But where will Sonia's loyalties lie?
With Jed proving an instant success with the residents of Walford, having set up a community text group, Reiss is still jealous of Sonia’s new free-spirited lodger.
As he heads to Sonia's house to front out the situation, Reiss is shocked by what he sees!

As Sonia struggles to find the right moment to let Jed know that his time as her lodger is up, Reiss manages to find a way to evict Jed from Sonia’s home, leaving her touched by his support.
