Secrets never stay hidden (Picture: BBC)
Let’s begin with Keanu and Karen first, who recently orchestrated Albie’s kidnap.
The mother and son are left in a panic when Karen’s brother-in-law Malcolm arrives at her birthday party. Malcolm was the person who looked after Albie while the ordeal unfolded in Walford and, after an innocent chat with Sharon (Letitia Dean), he is horrified to learn about his involvement in the staged kidnap.
Keanu then heads to the flat and demands Karen hands over the ransom money.
After refusing, Karen is interrupted by Mitch (Roger Griffiths), who wants to know what’s going on.
Karen tells Mitch the truth and he also tells her the money needs to be returned.

At Number 27, Stacey opens up to Jack, but he’s shocked when she admits that she planted the wrench on Theo a few weeks ago, thinking it would cover up Freddie’s actions and make it look like Theo tried to attack her.
Jack tells Stacey that due to his position, he must inform the authorities of her confession.
Stace details her actions and pleads with Jack to keep quiet, which he reluctantly accepts.
But will this be a move Jack later regrets?
Will Stacey and Freddie eventually be forced to confront their actions, now Jack knows the truth?
Will they all face the consequences?
