Stacey’s upset when Carmel brands her an untrustworthy motherÉ
The Fowler family are in bits this week with toddler Arthur’s life hanging in the balance.
And his mum, Stacey, is feeling it most. Not only has she recently learnt her beloved boy is at high-risk of inheriting a serious heart condition from his dad Kush, he’s now in hospital on the critical list. But what made the toddler lose consciousness?
At the hospital, Stacey is struggling with the stress and desperate for answers. After Kush heads home to leave Stacey with her husband Martin, the Fowlers are then seen by the doctor. What will the tests reveal? Has Kush’s Brugada syndrome struck – or is something else wrong with Arthur?
Back in Walford, Carmel is also reeling. She recently almost lost her son Kush – is the syndrome about to take her grandson’s life? Carmel lays out her fears about the Fowlers to Kush who urges her not to sour the tentative relationship she’s built with Stacey.
Later, thankfully Arthur’s discharged, and Carmel offers to pitch in. Knackered Stacey’s grateful until she realises why Carmel’s so keen to help: she doesn’t trust Stacey with Arthur! As tempers flare, Stacey breaks down on Carmel…
With their bad blood patched up, Carmel’s delighted when Stacey asks her to mind Arthur. Alone with her grandson, Carmel soon makes a discovery that brings her worries flooding back. Unable to ignore her concerns, Carmel takes serious action, which is sure to spark all-out war
