EastEnders' Dana for affair – and fans will hate it reveals actress Barbara Smith | The Sun

MONTHS after their breakup, some fans may be desperate to see Dana Monroe and Bobby Beale patch things up.

Sadly for them, EastEnders star Barbara Smith has teased her character will move on to Peter Beale instead.

For several weeks, Dana and reformed troublemaker Bobby Beale (portrayed by Clay Milner Russell) shared a relationship, which was only sabotaged by the former's older Nazi brother Aaron.

Since then, and notably after a pregnancy scare, things have remained awkward between both characters, just as fans are hopeful to see them mend their relationship.

But their disappointment is palpable as Dana is set to turn her sights to another Albert Square resident, who just happens to be very close to Bobby.

Dana will ignore every red flag in sight and embark on a potential connection with Bobby's own brother Peter Beale (played by Dayle Hudson).

Soap star Barbara Smith doesn't hold out much hope and knows only too well that BBC One viewers will be fuming to see Dana and Peter grow close.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, the 25-year-old actress said: "Oh I think they’ll absolutely hate it!"

"They’re very invested in Dana and Bobby and Peter Beale isn’t the nicest character on the show, I don’t think he’s very well loved!"

She added: "I think they’ll hate it but they might love to hate it."

Although her on-screen alter ego will jump head first into Peter's arms, Barbara Smith knows she should actually be staying away from him.

When pondering on her character's feelings, Barbara said: "If I was Dana’s friend, I’d say to her stay right away."

"Because Dana is naïve and innocent, I think she wants something a bit exciting and forbidden, I don’t think she really sees it lasting with Peter either. But that won’t stop her!"

But will Peter really be receptive to Dana's advances?

While this remains to be seen, Barbara knows that his rejection will be a hard hit for Dana.

"I think it would be a knock, specifically because she doesn’t really have any friends", she said.

"I think if she is rejected by him, it would be so awkward as she’d have to see him back at work the next day."

But Barbara is confident that Dana would bounce back quickly if she was rejected.

"Having said that, Dana doesn’t really mind putting herself out there, she isn’t reserved."

"When her heart wants something, she doesn’t really mind getting rejected!"

Could Bobby be the one to comfort her if Peter rejects her?

Again, viewers will have to find out but Barbara has teased this is only the beginning of a storyline and an explosive showdown between Peter and Bobby could be in the cards.

She explained: "Bobby really wants to get back with Dana, quite badly, and I don’t think he’s going to drop that anytime soon."

"I think he’s going to keep pursuing that but also, if Peter rejects Dana, I think she’ll still have feelings for him."
