EastEnders: Freddie’s shocking arrest

Last night, Freddie panicked in the aftermath of his attack on Theo as Stacey tried to calm him down.

Eve then turned up and saw Theo unconscious on the floor, trying to think of a plan. She then told Stacey to grab a weapon of Theo’s so that they could make the break-in look obvious.

Stacey put on some gloves and rushed to grab a wrench from Theo’s car before placing it next to him.

As the police turned up, they started questioning Freddie as he made out that he attacked Theo in self defence.

Freddie was then arrested for attempted murder as the paramedics wheeled Theo into an ambulance.
