Callum Highway is left with a big decision to make in upcoming scenes after starting his new role at work in EastEnders.
The police officer (Tony Clay) has been working alongside Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) and is surprised to be offered the role of Trainee Detective Constable.
A delighted Callum celebrates in the Queen Vic with husband Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden), Vi Highway (Gwen Taylor) and Patrick Trueman (Rudolph Walker) but his joy is set to be short-lived.
Callum struggles to fit in with his new colleagues to give him a new nickname which he is not a particular fan of.
But, when Jack gives him the task of viewing CCTV footage of Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara), his new nickname becomes the least of his work worries.

Secrets: The police officer has been working alongside Jack Branning (left) (Scott Maslen) and is burdened after discovering Jack’s wife Denise’s (pictured) affair
Ravi is being investigated by Jack who has no clue he is having an affair with his wife Denise Fox (Diane Parish).
Callum is then torn on what step to take after learning of what Denise is up to in her private life, with the copper seeking the advice of his husband Ben.
It comes after EastEnders fans were left in shock on Thursday night after Ravi appeared to ‘stalk’ Denise home when she rejected his advances of their developing affair.
Recently, Denise has been flirting with Ravi behind husband Jack’s back, sharing passionate kisses in alleyways and whispering sweet nothings in his ear after a few drinks.
After Ravi offered Denise a one-night getaway with him at a nearby hotel, their affair appeared to be going up a notch as she got glammed up and ready to meet him.
But she was in for a shock when Jack came home early from a work trip to surprise her and Lily, and he became suspicious of her dashing off to go away for the night unexpectedly.
She told her husband, who is a detective, that she wanted to visit her daughter Libby in Oxford – her excuse to go and see Ravi in the hotel he booked for the pair of them.
Jack seemed slightly suspicious as she hovered around the hallway and looked for her keys.

As she returned downstairs to Jack, she told him she could’t find they keys and asked him to leave her a set under the mat.
While preparing to leave, Denise told Jack she loved him, but gets no response back, leaving her startled.
She continued to grab her bag and head out the door – only to be stopped by Jack who told her she forgot her scarf.
Denise stood confused and told him she didn’t need one, but he wrapped it around her neck regardless.
For the second time, he asked her if she had forgotten something… before revealing her hotel key card, which she had accidentally dropped on her rampant search for her keys.
On Thursday night, audiences saw Denise somehow manage to weasel her way out of Jack’s concerns about her sudden departure, excusing it as a night away to spend time by herself.
After some time arguing, Jack insisted she go to the hotel anyway, and she headed off to go and meet Ravi.

His look is ‘sinister’, some fans said, with others even suggesting that it seemed as though it was the beginning of a ‘stalker’ storyline.
One wrote on Twitter: ‘Stalker alert!! With ravi #EastEnders.’
Another added: ‘I also don’t think Ravi will turn into a stalker of denise, i think he feels so drawn to her because she’s taken and it’s a challenge, i don’t think ravi as a character gives stalkerish vibes? but you never know! (3/3) #Eastenders.’
