EastEnders viewers were left fearing for Stacey Fowler as she was admitted to intensive care after having her baby.
The expectant mother collapsed and had a fit last week and in Monday night’s instalment of the BBC soap she was rushed to hospital for an emergency C-section.
Terrified Martin Fowler was told that Stacey is in intensive care after losing a lot of blood – and that there were also complications with their baby girl.
Viewers were left worried that Stacey and the baby might not pull through.
One fan posted on Twitter: “@bbceastenders Nooooooooooooooooooo you can’t kill off Stacey @LaceyTurner!#Eastenders.”
“No stop I am CRYING for Stacey what if she doesn’t survive or the baby,” said another.
