ROCKY Cotton has not been the most honest with Kathy Beale, despite of their upcoming nuptials.

But next week in EastEnders, the café owner played by Gillian Taylforth finds out her future husband is keeping another secret.

Kathy Beale is getting ready to tie the knot with Rocky Cotton

But he’s keeping another big secret

Bobby Beale helps her figure it out

After scheming his way into Albert Square, Rocky Cotton (portrayed by Brian Conley) grew closer to Kathy Beale.

The pair agreed to get married in recent weeks but their plans seemed turned on their head when Rocky’s estranged wife Jo rocked up Walford earlier this year.

The initial shock wore off and Kathy eventually accepted to move past everything to marry Rocky.

Coming up next week on BBC One, the owner of the Prince Albert frets about organising Lola Pearce’s wake and Rocky is determined to take the stress off her.

However, his day is brutally disrupted by Jo who arrives with their divorce papers in hand, which he had asked her to sign in earlier scenes of the London-based drama.

Rocky desperately tries to keep Jo away from Kathy to avoid causing her any further stress.

Later on, when they catch up, Rocky wonders why he didn’t receive his papers via post but when he leaves, Jo rattles him by claiming that “Jasper says hello.”

Rocky follows this up by furtively calling Jo and demanding to talk about “his boy.”

Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) is then horrified when he overhears Rocky on the phone to Jo, saying she can’t keep “his boy from him.”

Aware that Rocky is keeping another secret from her, Bobby runs off to tell his grandmother about what he’s discovered.

Kathy rushes to confront Rocky and find out everything he’s been hiding.

Jo arrives mid-row to stir the pot and announces that if Rocky wants to see Jasper, he’ll have to come to The Vic and beg.

Could Rocky be hiding a secret son?

Is everything just as it seems?

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