GEORGE Knight brought drama back to Walford as he settled in The Vic with Elaine Peacock and Linda Carter.

But with his daughters roaming, Freddie Slater and Bobby Beale become smitten and take action next week in EastEnders.

Freddie Slater and Bobby Beale get new love interests

Freddie has tried to find love before

But will their feelings be shared by Anna and Gina?

Linda Carter (played by Kellie Bright) tries to adapt to the Knight invasion in her pub next week on BBC One.

Meanwhile, her mother Elaine (Harriet Thorpe) is all loved-up as George (Colin Salmon) makes himself at home in Albert Square.

Few clues about George’s life before Walford have been dropped but next week, Elaine confides in Linda about Anna and Gina’s mother.

According to her, the unknown woman walked out on George and the family nine years prior to their arrival in the Square and she never looked back.

But while both young women respectively played by Molly Rainford and Francesca Henry have been abandoned by their mother, two Walford residents are adamant on pursuing them.

Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) was the first to spot them in the Square and was immediately smitten with the both of them.

Next week, his good pal Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) is just as determined to get to know them.

The pair of lads try to flirt over free fish and chips with the Knight sisters.

Luckily for them, the girls play along and agree to give them free drinks at The Vic later.

But how will it pan out?

Regular viewers of the London-based program will remember that Bobby was left single in the Square after his former girlfriend Dana Monroe left Walford to go to university in Glasgow.

His love life has since been left on the back burner.

Freddie, on the other hand, tried to find himself a girlfriend but double booked himself and failed to impress.

Could romance be on the cards for the youngsters?

How will Linda react to Anna and Gina’s idea of free drinks?

EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
