EastEnders family rift as Elaine Peacock leaves Gina Knight reeling over new romance

After her arrival, Elaine Peacock (played by Harriet Thorpe) was swiftly joined by fiance George Knight (Colin Salmon) and his daughters Gina Knight (Francesca Henry) and Anna Knight (Molly Rainford).

However, the relationship between Elaine and her stepdaughters is a tense one after Elaine tried too hard to be involved in their life.

Things are set to go from bad to worse for Elaine as she meddles in their love life and makes a huge mistake.

In upcoming scenes, Elaine tries to get closer to Gina and Anna playing matchmaker.

Despite her best efforts, things soon turn terribly wrong when she confuses Gina's crush on Zack Hudson (James Farrar) with a fondness for Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier).

After establishing that Freddie is single, Elaine encourages Gina to try and score a date with him, but she soon gets a knockback from Zack.

Gina is left gutted but believes there's still hope after Elaine says she's had a word with him, unaware she’s confused Zack with Freddie.

However, Gina is soon left humiliated after Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) gets wind of the Zack and Freddie cross-over, getting a stern warning from the Walford icon.

The huge misunderstanding leaves Elaine in the doghouse with her stepdaughter-to-be and desperately trying to fix the situation.

After hearing what happened with the girls, George asks Elaine to try and make it up to Gina as Anna tries to befriend Whitney.

Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) promises to help Elaine win back the girls by setting up a girly pamper afternoon with Kim doing their nails.

However, the girly afternoon soon turns into a fiery row as tensions remain high between Elaine and Gina.

During a frank chat, Gina tells Elaine that she doesn't need another mum and doesn't need her getting into her business.

Later after having calmed down the Knight girls concede that Elaine and George love each other, and Linda hopes that they can move past this.

EastEnders airs Monday - Thursday from 7:30pm on BBC One.
