Freddie takes Jean's hurtful words to heart and then he then reveals she triggered him because his old teacher Mr Hawthorne used to humiliate him at school.

Talking to Inside Soap, the 19-year-old said: "It's not been on screen yet, but it was my first ever crying scene. It was a great experience."

He revealed the scenes he filmed with Gillian were so emotional that the actors had to take a minute to recover once the cameras stopped rolling.

He added: "I was filming with Freddie's Nanny Jean and we were sat on the sofa afterwards, and it took us a minute to shake off the tears and sadness.

"It's interesting as I've mainly been doing comedy, but soon we're going to see some emotion from Freddie."

Bobby disclosed that Freddie will go back to his old school to confront his old teacher for bullying him in an attempt to gain closure.

He said: "Freddie used to get called 'thick' at school and made to feel stupid all the time, so what Jean says really hurts him.

"It forces him to confront things from his past and give the teacher who was horrible to him a bit of a talking to."

Freddie faces his fears and stands up to Mr Hawthorne – but how will he react?

Bobby promised there will be plenty of twists in his storyline.

He teased: "Freddie feels good for doing it, initially, but this is just the beginning of the story."

EastEnders airs on Mondays to Thursdays from 7.30pm on BBC One.
