serious spoilers ahead.
Tonight on EastEnders, the heartbreaking truth about Mitch’s brother Avery will be revealed (July 7).
Avery’s shocking collapse earlier in the week will be the subject of Thursday’s show, which can already be seen on BBC iPlayer.
Omar Lye-character Fook’s Avery arrived in Walford earlier in the week, but he was disappointed that his joyous family reunion with Mitch was not to be.
Instead, Mitch felt hostile toward Avery and claimed that his brother had abandoned him when he needed him.
Avery then served to aggravate Mitch even more by placing him in a questionable position.
However, as Mitch uttered some scathing remarks, Avery fainted unexpectedly, horrifying him.
In the scenes from Thursday, the Taylors are awaiting word on Avery at the hospital, with Mitch beginning to worry the worst.
As soon as the topic of Avery’s two sons, Finlay and Felix, comes up, Mitch resolves to call them.
Bernie and Karen find it difficult to conceal their joy when Felix shows up as their drag artist alter ego Tara Misu, which surprises Mitch.
As the family catches up, Mitch, Karen, and Bernie are stunned to learn that Avery has terminal cancer from Felix and Finlay.
Speaking about his role as Finlay, newbie Ashley Byam said: “He is a funny, endearing chap with a natural flair for conversation. He guards his family and Felix fiercely.
“They genuinely adore each other like brothers would. Despite Finlay being older than him, the two seem to be on an equal footing and always watch out for one another. Because it has always been him, Finlay, and his dad after a certain point, Felix is also protective of him.”
Playing Felix is Matthew Morrison. He said: “Felix is a confident, independent man who is clear about what he wants. He doesn’t mince words, says what he means, and isn’t concerned with what other people think of him. His father Avery and brother Finlay are very close to him.
They fight, yet despite their disagreements, they stick together no matter what.
For the length of Wimbledon 2022, the BBC soap is airing early on iPlayer and releasing new box sets every Monday at 6am.
