This stylised new trailer for BBC soap opera EastEnders suggests that Michelle and Preston’s secret romance is about to become public knowledge.

The 40s long promo – put online by the beeb earlier today – shows Preston (Martin Anzor) running up to Michelle (Jenna Russell) in the street before the pair share a kiss in front of shocked onlookers including Michelle’s brother Martin (James Bye) and niece Bex (Jasmine Armfield).

Michelle became romantically involved with Preston in Florida – in the process breaking the law as, at 17, he is below the state’s age of consent which is 18. Michelle opened up to best friend Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) about what had really precipitated her Christmas Eve return to Walford in a special episode of the soap in January.

The situation has since become even more complicated after Preston wooed Bex into bed after being rejected by Michelle while Sharon’s son Denny (Bleu Landau) is currently blackmailing Michelle after catching her canoodling with Preston.

Now the BBC is teasing there is more drama on the horizon courtesy of Michelle and Preston’s relationship…
