Spoilers: Surprise new romance storyline for Kathy in EastEnders

EastEnders star Gillian Taylforth has teased what’s ahead for Kathy Beale when the soap returns to screens later this year.

Speaking to Stacey Dooley, the actress revealed that Kathy is going to be looking for love online.

Gillian revealed on Secrets From The Square: ‘Kathy is going to go on a dating app.

‘I think it’s about time, you know, she’s older now and she’s been looking after everybody else.

‘It’s about time she was looked after. And it’s about time that she had a bit of love in her life.

‘A nice gent. Who knows? She could meet the man of her dreams.’

Co-star Adam Woodyatt — who portrays Ian Beale — joked that a potential new love interest for Kathy would inevitably ‘have a short contract’, as several of the character’s previous lovers have met their demise.

EastEnders was forced to shut down production amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and remaining pre-lockdown episodes were rationed out in order to keep it on the air for as long as possible.


The final episode aired on June 16, and therefore the soap was forced to go off the air.

However, Secrets From The Square has been filling the Monday slot nicely, and it won’t be long until the serial drama is back on screens now that filming has resumed.

EastEnders: Secrets From The Square continues Monday 3 August at 8pm on BBC One
