EastEnders spoilers follow.
EastEnders' Gina Knight will drop a bombshell about her estranged mum Cindy in next week's scenes.
Viewers will start to see Cindy's true colours revealed in future episodes, as she resorts to desperate measures to get her new business deal off the ground.
At the start of the week, Cindy launches a new bid to get investment from the Panesars for a pie and mash shop business pitch.
Peter is uncomfortable about the thought of going into business with the Panesar family and tells Cindy about his history with Suki.
Cindy then uses this as leverage over Vinny, sparking a huge row with Nish – who slams her parenting track record.
Cindy bites back and rips up the contract in Nish's face, blowing the whole deal in the process.
Following her row with Nish, Cindy hits Phil up for the investment money instead and almost succeeds.
This time it's Ian who blows the deal, after flat-out refusing to take cash from Phil.
Cindy gets side-tracked from the business plans when Peter shares his pain over being dismissed by sisters Gina and Anna, and goes to the pub to try to talk to them.
While she is there, Cindy has a heart-to-heart with Gina, which is witnessed by Anna.
Soft-hearted, Anna decides to tell Cindy that George has a buyer for the bar in Marbella.
Spotting an opportunity, Cindy tells Ian that George is selling the Marbella bar, and half of it belongs to her.
Elaine and George's excitement over the bar sale is destroyed by Cindy, who comes to stake her claim.
Determined to keep things civil, George invites her and Ian to dinner to talk over the issue.
Tensions are high as the foursome sit down together, but when Cindy gets George alone, she becomes manipulative.
After making a breakthrough, Ian and Cindy later make the ill-advised decision to go to The Vic to celebrate their new chapter.
They are soon clashing with George and Elaine, but everyone is silenced by angry Gina's revelation. What will this mean?
EastEnders airs on Mondays-Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
