EastEnders: Nugget tried to kiss Amy

Yesterday in Walford, Nugget attended Denzel’s party. However, he soon felt left out as he sat alone whilst other people were kissing or heading off in couples to the bedroom.

Meanwhile, Amy and Denzel tried to sleep together but Denzel had difficulties due to his steroid use.

He then blamed Amy for his own difficulties, suggesting that Amy’s scars were the reason behind it.

Amy then headed off upset, with Nugget trying to comfort her. He told her never to change whilst Amy said the same to him.

He then misread the situation and tried to kiss her, but Amy rejected him and headed back home to confide in Penny.

EastEnders fan theory: Nugget set for sexuality struggle?

Seeing Nugget feel left out at the party, one fan has sparked up a new theory for the character.

They think that the soap will soon see him struggle with his sexuality.

The fan theory reads: “I’d like to see Nugget struggling with his sexuality, the people around him (Ravi) trying to say it’s just a phase & then blame Suki for brainwashing him. Only for a few weeks before Nugget then identifies as bi and they all live happily ever after.”

One fan added: “I’m really starting to think that Nugget could be gay.”

Another viewer declared: “Nugget is gay.”
