DRAMA continues to unfold for Ravi Gulati as his son Nugget is reported as missing and the police become involved.
But soon enough, things get the best of Denise Fox and the EastEnders favourite has no other choice but to take a break.
The truth about Ranveer Gulati’s death was finally exposed after Denise Fox (portrayed by Diane Parish) found camera footage showing Ravi (Aaron Thiara) committing the crime.
But just as he was exposed, Ravi’s son Davinder “Nugget” Gulati (Juhaim Rasul Choudhury) fled Albert Square.
The aftermath of Nugget’s sudden disappearance begins next week on BBC One as Ravi is horrified to realise his son is nowhere to be found.
He lays the blame at Suki Panesar’s (Balvinder Sopal) door and they begin a desperate search for him.
Later at The Vic, Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry) is about to sign the Beales’ contract when Ravi bursts in to share the news about Nugget going missing.
The search for Nugget later intensifies as Nish demands that Ravi gets the police involved while Suki is riddled with guilt as her own actions led to the lad vanishing from Walford.
In later scenes, Ravi is horrified when the police ask questions and then devastated when Denzel Danes (Jaden Ladega) tells him that his son is scared of him.
Denzel tells Ravi that Nugget’s disappearance is all his fault – but how will Ravi react?
Suki fields questions from PC Nash about Nugget’s disappearance and whether there were problems at home.
She’s keen to drop Ravi in it, and he and Nish demand to know why the police are pursuing this line of enquiry.
Later, Ravi confronts Denise and accuses her of stirring things up with PC Nash, but she unleashes some harsh home truths.
In turmoil, Ravi can’t stop lashing out at people as he tortures himself over Nugget’s disappearance, and Nish demands that Suki start treating his eldest son as if he were one of her own children.
It later becomes clear that Ravi is a shell of his former self due to the disappearance of his son as he keeps scouring the streets for Nugget.
Denise, on the other hand, lets her hatred of Ravi get the better of her when talking to Denzel, leaving him deeply upset.
An understanding Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) suggests Denise should go away for a few days to relax.
Will she take him up on it?
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
