After a touching chat with Lexi, Jay invited Nadine to his, with the hope of getting a plan in place.

Faced with Nadine again, Jay was unable to hold back his anger and berated her for telling Lexi before she'd had a chance to.

He also questioned the baby’s paternity, but Nadine turned the tables and insisted they could pay for a paternity test if that's what he wanted.

She even went on to reveal that they're expecting a baby girl and presented him with a scan picture.

"We all know Jay is a good man, as Perry Fenwick [Billy] calls him. He is a good man and he certainly lives up to responsibility. I think he gets sucked into this dream, he buys into it and he absolutely has no reason to not believe it.

"He is up for all of it and he steps up when called upon because he is a good man."

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
