Lacey Turner is back full-time as Stacey, who’s found a new friend during her time in prison. Plus Tiff seems interested in Keegan again, and there’s a big baby surprise on the Square.
Read on for full EastEnders spoilers in the week of 25-29 October 2021.
Stacey has big news for Martin
Jean is busy planning a party for Stacey’s return, but Martin isn’t finding much reason to celebrate, as her release from prison means that the kids will be moving back home.
Later, at Walford East, the party is getting under way and Martin will be left feeling on edge when Stacey asks if she can speak to him later.

Confidante Zack then encourages Martin to tell her how he really feels. But what Martin isn’t expecting is for Stacey to then drop a huge bombshell just at the moment when he’s about to open his heart.
Suki v the Slaters
The boiler at the Slaters’ house needs fixing but when landlord Kheerat refuses to help, Stacey steals his keys. She and the family then break into the Panesars’ to shower, but when Suki later arrives home she quickly realises that someone has been in her home. And after noticing that Jags’s watch is missing, she’s quick to blame the Slaters.
The situation then intensifies on Thursday when Stacey gets a visit from her probation officer, who gets a shock when Suki turns up out of the blue and accuses Stacey of stealing. So will Stace end up back in the slammer as a result?
Meet Stacey’s prison buddy Eve
There’s a new character in town: a friend of Stacey’s from prison by the name of Eve, who makes her debut in next Friday’s episode.
She’s being described by show bosses as “tough but fair” and will be seen first flirting with Shirley in the Prince Albert. But it won’t be long before she’s happily embracing Stacey – something that leaves Jean looking less than impressed.
Will Harvey get his job back?
Harvey is feeling nonplussed about his employment prospects, so Aaron vows to talk to Kat and get him his job back. Dana, meanwhile, tries a different approach and begs Ash to forgive her dad.
But Aaron is going for the jugular where Kat is concerned and ends up threatening her with unfair dismissal when it comes to what happened to his father.
A reunion for Tiffany and Keegan?
Tiffany has a date with Aaron at Ruby’s, but the night doesn’t go as planned and, at the evening’s end, her shoe's heel snaps just as she’s leaving. By this point, Aaron is no longer present, so Keegan offers to piggyback her home.
The trouble is, Liam spots them and rushes over, immediately issuing Keegan with a warning to back off. But it seems that there are still sparks flying between Tiff and her ex…
Two men, Sharon and a baby
Sharon is left rolling her eyes when she’s approached by a guy called Neil, whose daughter has been left heartbroken by Zack. She covers for him, but following this incident, Zack himself crosses paths with Neil, but lies and pretends to be Martin.
You can then expect this fib to result in an unfortunate case of mistaken identity on Friday. But what Sharon, Martin nor Zack fail to see coming is the appearance of a one-year-old baby left on their doorstep with a note that reads, “Alyssa is yours, please take care of her.”
