EastEnders spoilers: Kathy Beale ARRESTED as Ben sets her up with diamond necklace?


Since returning to Walford, Ben Mitchell (played by Matt Bowden) has been out to prove his worth and subsequently causing a lot of trouble in EastEnders.  

But it seems it’s his mother Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) who could get caught up with the police when they find out about the incredibly expensive piece of jewellery she owned. 

Last year after the heist, viewers will remember how Ben gave the cafe owner a diamond necklace, one she thought was a costume jewellery piece. 

More recently, Kathy learned that the necklace was in fact one hundred percent genuine after Chantelle Atkins (Jessica Plummer) questioned its authenticity. 

Realising she could be holding a lot of money in her hands, Kathy decided to go and get the item valued and was shocked to learn it could fetch £250,000 with providence or £10,000 without it. 

Struggling to decided whether or not to sell it, scenes showed her standing outside The Albert and looking at the For Let sign wistfully. 

And it wasn’t long before she was back in the pawn shop accepting the lower offer. 

But, EastEnders fans are convinced the law is going to catch up with Kathy. 

Those who watch the soap at home know how Ben stole the necklace from gangster Ciara Maguire and many are suggesting Ben’s theft will come back to haunt Kathy just after she has re-opened the bar. 

Taking to Twitter to comment, one said: “Anyone else think the necklace is going to come back to haunt Kathy. Are they sowing the seeds for her to go to prison?” 

“It will come back to haunt her when they discover she sold a stolen necklace,” someone else wrote. 

But others surmised how Kathy’s new bar could actually be the gay bar producer Kate Oates revealed would be opening soon. 

“Really pleased Kathy will own the gay bar and she deserves it. Hopefully Ben won’t be involved in the bar as I don’t want him to use his mother for financial gain. Fingers crossed we’ll see her working there instead of just being the owner,” a fan remarked. 

Elsewhere in E20, there is the possibility Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) could find out she is pregnant. 

It comes as Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper) revealed she and Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) were going to be having a baby together after their fleeting romance. 

Drowning his sorrows over the unplanned news, Sharon was summoned to speak some sense into him and one thing led to another. 

Scenes during last night’s instalment saw the pair reignite old flames and those watching predicted an almighty twist which would see both Louise and Sharon pregnant with Keanu’s children. 

Should this be the case, the truth about Sharon and Keanu’s forbidden affair will undoubtedly be exposed. 

And Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) is going to be absolutely furious. 

EastEnders returns to BBC One tomorrow at 7.30pm on BBC One.
