KATHY Beale is under financial pressure after paying off Rocky Cotton's former wife Jo in an attempt to get rid of her meddling.
Next week in EastEnders, her husband decides to treat her to a romantic outing but it completely backfires on him.
Jo Cotton wreaked havoc during Kathy and Rocky's wedding day by trapping her former husband and branding him a bigamist.
Desperate for a fresh start with her beau, Kathy (portrayed by Gillian Taylforth) agreed to pay Jo off to finally get some peace.
Unfortunately, this has left her in a financial predicament as she made the decision to sell off the chippy before her son Ian intervened.
Distracted by her money woes, Kathy hasn't had the chance to spend much time with Rocky (Brian Conley) as a married woman.
