This month, UK soap lovers will finally see Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) get some loving action on Eastenders, when she gives into her feelings for barmaid Tina Carter (Luisa Bradshaw-White).
The two ladies have grown very close of late. Supporting one another through their constant family dramas, and with all those heart to hearts and long lingering hugs, the ladies have started to develop feelings.
When they do take things to the next level, insiders say the simple kiss will most likely lead to a meaningful relationship between the girls.
The pair previously kissed in 2014, but it did not lead to anything.
A TV source said…
“They finally give in to the tension that has been building and kiss. There has been a spark for a while but it hasn’t amounted to anything. This could be the start of something meaningful.”
The kiss will air on Eastenders on St Patrick’s Day, Tuesday, March 17.
Tina was previously in an abusive lesbian relationship with Fiona “Tosh” Mackintosh (Rebecca Scroggs) and their desire to have a child together led the barmaid into drug dealing for a brief period.
The pair split at Christmas when Tosh assumed Tina was having an affair with Sonia – after she was spotted consoling her over her gastric band operation gone wrong. Tosh’s response was to she beat Tina viciously, leading to their eventual breakup during the festive period.
This also not the first time Sonia has been with a women, Sonia previously cheated on her husband Martin with her colleague Naomi Julien.
