Sonia stunned as the truth about Reiss' wife is finally revealed in EastEnders

EastEnders viewers have known for quite a while now that Reiss Colwell (Jonny Freeman) has been hiding a big secret from Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy), and now that cat is finally out of the bag.

Since overhearing Reiss on the phone talking to someone called Debbie, Rocky Cotton (Brian Conley) had been battling with himself over whether or not to tell Sonia.

Confiding in fiancé Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), he revealed that Reiss had called the mysterious Debbie ‘darling’, leaving him with cause for concern.

Kathy was sure there was a reasonable explanation, and urged Rocky not to ruin Sonia’s birthday.

However, when it transpired that Reiss had gone AWOL, Rocky found it difficult to hold his tongue.

With Sonia fretting over his whereabouts in the Queen Vic, Rocky was about to confess what he knew, before Reiss’ arrival stopped him in his tracks.

Though Sonia and Kathy were happy with the explanation of his disappearance, Rocky was still unsure, and later paid him a visit.

As Rocky confronted him over what he had heard, Reiss nervously pointed out that it was none of his business, and he should keep his nose out.

Unfortunately for Reiss, Sonia had overheard their conversation, and began demanding answers for herself.

She promised that whatever it was he was hiding, she wouldn’t be angry, though she couldn’t possibly have anticipated what he would say next.

He admitted that he was married to a wonderful woman called Debbie, leaving Sonia absolutely gobsmacked.

As the Albert Square residents gathered in the Square to pay tribute to the King, they were treated to a much more unexpected display, as furious Sonia threw him out.

She labelled him a lying cheat as she hurled his belongings and birthday gift after him, leaving him stunned in the middle of the street.

Despite his insistence that she needed to hear him out, as she hadn’t yet heard the most important part, she slammed the door, leaving him out in the cold.

Is this officially the end for Sonia and Reiss, or will he be able to win her back?

EastEnders continues Tuesday May 9 at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
