Phil’s not convinced) and figures his most pressing problem now is Billy so decides to get rid of him once and for all!

Brothers Lenny …with (centre) their cousin Charlie Smith Shane Crawt My stomach lurched. In a fug, the police took me home. ‘Who else was down by the river? Did you see anybody?’ they asked.I told them I’d last seen Scott the night before – then three figures popped into my shattered thoughts. Those lads… I described the youths who’d spoken to us before I’d left.After the cops had gone, I lay down and wept. Grief-stricken, all I wanted to do was to jump into the cool waters of the river and join Scott. But I had to find out what had happened to him.I clung to the hope it had been an accident. But the post-mortem found Scott’s death was caused by a severe blunt trauma…
