EastEnders: Junior arrived in Walford

Yesterday in Walford, George faced his son whilst attending his fight and cancelled it. He couldn’t face fighting his own son.

This caused major chaos as the audience demanded refunds for the cancelled fight. Back at The Vic, Junior spoke to George but things were bitter between them both.

Junior had revealed that he’d attended Gloria’s funeral, slamming George for not being there.

He told Anna that he wasn’t sticking around. He’d stopped George from fighting and had done his job.

Afterwards, Junior went to Peggy’s and met Bianca. Going back to Bianca’s, he slept with her before heading outside and greeting his wife and daughter in the car…
