More Slater drama: Belinda’s bombshell, Jean’s back and more

Stacey faces her first full week back on Albert Square and things are eventful to say the least, next week on EastEnders.

After finally deciding it was time to return home with Arthur, and leave the Mother & Baby unit, Stacey expected to settle back into day-to-day Walford life…

To start off the week, Stacey faces an awkward encounter with Masood in the café, and this is the first time that she’s seen him since Masood discovered that Kush is the father to baby Arthur.

Later in the week, Belinda (Carli Norris) returns to the Square to visit Stacey, and drops a bombshell on her. What could Belinda have revealed?

Frozen to the spot, and confused why Kyle is there, Jean speaks her mind. Unhappy with what she has to say, Stacey makes her mum apologise to Kyle.
