Stacey’s world crashed around her last week. In the late stages of preg­nancy with the worry of Arthur’s health on her mind, the mum was pushed to break­ing point when so­cial ser­vices turned up af­ter re­ceiv­ing a com­plaint. When she found out Carmel was the one who re­ported her be­cause she lost her rag with Lily, Stacey blew her top.

Com­pli­ca­tions

But rage turned out to be the least of the fam­ily’s wor­ries for Stacey, who then started fit­ting. This week, as the dra­matic sit­u­a­tion con­tin­ues at No.3, the heav­ily preg­nant mum is rushed to hospi­tal. There, the doc­tors swiftly per­form a Cae­sarean sec­tion and de­liver a girl!

Martin is over­whelmed when he hears he’s the fa­ther of a new­born daugh­ter – but his joy is short-lived when he finds his wife is in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion, and there are se­ri­ous com­pli­ca­tions con­cern­ing the baby’s health…

As their child’s life hangs in the bal­ance, Stacey blocks out the world, shun­ning

Martin and re­fus­ing, at first, to visit their baby.

‘Stacey feels a guilt to­wards Martin,’ says Lacey Turner, who plays the mum. ‘All he wanted was a baby of their own and that’s what she wanted to give him – but she feels she can’t even do that prop­erly.’

Martin bat­tles to stay pos­i­tive, but when Stacey snaps and rants at him, he fi­nally cracks.

As the frail baby fights for her life, can Stacey find the strength to get through this and be there for her?
