There's drama for Martin and Stacey Fowler in next week's EastEnders when a surprising storyline twist threatens to tear them apart...
Next week’s EastEnders sees Martin and Stacey Fowler hit the rocks when Stacey’s feud with Kat Moon starts to interfere with her marriage.
The last few weeks in the Slater house have been packed with tension as Kat sided with boyfriend Kush Kazemi in his custody battle for his son Arthur who he shares with Stacey.
But while Stacey and Kat are still fighting about the fact Kat has gone against her family loyalties, little do they know Kush and Martin, who were also at loggerheads, have now put them past behind them and made amends.
After an incedent with Arthur next week, Kush begs Stacey to let bygones be bygones, but she isn’t having any of it and remains as stubborn as ever in her bid to take him to court.
But when the news that best friends Kush and Martin have rebuilt their friendship gets to Stacey, she is fuming that her husband would side with the enemy and sees it as the ultimate betrayal.
Martin’s pleas to make amends with Kat fall on deaf ears and the pair are more estranged than ever, with Stacey adamant that she will never forgive Kat for what she has done.
However, it’s not just Stacey’s fight with Kat that is putting the pressure on the Fowlers’ marriage.
Phil also works out next week that the Slaters have got his £50.000 after seeing Stacey with a new flashy phone.
He’s fuming that Alfie Moon didn’t take the money with him like he thought and that it’s been sitting across the Square all this time. And, determined to get it back, he enlists Shirley Carter to help him.
Knowing that ex-girlfriend Shirley is friends with Jean, Phil is convinced that if anyone can get his money back it is her, and offers a cut of the cash if she manages to return it to him.
Shirley is happy to help and sets about finding out more… but Jean is devastated when she finds out her best friend has been using their friendship to dig dirt of her family.
Shirley gives the Slaters until the end of the day to give the money back… but will they agree?
Phil’s definitely not a man to be messed with. Have Stacey and Kat just landed themselves in danger?
