Sonia Fowler grows closer to Reiss as he hides huge secret in EastEnders | The Sun

LOVE has finally knocked on Sonia Fowler's door as she's grown closer to her new flatmate Reiss Colwell.

Unfortunately, the EastEnders character played by Jonny Freeman is hiding a massive secret from the beloved nurse.

Reiss was initially introduced ahead of Dot Branning's funeral in 2022 as the late Walford legend's great-nephew.

Since then, he's formed a bond with Natalie Cassidy's on-screen alter ego as he moved in with her at No.25 Albert Square.

In scenes airing next week on BBC One, Sonia is getting ready to celebrate her 38th birthday and she's over the moon when Reiss plans a big party.

Thrilled to be made to feel so special, she tells Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) that she hasn't been cared for like this for a long time.

However, Reiss soon returns and starts talking about the party… making it clear he'll be celebrating King Charles' coronation, not Sonia's birthday.

The King's coronation is the talk of the Square next week as residents get ready to celebrate His Majesty.

Once the penny drops, Sonia gets increasingly fed up with Reiss' coronation party planning, especially when Rocky Cotton (Brian Conley) makes a big romantic gesture for Kathy, weeks after their relationship seemed to be hitting the rocks.

Sonia opens up to Rocky, who suggests that she and Reiss need to get to know one another better.
