Viewers have long suspected that there may be something not quite right about Reiss Colwell (Jonny Freeman), and tonight EastEnders proved that they were right to be suspicious.

In recent episodes, Reiss has been eager to stick up for Rocky Cotton (Brian Conley), after he revealed to Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) that he was actually married.

Rocky revealed that he got married 25 year ago, but had never got a divorce, something which he had been keeping from current fiancé Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth).

Sonia was horrified by his deceit, but soon had a change of heart after Reiss’ words of support.

‘He essentially points out that people make mistakes, although this is a big one, and he stands up for Rocky in this situation.’ Actor Jonny Freeman revealed.

‘Of course, he doesn’t really know him all that well but he’s observed Rocky and Kathy and, out of all the people on the Square, Rocky has been slightly more welcoming to Reiss.

‘Reiss feels as though Sonia’s judgement is slightly impaired by her previous experience – when Rocky turned up claiming to be her dad, which is obviously a pretty major thing.

‘What Reiss also points out, if Kathy is happy and if it’s an old misdemeanour – is that, for all the rightness and wrongness of the situation and the fundamental choice, it was a long time ago and is it worth destroying something that is working well and lovingly in the present for something that perhaps isn’t all that relevant.’

However, it soon became clear why Reiss was so eager to convince Sonia to forgive Rocky, as he slipped out to make a secret phone call.

It wasn’t long before someone picked up, and Reiss asked to speak to his wife!

With Rocky’s secret now out in the open, is it only a matter of time before Reiss is exposed as well?
