EastEnders hots up next week as Mel Owen (played by Tamzin Outhwaite) kisses Max Branning (Jake Wood) and prepares to betray her ex Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) by taking all of his money.
The drama all kicks off on Monday when the nightclub owner turns to focus her attentions on Jack – despite her son Hunter’s (Charlie Winter) sentencing looming – and the pair discuss investments.
But the former couple hardly make a dent as they’re soon interrupted when Jack gets a call to say that his daughter Amy is unwell.
It’s at this exact point when Mel senses an opportunity and offers to look after Amy, before she secretly pries through all of his bank statements.
Her plans are soon thrown into disarray though when Max suddenly arrives home and so she’s forced to cover by agreeing to go for a drink with him.
As the duo spend time together at the Queen Vic, Mel reluctantly shares a kiss with Max as a jealous Rainie Cross (Tanya Franks) watches on – but just what she does with this juicy nugget of information remains to be seen.
As the week progresses, Max struggles to get Mel off his mind and on Tuesday he invites her for another drink date – completely unaware it’s the day of Hunter’s sentencing.
When Mel lets him down gently, Max gets his graft on and suggests they go for business beverages instead, leaving his love interest pondering the idea.
Later in the episode, the businessman finds Mel and they decide to go out, however their evening is soon over when Mel spots Jack with officer Muski (Patrick Cremin) who arrested Hunter.
By Thursday, Mel pouts the final wheels in motion to swindle Jack out of his money and even spins Rainie a lie to get into the Brannings house.
Rainie lets her get on with it but she’s soon interrupted by Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith).
Eventually Mel is left alone, but will she actually go through with the crime?
One to watch: Monday 24 June at 7.30pm on BBC One.
