But how will she react when Maddie threatens to confront Ray?
When Ray is late for his date with Mel, she gets increasingly annoyed and after Masood notices that Mel is left stood on her own outside Walford East, he calls Ian over.
With Louise’s help, Ian persuades Keegan to babysit Alfie’s kids so he can try to impress Mel but his efforts fall flat when Ray arrives. Realising his plan is failing, Ian tries to get his own back on Ray.
After Ray ditches her for work again, Mel agrees to meet Maddie at the E20 and manipulates her into revealing where Ray could be.
And as she later waits outside a pub, she's determined to know what Ray is up to.
As she continues to quiz Ray, Mel subtly takes his warrant card before meeting Maddie and revealing the truth about Ray and who she really is. After initially refusing to believe her, Mel drops a further bombshell.
But Mel panics when Maddie arrives at her house revealing that she's had enough and is going to confront Ray. Warning her that Ray is dangerous, Mel tries to change her mind. But unaware that they're being watched, it's not long that they're confronted. But who by?
