Lucy fails to get the support of Leon, but her family stand by her…
Next week begins with Lucy getting flack for being pregnant. Wanting to shoulder some of the responsibility, Leon approaches her.
As they chat, Lucy hopes Leon is interested in having a relationship
with her, but her dreams are crashed when he merely offers to accompany
her to the clinic.
Heartbroken, Lucy backtracks on her claim that Leon is the father. She tells him she won’t need his help because he’s not the real father!
It’s not just Lucy who has to deal with unkind comments about her pregnancy. Zainab provokes Jane at the book club by saying just what she thinks about the situation!
Concerned for Lucy’s welfare and the health of the child, Ian and Jane reveal they have arranged for her to leave school!
But, just because she’s leaving school, it doesn’t mean she won’t be getting an education – she’s going to be taught at home!
What’s more, Lucy’s teacher will be none other than Ian! Lucy is not happy
On her first day of home schooling, Lucy impresses her dad so much that he begins to wonder if he has what it takes to teach her properly…
Less than a day into his role as teacher, Ian decides Lucy would be better off at school after all. But will sending her back be like throwing her to the lions?
How will Lucy cope? Watch how the residents of Albert Square react to the Beales’ baby news in EastEnders on BBC1 from Monday, March 15.
