Kim (Tameka Empson)’s relationship with Howie (Delroy Atkinson) is going beautifully in upcoming EastEnders episodes – so much so that she excitedly tells Denise (Diane Parish) that she’s planning to propose.
She’s been prompted by Howie suggesting a date night with her, because he wants to talk about something. Kim assumes he’s planning to propose to her but she feels like it might be too soon in their relationship.
The date night doesn’t happen because Howie cancels. This gives Kim time to think and she realises she is ready to get married after all. She decides to surprise Howie by proposing.
She prepares for the proposal by setting the scene so she can surprise him when he gets home, and if there’s anything we know about Kim it’s that she’s bound to go over-the-top when it comes to making it an occasion to remember.
But could something be about to rain on Kim’s parade? Viewers may recall a couple of weeks ago Howie took a mysterious phone call, telling the person on the other end that he loves them.
He’s clearly keeping a secret that could bring Kim’s bubble of romantic happiness crashing down. What could it be?
