EastEnders reveals big developments in Yolande’s assault story

EastEnders has revealed new developments for Yolande Trueman, in her devastating sexual assault story.

This week, Yolande struggled at Jordan’s baptism, but later found the courage to report Pastor Clayton to the police for sexually assaulting her back in April.

Her family were concerned for her wellbeing as she went missing after rushing out of the church. Yolande then called Elaine to support her after making her statement to the police.

After returning home, Yolande decided it was time to tell her family the truth about her ordeal, and a shocked Denise left to confront Pastor Clayton.

But when Denise, Yolande and Patrick arrived at the community centre, they saw him being arrested by the police.

Now, in scenes that will air next week, Patrick and Denise are concerned about Yolande as she prepares for a visit from the police.

When they arrive, Yolande gets the devastating news from DS Page that there isn’t enough evidence to charge Pastor Clayton.

Yolande is despairing after this discouraging update, but just when it feels like all hope is lost, Levi arrives.

Last month, Yolande reported her sexual assault to member of the church Levi, and he promised that he would investigate straight away.yolande trueman, eastenders

However, the process was slow, and when Yolande and Patrick returned from their holiday, Chelsea told them that Levi had left Walford.

Having returned, Levi explains that he has done some digging and discovered a woman called Delia, who also accused Pastor Clayton of sexual assault back in 2016.

Delia was one of the women who featured in the special EastEnders episode in April, which showed a number of women who had previously been victims of Pastor Clayton, in the same situation as Yolande.

In the episode, Delia was similarly told that the CPS were unable to progress her case further, due to insufficient evidence.

Levi wants Yolande and Delia to go to the police together, but Yolande isn’t sure whether to pursue this, as she is concerned the experience will re-traumatise Delia.

What will Yolande decide to do?
