EastEnders viewers all have the same complaint as Rocky returns to Walford after New Year's heart attack

EASTENDERS viewers have all had the same complaint after Rocky returned to Walford.

Thursday's episode of the BBC soap saw Rocky – played by Brian Conley – suffer a second heart attack in the street after being shunned by Sonia and Kathy following the revelation that he's really Tom Cotton.

Rocky had previously collapsed in November, but despite his health issues he was back on Albert Square in tonight's episode.

He bumped into Shirley Carter, who – like fans – questioned how he was out of hospital so soon.

Looking at him as he stood outside The Vic, she said: "The walking dead, what, have you done a runner?"

Rocky replied he had been discharged, before offering her a bunch of flowers.

Shirley said: "You and those flowers have a lot in common…you both look on your last legs, should you be out?"

Rocky responded: "They need to do a couple more tests, but they said I'm good to go."

The pair were then interrupted by an angry Peter Beale, who wanted his £3,000 back, while Rocky's ex Kathy and Sonia watched on.

After the altercation with his haters, Rocky headed into the pub for a pint with Shirley, where he was then confronted by Dotty.

However, the fun didn't stop there for Rocky and Shirley, as later in the episode, viewers saw them sitting at the kitchen table upstairs in the Queen Vic with two empty bottles of wine in front of them.

The scenes left EastEnders fans a bit baffled, with many questioning how Rocky could be out of hospital so soon and how he could be drinking so quickly after such a scare.
