Poppy day for Fats.

EASTENDERS Mon, Tue, Thur, Fri BBC1 After his passionate secret affair with cougar Denise, who would have thought that Fat Boy would need lessons in love - especially from somebody as ditzy as Poppy? Played by the excellent Rachel Bright, the return of Poppy Meadow is one of the comedy delights in this soap. Even more Essex than former Towie star Amy Childs, beautician Poppy knows about male grooming.

So when Fats takes a shine to a local girl called Sylvia, Pops gets him into a smart charity shop suit, gives him advice on chat-up lines and insists he regularly uses mouthwash. But after one date, the romance falters.

"She wasn't good enough for you anyway," Poppy encourages him. "Greasy roots, dry ends I always imagine you on the arm of some gorgeous TV presenter slash model."

"What? Like Carol Vorderman?" he asks, still a sucker for the older lady.

Unfortunately, that's one Loose Woman who isn't available. But at least he and Poppy kiss. Good job he took her advice on the mouthwash
