MORE than a year has passed since Chelsea Fox waved goodbye to her husband Gray Atkins, arrested and charged with murder.
But next week in EastEnders, she's due to make another risky decision over another kind of criminal, Ravi Gulati.
The gangster played by Aaron Thiara tried to catch Denise Fox's attention for weeks but she brutally rejected him.
However, the hairdresser played by Diane Parish surely didn't expect Ravi to turn to her daughter Chelsea (Zaraah Abrahams) for company.
Next week on BBC One, the pair even grow closer as Chelsea decides to trust Ravi.
Coming up, Ravi's son Nugget is pulled in to babysit Chelsea's baby Jordan while they go on a date.

Once alone, Nugget takes Jordan to Denzel's secret house party – which will have devastating consequences – where he shirks his responsibilities of babysitting to be with his friends.
Meanwhile, Chelsea has second thoughts about her attraction to Ravi after their passionate kiss prompts Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) to give her a stern warning about him.
When she grills him to gauge a better understanding of his character, however, Ravi pulls out the dad card and opens up about his experience of being a father.
But the mask falls when Ravi finds out Nugget took Jordan to Denzel's party.
