A fleeting moment reignites the spark between EastEnders’ Cindy and former stepson Junior

A few weeks ago in EastEnders, Cindy Beale (Michelle Collins) got drunk after failing at her plan to win George Knight (Colin Salmon) back.

George told Cindy that he loves Elaine Peacock (Harriet Thorpe) and doesn’t want to get back with her. Heartbroken, she left the Mitchell household, grabbed a bottle of vodka and made her way to Beale’s Eels.

Outside, Cindy found George’s estranged son Junior (Micah Balfour). He hasn’t been in Walford for long and has already established himself as a cheating love rat.

Inside, as Cindy searched for sympathy, Junior told her George was a fool for not taking her back. In the back room, Cindy and Junior failed to think about the cross-contamination rules in a restaurant kitchen and had sex on a table.

During the aftermath, it wasn’t long until Junior’s partner discovered he had been cheating again, but had no idea Cindy was also involved.

She upped sticks and left Albert Square with Xavier, their child, and said there was no way Junior could be given another chance.

Outside the pub, as Junior’s life fell apart, he found Cindy and couldn’t resist a few flirtatious comments.

Cindy was adamant things wouldn’t go and further between them but as she turned, she smirked – as if it would be over that quickly.


In upcoming episodes of the BBC One soap, Cindy gives a miserable Junior some advice after Xavier fails to contact him.

As they chat, it becomes apparent the spark is still alive between them – but where will things lead?

If Cindy and Junior start seeing each other, what will that mean for George and Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt)?
