EASTENDERS fans have slammed the idea of a romance between Honey Mitchell and Jay Brown after the soap released teasers of future episodes.
Fans predicted there’ll be a shock love affair between the shopkeeper and Jay after the BBC soap said the pair will be the focus of a post-lockdown storyline.
EastEnders has revealed Honey and Jay will become embroiled in the same plot and some viewers jumped to conclusions – but branded the idea of a romance between the two “sick”.
Though they have no blood ties Jay was raised by Honey’s ex-husband Billy – who is in a relationship with Lola Pearce.
And it seems their relationship also hit the rocks during lockdown.
Fans think Jay may have turned to Honey for emotional support, with feelings developing between the pair.
One fan asked: “Are @bbceastenders hinting at something between jay and honey?”
Another said: “If they go THERE with jay and honey I might be a bit sick.”
And another fan tweeted: “Me single handedly stanning jay and honey omg i’m sick and twisted.”
However, some fans came to other conclusions, saying Honey could step in and be the mum Jay never had.
A second added: “Can people stop saying something going to happen between Honey and Jay just bc they’ve grown close don’t give EE any ideas he’s probably just going to start seeing her as the mother he never had and she’ll probably support him when it comes out about Lola and Peter.”
Another fan commented: “omg tf why have i come back to you all thinking ee’s gonna put jay n honey together omfg ?!?? not every time someone bonds w someone it means romantically im scared for u all.”
Fans know that Jay is yet to find out about Lola’s fling with Peter Beale.
Elsewhere, EastEnders released images of Albert Square characters, and shared different teasers for Ben Mitchell, Dotty Cotton and Gray Atkins.
