In upcoming scenes of the BBC One soap, however, Jean makes a dangerous decision by calling in sick at her community payback in order to go on a date with Harvey.

This leaves Jean’s daughter Stacey (Lacey Turner) concerned as she notices more signs of erratic behaviour from her mother.

But while she opens up to her wife Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) and aunt Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace), Stacey is made to believe she’s simply overreacting.

Determined to keep Jean out of trouble, Stacey phones her doctor and voices her concerns.

The phone call causes an intense rift between the two women as Jean less than pleased to see Stacey getting involved in her business.

EastEnders viewers know that this could represent a risk for Jean as she was once on the wrong side of the law.

When she learned that Ruby Allen had framed Stacey for attacking her, thus wrongfully sending her to prison, Jean became the target of a new scheme.

Jean disposed of marijuana grown by Big Mo Harris by selling it away with the help of her pal Shirley Carter.

To stop her from exposing her secret, Ruby turned Jean in to the police and the latter was subsequently arrested.

Jean was charged and intensely questioned by the police about the drugs but instead of outing Shirley, she decided to get her own revenge on Ruby by claiming she was the dealer.

But will she get into trouble for skipping her community payback?

EastEnders airs on BBC One.
