Max has never been subtle but even this is a new low for him, kissing Mel Owen (Tamzin Outhwaite) in the middle of the street.

Neither Max nor Mel are having a great time lately with Bobby Beale returning to Walford following his prison stint and Mel who is told the news of her son Hunter’s sentence.

When a ‘supportive’ Max tries to reassure Mel one thing leads to another and the pair are kissing in the street, only to be spotted by Max’s wife Rainie (Tanya Franks)

Will Rainie’s revenge lead to her kidnap baby Abi? scenes depicted in the EastEnders summer trailer certainly look this way.

EastEnders continues tomorrow on BBC One
