But they get shocking news about her next week

The pre-teen portrayed by Lillia Turner left BBC One viewers stunned as it was revealed she was pregnant.

After some weeks of mystery, Ricky Branning was then uncovered as the baby’s father while Lily decided to keep her baby and go through with the pregnancy.

This has left her mother Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) to struggle with her finances as the family prepare to welcome a new addition.

Next week, however, both Stacey and Lily’s father figure Martin Fowler (James Bye) are horrified to learn she’s bullying a girl at her school.

But they soon realise there’s more to the situation as Lily’s behaviour is influenced as a result of her own bullying.

Little does everyone know Stacey is on edge due to a shocking offer on Secret Cam.

Stacey was inspired by Freddie’s own business venture and turned to camera work to make ends meet by making her own account on a platform named Secret Cam.

Also coming up in the London-based drama, her money issues spiral out of control as bailiffs arrive to boot her out of house and home.

Later on, Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) spots a dejected Stacey and quickly comes with a money-spinning idea to get more customers to her bap van.

Although the idea is an instant success, an overjoyed Stacey is brought right back down to reality when a client makes her a shocking offer on Secret Cam.

Stacey contemplates the offer and continues to dismiss Martin’s help.

In later scenes, she asks Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) to look after the bap van.

Unfortunately, Eve soon returns home to find Stacey dolled up – will she tell her what she’s been up to?

EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
