EastEnders airs fresh baby heartache for Ruby Allen next week on the BBC soap as she receives more heartbreaking news.
The businesswoman previously lied to her husband Martin Fowler (James Bye) about being pregnant but ended up expecting for real.
In a further complicated twist, her former best friend Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) has since been sent to jail falsely accused of pushing Ruby down the stairs, with Ruby claiming that Stacey assaulted her at the club that day and that she lost her baby as a result.
Ruby has since discovered that she might have endometriosis. which affects her fertility.
Over the past few weeks she's been struggling to get on with trouble-making youngster Lily Slater ( Lillia Turner) so Ruby comes up with a plan.
The nightclub owner presents the kids with a worry box, per Isaac Baptiste’s idea, what they write and put inside stays secret, but Lily is sceptical.
Ruby can’t help but peek at Lily’s worry and it doesn’t take long for Lily to cotton on and she storms off.
Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) advises Ruby to be warmer but Ruby suddenly doubles over in pain.
At the GP surgery, Ruby leaves her appointment in tears, telling Jean she’s pregnant but the doctor explained it’s highly likely she’ll miscarry.
They later bond and Jean encourages Ruby to write her own worry for the box.
Ruby tells Martin the news from the doctor and insists she’ll be fine alone.
She gets a call to pick Lily up from school that prompts the two to bond.
Meanwhile, Martin confides in new pal Zack Hudson, explaining he feels helpless and reckons they need to keep trying for a baby no matter what.
Ruby realises Lily’s read her worry note when she tells Ruby she’ll be a great mum one day but Ruby gets a searing stomach cramp, her miscarriage has started.
She later spends the evening with Lily, taking comfort in finding her feet as a step mum.
