Viewers believe there could be a new plot line in the making...
EastEnders fans went into a major frenzy on Twitter last night, as scenes aired with Stacey Fowler actress Lacey Turner.
Viewers were convinced that the mum-of-three – who is married to green grocers Martin – was expecting her fourth child on the show, as they spotted a very obvious baby bump while she was fixing a U-bend.
Rushing to Twitter, one asked, “Is Stacey pregnant or is it me ?”
“Omg u can totally see Stacey is pregnant,” another insisted.
“Are you sure your not pregnant Stacey? Cause no offense but you kinda do [look it] and where’s Martin when you need him?” a third asked.
Others were convinced they’d skipped a whole chunk of the soap where Stacey had revealed she was pregnant again, with one writing, “Wait have I missed an ep is stacey slater pregnant again or is it the actress??”
Unfortunately, Stacey won’t be popping out another baby on the BBC soap any time soon.
However, the show bosses have been working hard at covering up the 31-year-old actress with baggy clothes and scarves, as she’s due to welcome her first child off-screen with her her husband Matt Kaye.
Lacey announced the news earlier this year, as she opened up about two devastating miscarriages she’d previously suffered.
Speaking in an interview with OK! Magazine, she said, “I can’t wait to nurture our baby – we’ve dreamed of having a family for so long.”
She added, “When you’ve lost babies all you care about is the heartbeat – we’ve had about 12 scans.”
It’s yet to be revealed how Stacey will leave EastEnders when Lacey goes off on maternity leave to have her baby, but with her baby bump getting more difficult to hide, it sounds like her exit could be coming sooner than we thought.
And with Stacey’s fiery track record, we have no doubts it’s going to be explosive.
We can’t wait to see it all unfold!
