George Knight makes peace with mum Gloria Knight during tear-jerking scenes in tonight's EastEnders at 7.30pm (see our TV Guide for full listings).

After suffering a heart attack in the middle of Eddie Knight's murder trial, Gloria regains consciousness in hospital.

She asks George if he can go and retrieve a box from her flat which contains important information about his childhood.

George's world was shattered after learning Eddie had murdered his biological dad Henry Kofi Asare in a racially motivated attack. Since then George has been desperate to find out more about his birth parents.

Arriving at Gloria's place, George is able to locate the box and is overwhelmed by memories of his upbringing.

Afterwards, George heads to the Boxing Den, where he encounters Phil Mitchell who's also experiencing a family crisis.

Phil reveals he's just discovered that his son Ben has been sentenced to six years in an American prison for a past crime - meaning he won't be back in Walford any time soon.

Shattered by this realisation, Phil points out how precious family is and persuades George to return to the hospital to make things right with Gloria.

As mum and son reunite, George joins Gloria on her bed as they take an emotional trip down memory lane and listen to the recorded lullaby from George's birth mother.
