EastEnders spoiler: Honey Mitchell starts affair with Jack Branning after Billy’s plan backfires

Things rarely go to plan in Albert Square – especially when it comes to romance.

And, to prove it, EastEnders viewers will see an unlikely affair take place between Honey Mitchell and Jack Branning, later this month.

In scenes to be broadcast over the coming weeks, the odd pair will develop an unlikely bond after being pushed together by Tina Carter.

Ironically, her aim was to help Billy win his wife back, but the plan spectacularly backfires in typical Walford fashion.

The drama comes after Tina (Luisa Bradshaw-White) convinces Billy that the best way to salvage his relationship is to make Honey jealous.

Foolishly, he agrees, and together they convince Jack to take Honey to the re-opening of the E20 nightclub.

He reluctantly concedes – but only because he wants to make fellow resident Mel Owen jealous.

The perfect storm? You bet. Not least because Tina insists that Billy should get Honey drunk.

Before long, Honey is hammered- and flirting outrageously with Jack, who returns the favour. But does it lead to a new courtship? Or is it all just a game?

Poor Billy is given the cold shoulder and finds himself in a worse situation than before, meaning he’s even more annoyed with Tina.

Especially as their fling is what caused all the drama in the first place.
