Talking about this week’s upcoming episodes, Maximus said: “Corey decided its best for me to show up at the funeral which is bound for disaster.

“It’s definitely not the right choice there, so what well see is reactions from Abi and Asha.”

He added: “Asha’s character is slowly slipped away from Corey she starts to understand his true motives and that he really is a wrongun.

“Tonight’s we’ll probably see a bit of the fire on the street as he shows up.”

In the sneak preview for Tuesday’s episode, viewers saw Corey approach the funeral car fully suited.
