EastEnders viewers panic for pregnant Stacey after sudden collapse
The expectant mother fell into a seizure as she found out who reported her to social services.
EastEnders fans were left horrified as pregnant Stacey collapsed following a tense visit from the social worker.
The expectant mother (Lacey Turner) flew into a rage after she discovered that Carmel (Bonnie Langford) was the one who reported her to social services, after spotting bruises on the arms of Stacey’s son Arthur.
While the visit on Friday’s episode seemed to go well, the officer warned Stacey not to let herself get too anxious and said she would continue to monitor the case.
But Kush could not help revealing that his mother was the one responsible for the situation in the first place.
As the furious Stacey lashed out at the pair – hours after she said she had been having headaches – she suddenly fell to the floor and began shaking.
Already close to her due date, viewers took to Twitter sharing their concern for her and her new baby’s safety.
One person commented: “It’s not very often I have a genuine reaction of concern towards a fictional character, but great job there by @LaceyTurner #Eastenders.”
“Omg Stacey!” panicked one fan, while another added: “Stacey collapsed & is fitting, will she be ok?? #EastEnders.”

The story will continue on Monday night’s episode of the BBC soap when viewers will see Stacey rushed to hospital for an emergency C-section.
Many have predicted that she will be diagnosed with pre-eclampsia: a condition that can affect women during pregnancy and can lead to serious complications.
After the scenes were aired, one viewer suspected: “Stacey has eclampsia, I saw that one coming.”

EastEnders continues on BBC One at 8pm on Monday.
