'EastEnders' plan, Corrie fall, 'Emmerdale' Zak, 'Hollyoaks' kiss

By
EastEnders hardman Phil Mitchell becomes determined to flee Albert Square next month.

Phil (Steve McFadden) finally gets some good news in the coming days when Ben's charges for perverting the course of justice are dropped - but his good mood doesn't last for long.

Just as the Mitchells are planning a celebration, Phil is surprised to receive a visit from DCI Marsden. He's initially smug with his nemesis as she no longer has anything on him, but Marsden turns the tables by putting the frighteners on Phil.

Marsden vows that she'll be ready and waiting to pull the Mitchells apart as soon as they make a mistake, leaving Phil worrying that she could eventually discover that Ben (Joshua Pascoe) killed Heather Trott.

Rattled by Marsden's words, a desperate Phil tries to persuade reluctant Ben and Jay (Jamie Borthwick) to visit Grant with him. Will the Mitchells take time out from the Square?

Phil decides it's time for he and the boys to visit Grant.

Over on Coronation Street, a happy day for Eileen Grimshaw and Paul Kershaw is disrupted as the Lesley storyline continues.

With Lesley now settled into the care home, Eileen (Sue Cleaver) and Paul (Tony Hirst) are heading off on holiday together. However, there's a surprise in store for them when they receive a phone call about Lesley.

Paul is shocked to hear that Lesley (Judy Holt) has fled from the care home and turned up at their old house, so he rushes off to fetch her.

Later, back on the cobbles, Lesley is in an emotional state and refuses to get in the car to return to the home. Worried that he and Eileen could miss their flight, Paul tries to push Lesley inside the vehicle - but she falls and hurts her wrist.

With Lesley's damaged wrist needing attention, it's the end of Paul and Eileen's holiday plans. When Paul later removes his wife from the care home as he can't believe they let her wander off, Lesley ends up living at the Grimshaw residence once again…

Over on Doctors, judgement day arrives for Heston Carter as he faces court for his attack on burglar Curtis.

Heston (Owen Brenman) tries to be optimistic as the proceedings get under way, especially as colleagues like Julia (Diane Keen) and Mrs Tembe (Lorna Laidlaw) are there to support him at the court.

However, things get off to a bad start for Heston when he comes across as pompous and conceited in the courtroom. Curtis puts on a much better performance by relating how truly sorry he is, which is lapped up by the magistrates.

Soon afterwards, things get worse when Curtis's surgeon Mr Farooqi is called as a witness and reveals that a friend of Heston's leant on Curtis while he was recovering in hospital.

Heston is stunned by this revelation, but during a break Mrs Tembe confesses that she was the one who spoke to Curtis. Heston is forgiving, but when she leaves his frustration is clear. Will the verdict be guilty or not guilty?
