Love Island star Dani Dyer gets to share some scenes with her real-life dad. Plus Ruby experiences heartache and Ben is suspicious of Callum and Whitney.
Read on for all this and more in a spoiler-stuffed guide to the week ahead on EastEnders (14 – 18 June 2021):
Danny Dyer, meet Dani Dyer
In what’s already been a much-publicised cameo, Dani Dyer is to guest star as a taxi driver by the name of Jeanette whose job it is to take Mick to Linda’s pregnancy scan.
The trouble is, Jeanette is also expecting a baby and, mid-way through the journey, her waters break. Hence Mick grabbing the wheel and putting his foot down.

In the end, Mick has to give Linda an explanation as to why he got delayed en route. And he also tells his wife he’ll love the baby no matter what - but she can’t help but worry about Max being involved.
The atmosphere remains tense between Lily and Ruby, but added drama comes when the latter is seen doubling over in pain. At the GPs, Ruby learns that she’s pregnant but that it’s highly likely she’ll miscarry.
On Tuesday, the seemingly inevitable happens when stomach cramps signal the start of that miscarriage. But there are glimmers of hope when it comes to Ruby’s relationship with Lily, who in a rare display of tenderness says that she’ll one day be a great mum.
Martin, though, is worried: he thinks they should look at other options to conceive. But he’s forced to reluctantly agree when Ruby explains that it’s better to focus on the family they have.
Kat’s new venture
Kat’s all smiles on Friday as she gets her paws on the keys to the launderette, while Phil lets her know that he’s also sorted the cab licence too.
But don’t expect her good news to last, as a comment from Sharon leaves Kat rattled, with all her insecurities about Phil’s relationship history resurfacing in an instant. Will she ever feel confident to be in his company without dwelling on the past?
Ben is shocked to see Phil moving on with his life and he’s none too happy about spotting Callum getting into a cab with Whitney either.
What he doesn’t know is that Callum and Whit are heading off to visit Fitzy. But in Ben’s suspicious mind, their actions look like something else entirely. And what Ben also doesn’t realise is how much Callum is suffering – as he tells Whit that he’s plagued by memories of the stabbing and can’t face going home, she tells him that this sounds like post-traumatic stress.
Keegan is on the up
If there’s one person who deserves some luck it’s Keegan – and he’s now been shortlisted for a local street food competition.
But Tiffany can’t help but feel dejected as her boyfriend takes part in a photoshoot. She doesn’t know what to do with her life and ultimately decides to set up a new beauty profile online.
But when a friend from college encourages her to start flogging diet pills to make some extra cash, Tiff finds a willing customer in Bernie, who still wants to lose weight in order to be Rainie and Stuart’s surrogate...
