But her family have been willing to help her

Freddie comes up with another scheme next week

The beloved Walford Slaters are getting ready to welcome a new addition in their family as twelve-year old Lily was revealed to be pregnant.

Stacey (played by Lacey Turner) vowed to help and support her daughter, no matter the cost and worked her fingers to the bone to provide for her family.

But she clearly wasn’t expecting to be thrown out of house and home.

Next week on BBC One, money issues spiral out of control and bailiffs let Stacey know she has to vacate the premises.

Martin Fowler (James Bye) tries to offer some additional support but a stubborn Stacey insists she can deal with it.

Thankfully for her, Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) clearly inherited a talent for scheming which his family are well-known for.

After spotting a dejected Stacey, he quickly comes up with a money-spinning idea to get more customers to her bap van and Big Mo would be very proud as he’s an instant success.

But just as business flourishes, an overjoyed Stacey is distracted by an offer from a Secret Cam client.

Unbeknownst to Walford residents, 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.

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?

Things go from bad to worse for Stacey when she finds out Lily (Lillia Turner) has been bullying a girl at school but there’s more to the situation than meets the eye.

Martin then takes a struggling Stacey for a picnic in the park where they share a heart-to-heart conversation and he unknowingly gives her the reassurance she needs.

Will Stacey ever be able to overcome her money troubles?

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