But who has perpetrated the brutal beating and will Aunt Babe survive the attack?

Babe, played by Annette Badland, has earned herself a repuation as one of the most hated residents of Albert Square, from blackmailing Les and Pam Coker over his cross-dressing secret to forcing Abi Branning to fake a pregnancy and then miscarriage with Ben Mitchell.

She has recently come up against Abi again when she sacked her when her affair with Lee Carter – and passing on of chlamydia to Whitney – was exposed.

But with Claudette Hubbard finding out about her ugly blackmail of Les and Pam, there are lots of potential suspects who’d like to see the back of Babe.
