EastEnders has confirmed a ‘messy breakup’ between Cindy Williams Jr (Mimi Keene) and Liam Butcher (Alfie Deegan) in recent scenes.
The couple moved to Germany together in 2015 after Cindy’s relationship with Ian and Jane Beale (Adam Woodyatt and Laurie Brett) grew strained.
Because of this, Cindy Jr hasn’t been around to witness the second coming of Cindy Beale, who returned from the dead earlier this year.
Viewers came to learn that Cindy was never dead in the first place, but had been living under witness protection for the last 25 years.
This came as a huge shock to the Beales, as well as the Knights, who had been her family during her time in witness protection.
After being rejected by daughters Anna and Gina (Molly Rainford and Francesca Henry), Cindy fretted to Ian and son Peter (Thomas Law) about how Cindy Jr may react.
Cindy Jr has grown up believing that her mother died giving birth to her, and therefore blamed herself for her death, so Cindy’s worries are totally valid.
However, Peter soon revealed that Cindy wouldn’t find out any time soon, as she had decided to go travelling to find herself after a messy breakup with Liam.
This meant that Cindy would have time to prepare herself before revealing the truth to the daughter that she never got to know.
This isn’t the first time Cindy Jr has been mentioned in recent weeks, with Cindy asking Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) if she was still in contact with her.
Kathy revealed that she sends Christmas cards, but never hears back, before asking Cindy if she’d been in touch.
Cindy revealed that she wanted to, but it didn’t feel like the right time. She went on to say that she wasn’t sure she had the right to contact her, given that she didn’t really know her.
With all these mentions of Cindy Jr, could she be set to return to the Square amid the fallout of Cindy’s rise from the dead?
