STUART is growing increasingly paranoid and is more convinced that Rainie is having an affair with Mick.
But in an upcoming EastEnders instalment, the barman could see his worst fears being confirmed.
Struggling to come to terms with his breast cancer diagnosis, Stuart (Ricky Champ) has been pushing Rainie away.
This has led to him being adamant that his wife (played by Tanya Franks) found comfort in the arms of Mick Carter (Danny Dyer).
In new episodes of the long-running BBC soap, due to air next week (January 17, 2022), Stuart's paranoia takes a violent turn as he will believe he caught Rainie and Mick red-handed.
It will all begin after Mick gifts her flowers.

When Stuart will question Rainie about the flowers, she will lie, further adding to his suspicions.
But after following Rainie in the market and finding her with Mick, Stuart takes this as confirmation that they are having an affair.
Little does he know he couldn't be any further from the truth.
With the flowers, Mick was thanking Rainie for her support and advice on his marriage to Linda following his panic attack.
When the pair meet in the market, Rainie will only be expressing her worries about Stuart while Mick will be offering his help to help her look for Vi, unknowingly to Stuart.
