Emmerdale Caleb sussed by Kim, EastEnders death confirmed and 23 soap spoilers

Secrets are sussed and celebrity visits are aplenty as coronation and Eurovision fever hit the land of soap, with another unmissable week on the cards for the genre.

Consider us excited already.

Caleb Milligan (William Ash) makes a huge error in Emmerdale, which leaves Kim Tate deciding to take action, which could scupper his entire plot to get revenge on her.

Over in EastEnders, Linda Carter is devastated with news about Mick, but her attention is soon elsewhere as her betrayal is revealed, leaving Sharon Watts seething.

Coronation Street, meanwhile, sees Fiz Stape decide to leave the eponymous street after a big job comes her way, while Hollyoaks sees a visit from not one, but two celebrities as part of the Channel 4 soap’s Eurovision celebrations.

And speaking of celebrity visits, Walford also has a Eurovision icon in its midst, with a special performance not to be missed.

1. Linda breaks down as she receives Mick’s Presumption of Death certificate. Sharon rallies around her, explaining Mick’s death to a confused Ollie, which leaves Linda feeling awful, as she explains to Alfie that she’s only keeping Sharon and Nish sweet until her mystery buyer makes their mind up. Nish and Suki swoop in with their associates to show off their ‘new acquisition’, but Linda bursts their bubble. Sharon, meanwhile, is furious, as the truth is revealed, with a huge fight breaking out, just as the new co-owner of the Vic walks in – it’s Linda’s mum, Elaine!

2. Elaine’s return sends shockwaves through the Square, as she charms some punters while putting others in their place. Sharon storms out, with Alfie persuading Linda to try and make things right with her, but the landlady’s hopes of reconciliation may prove futile. Nish’s intimidation tactics fail to work on Elaine, but things take a shock turn when The Vic is trashed in the middle of the night by intruders, with Linda’s glass flamingo – a gift from Nish – smashed and pointedly left on the bar.

3. Karen’s shocked by the news of Keanu and Sharon’s engagement. Keanu turns down the idea of celebrating at The Vic for fear of enraging Nish. Terrified for her son’s safety, Karen visits Suki to beg her, mother to mother, to get Nish to drop his vendetta. But will he agree to do so?

4. Reiss is nowhere to be seen on the morning of Sonia’s birthday. Rocky is concerned, telling Kathy about having overheard Reiss on the phone, but Kathy is adamant that he should drop this.

But with Rocky demanding the truth, Sonia overhears their conversation and, devastated, she orders Reiss out of her life.

5. Desperate for more money, Stacey turns to the cameras once more, with matters becoming more complicated when Alfie reveals he’s moving out, meaning they’re losing his contribution to the house.

Kim’s solicitor reassures her that she has nothing to worry about but, as the case goes before the judge, the verdict leaves everyone speechless.

7. Ben pushes himself to support Lola and Jay but, when Lola reveals that she’s giving up work, he resolves to work even harder. Jay asks him to pick Lexi up ahead of Kathy’s Eurovision party, which sees a surprise appearance from Buck’s Fizz’s Cheryl Baker, but he forgets, leaving Lola and Jay upset. Annoyed at himself, Ben knocks back the booze, before picking a fight with Vinny, as Lola screams in terror, with Ben realising that he’s gone too far.
