EastEnders’ Sonia Fowler played by Natalie Cassidy will be caught up in a lesbian embrace with her best friend Naomi (Petra Letang).

The pair indulge in a lesbian kiss after Sonia admits to her friend that her marriage to Martin (James Alexandrou) is dying. Her friend tells Sonia that she has had held feelings for Sonia since they first met.

According to the Daily Mirror, once the kiss is over, Sonia rushes back to her husband and jumps straight into bed with him.

The Daily Mirror’s EastEnders insider says “Sonia is feeling low over how badly things are going with Martin. She feels they’ve drifted so far apart that she barely knows him any more.

“When Sonia starts to blame herself for the problems, Naomi gives assurance that it’s not her fault and heaps praise on her.

“Sonia thanks her for the kind words and Naomi admits that they weren’t just to cheer her up – she’s fallen in love with her.

“To prove the point, she leans in for a hug and then kisses Sonia.”

Martin will hear of the embrace and storms into the Queen Vic pub to tackle his wife about her relationship with Naomi

The Mirror claims, “He finds the two girls sitting cosily together having made up after their row and agreed to stay friends. When he demands to know whether Sonia’s been having a fling with Naomi, Dot is left spluttering into her tomato juice. She can’t believe what she’s hearing.”

The storyline is due to be screened during November and December.
