Drugs horror for Gina Knight as she spirals out of control in EastEnders | The Sun

WHILE her sister focuses on finding their mother, Gina Knight struggles with her own demons.

Next week in EastEnders, the character played by Francesca Henry is thrown into another downward spiral. How will she come out of it?

Gina Knight made it clear she had no interest in meeting her mother Rose after she walked out on their family nine years ago and vanished into thin air.

BBC One viewers already saw Gina struggle with her addictions when she was told the truth about Rose and it was enough for her to sweep the issue under the rug.

Her sister Anna on the other hand decided she'd be moving heaven and earth to find Rose Knight (aka Cindy Beale) and became determined to hire a private investigator to help her.

Unfortunately, due to her chequered past with drugs, a disgruntled Gina is questioned by Linda (Kellie Bright) who reveals that there is £200 missing from The Vic takings next week.

Driven by her suspicions, Gina later discovers that Anna stole the cash to hire a private investigator to track down their mum.

A horrified Gina goes to reveal all to George (Colin Salmon), but she falters before Anna lies that she left the cash on the side whilst cashing up the night before and someone must have taken it.

Once alone, Gina gives Anna an ultimatum that it’s her or her mum.

While Anna mulls things over, Gina is struggling with her sister's recent revelations and heads to The Albert where she finds widower Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick).
