EastEnders ' Peter Beale and Ash Panesar take their fledgling romance to the next level in upcoming scenes, while Peter's little brother Bobby goes on a date.

Troubled teen Bobby is currently struggling with his OCD and he is only feeling worse now that his dad Ian Beale is gone - and he does not find it easy to bond with people and make friends.

It is clear as day to Kim Fox that Peter and Ash fancy each other so she gives them some daytime date ideas, and despite Ash’s protests they give it ago.

Once back, Peter flirts with Ash but as things sizzle, they are interrupted by Suki Panesar who dampens the mood and so Peter hastily exits.

Later, Ash fills Kim in on the date being cut short as Peter goes to see Suki wanting to know if she’s going to be a problem.

Kim sets up shop at The Albert and summons Ash, when Peter makes an appearance to apologise, and they agree to try again, sharing a passionate kiss just as Ash's ex Iqra arrives.

Later, Kim puts her master plan for setting up Iqra and Mila into action.

Ash tells Peter he is being too hard on Bobby, and says she has noticed that Bobby seems lonely, but Peter reminds her he has a lot of issues.

As he heads out, Ash realises Bobby has overheard their conversation – she feels terrible but later tells him that there is someone out there for him, if he is brave enough to look.

Kim encourages Iqra to be confident about pursuing Mila before setting her sights on matching Bobby, who is more surprised than anyone when he sees he is matched with someone on an app.

Later, an aftershave drenched Bobby is on his date with Jade, extremely nervous - but how will it go?
