EastEnders' Dotty Cotton and Rocky have been part of a massive scam scheme for a while now (they've even convinced Sonia that Rocky is her dad, for one), but that threatens to all come crashing down.

In scenes that will air next week, Dotty tells Rocky she needs him to scam Peter in order to get more money to pay for her mum Sandy's rehab. However, he says that it's all gone too far and he plans to leave Walford.

Then, he gets thrown a surprise 60th birthday party and decides to come clean.

"[Dotty] doesn’t think that it’s a good idea," actress Milly Zero, who plays her, explained. "Rocky makes it very clear that he’s going to keep Dotty’s name out of it and he’s just going to explain that it’s all him so she’s not completely against it.

"As long as her name is kept out of it and she can keep living her life, what Rocky does is his choice but she definitely is a bit concerned about how that’s going to go down and whether he’s thinking straight."

Things then take a turn for the worse when Rocky collapses and is carted away in an ambulance. Milly reveals that Dotty is worried about his health, of course, but also that he's already revealed their big secret.
