But she finds out Harvey is ready to move on next week in EastEnders

With their failed engagement and marriage still on her mind, Jean Slater has tried to keep her chin up and focus on her well-being.

As BBC One viewers may remember, the character played by Gillian Wright was ready to tie the knot with the cabbie (portrayed by Ross Boatman) during a manic episode.

Things took a turn when she wandered off to Southend alone and almost drowned before being saved by her daughter Stacey.

Since then, Jean has kept her distance from Harvey, going as far as to avoid him altogether upon returning to Albert Square.

Harvey has gotten the hint their relationship wouldn’t be working out after that.

Next week, believing it’s time for him to turn a leaf, Mitch Baker, Dotty Cotton and Freddie Slater encourage him to join a dating app.

But when Jean finds out that Harvey’s been recommended to get back in the dating scene, she feels jealous.

Later on, her jealousy turns into sadness as she gets wind of Harvey’s developing love life.

Instead of admitting she is still harbouring feelings for the driver, Jean bottles everything up.

She tries her hardest to deny her own feelings for Harvey.

Unfortunately for her, reality catches up quickly when Jean overhears Mitch, Rocky and Harvey discussing Sophia.

Jean finds out Sophia is none other than Harvey’s dating app match.

As mentioned above, Jean and Harvey were once engaged after she popped the question during a manic episode triggered by her bipolar disorder.

While they were over the moon and ready to walk down the aisle together, Jean’s daughter Stacey picked up on all the warning signs.

Much like the cleaner, the owner of Stacey’s Baps also suffers from bipolar disorder and was aware her mother wasn’t fully aware of what she was doing.

Jean took some time away from Albert Square after coming to the realisation she was endangering her loved ones with her behaviour.

Stacey found her during a trip to a caravan park – where Jean was staying with Big Mo Slater.

Will Jean come clean to Harvey about what she feels?

Or will she keep it all to herself?

Does Harvey feel the same way?

How will this affect her mental health?

EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday on BBC One.
