Viewers know Stacey did no such thing, but Ruby outplayed her and Stacey was sent to prison.

In tonight’s episode she said an emotional goodbye to her kids and mum.

Jean told her: “I was just thinking you’re amazing. 

“You didn’t exactly have the greatest example of a mother. My biggest gift to you was bipolar and yet here you are – the best mum those kids could ask for. 

She was devastated to be going to jail and leaving her children behind

“You are only human but you are still trying. You are still hanging on in there, carrying on for them.”

“I’m so scared to say goodbye,” Stacey admitted.

Jean replied: “I know, it’s the worst thing – leaving. So we’ll make it easy on the kids today, eh, no fuss, no big dramas. 

“You just go on your way. I know I wasn’t much cop when you were little but you can rely on me when you’re gone. I will take care of your children, I promise.”

With that Stacey went to say goodbye to her children.
