HARVEY Monroe has become infatuated with a mystery woman he is chatting to online.
But when his friends get involved, next week in EastEnders, her real identity comes to light.
Harvey Monroe has become infatuated with a woman named Sophia
But his friends believe he’s being catfished
Rocky, Mitch, Freddie and Bobby all do some digging on Sophia
The Walford cabbie played by Ross Boatman has displayed troubling behaviour, consumed by his budding romance with a woman named Sophia.
Harvey was even ghosted by his love interest, leading his nearest and dearest to believe he’s being catfished.
Convinced Sophia isn’t who she says she is, Rocky Cotton (portrayed by Brian Conley) decides to do some digging on her in upcoming scenes of the BBC One soap.
But he quickly gets desperate, not knowing where to even begin, prompting Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) to step in and do some research of his own.
The lad soon notices another red flag – Harvey has sent Sophia money.
Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) also takes part in the hunt for Sophia.
After hatching a plan, he manages to get hold of Harvey’s phone, screenshotting as much information as he can.
Both youngsters then keep Rocky and Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) in the loop… before Freddie makes an interesting discovery.
While his findings on Sophia will have to wait, the truth doesn’t stop unravelling there.
Following Freddie’s shock discovery, Rocky wonders if they should tell Harvey what they’ve discovered.
However, Dotty Cotton (Milly Zero) barges in and learns what’s happened.
Rocky makes his decision after her entrance and believes they have no other choice but to tell Harvey about Sophia.
Blissfully unaware that he’s highly likely being scammed, Harvey gets ready to send more money to Sophia.
Thankfully for him, Rocky, Mitch, Freddie and Bobby get to him just in time to tell him everything.
Harvey became single following Jean Slater’s mental health crisis.
The pair were engaged and ready to tie the knot after the cleaner played by Gillian Wright popped the question amid a manic episode triggered by her bipolar disorder.
Jean was taken to hospital after almost drowning, which left her relationship with Harvey on the rocks.
Since then, Harvey has been trying to move on, more particularly after Jean’s return to Albert Square.
How will he react to the truth about Sophia?
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday.
