EastEnders fans are set to see two romantic misfits get a lot closer in the soap next week – see the pics on RTÉ TEN!

Warning: spoiler alert!

Ian (Adam Woodyatt) goes to the Minute Mart late at night to apologise for ruining Denise's (Diane Parish) chances of a date with a delivery man.

Ian sabotaged the potential romance because he himself had failed to get a date with Denise.

When Ian follows her into the storeroom he closes the door behind him - unaware that Denise does not have a key.

Locked in for the night, they decide to have a drink, discuss past relationships and then become romantic.

The scenes will air on BBC One and RTÉ One on Wednesday March 6 and Thursday March 7.
