EastEnders is lining up sad new story for Amy Mitchell

EastEnders is lining up a sad storyline for young teenager Amy Mitchell in the coming weeks, as she’s faced with a blow to her confidence.

In scenes set to air next week, Jack Branning voices his concerns over an outfit Amy has picked out for herself. Kim Fox plays it down and leaves Amy with Denzel – who viewers now know is Kim’s boyfriend Howie Danes’ son.

As Amy and Denzel get to know each other, Ravi Gulati’s son Davinder – aka Nugget – introduces himself and joins the two. As the three hang out together, Denzel and Nugget quickly join forces and they begin to wind up Amy.

An upset Amy decides to leave, but she soon bumps into Chelsea Fox. After a teary Amy tells Chelsea what has happened, and what the boys have said to her, Chelsea makes it her mission to confront Denzel and Nugget.

While Chelsea puts Denzel and Nugget in their place, over at the Minute Mart, a self-conscious Amy is dwelling on the pair’s jibes.

Later, Chelsea and mum Denise try their best to comfort and support Amy as she struggles with the realities of growing up and becoming a teenager.

Furious that Denzel didn’t go on to apologise to Amy after their conversation, a frustrated Chelsea once again gives him and Nugget some stern words.

Have the boys now learned their lesson, or is there more trouble ahead for the teens?

EastEnders airs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One, with some episodes airing on BBC Two during summer sporting events. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
