Harvey cheats?

We love Harvey and Jean together so we weren’t happy to hear that former Doctors star Bharti Patel is joining EastEnders as Maya Houssain – a woman who hits it off with Harvey.

The pair bond over their love of football, though Jean isn’t quite as welcoming to the newcomer and Kat is downright suspicious of her intentions.
