EastEnders' Pam Coker is reaching breaking point over being blackmailed by Aunt Babe


EastEnders' Aunt Babe has been getting up to her usual villainous shenanigans by blackmailing poor Les and Pam Coker.

No secret is safe around Aunt Babe (played by Annette Badland) as she will exploit it for her own gain and so it has proved with Les' cross-dressing.

But Les (Roger Sloman) and Pam (Lin Blakley) have reached breaking point with Aunt Babe in the BBC One soap. Worried that Les' secret will be revealed, Pam goes to desperate lengths to try and stop Aunt Babe.

Les has thought about revealing the truth to stop Aunt Babe's vicious financial hold over them, but Pam wants to keep what she regards as a private matter behind closed doors.

Buckling under the stress of mounting money problems, Les sees Peggy Mitchell's funeral as one possible way of easing their woes. However, Peggy's family are stopped in their tracks when they hear the price Les proposes to charge.

A confrontation in the Queen Vic over the cost of Peggy's funeral results in Pam laying the blame firmly at Aunt Babe's door. Will the wily old woman be exposed as a blackmailer?
