Both will be involved in major storylines in this shocking hour long special, which will change lives in Walford forever.

Halloween turns into a shocking fright night as a number of Walford’s residents live in fear of the evil Gavin Sullivan (Paul Nicholas), whilst further speculation mounts towards Kush (Davood Ghadami) being the father of Stacey’s baby.
