Is Albert Square’s big baby secret about to finally be exposed? Viewers know, of course, that Martin Fowler (James Bye) is not the father of Stacey’s son Arthur, but is the true dad – market-stall holder Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) – about to tell his buddy that he’s the daddy?
Scenes to be shown on Thursday 28 January will see a guilty Kush put in an awkward position when he asks Kush to help him look after Arthur for the morning while he tries to find a mother and baby unit for an unwell Stacey (Lacey Turner).
Shabnam (Rakhee Thakrar), who now knows the truth about Arthur’s paternity, shares her concerns with Kush. But will spending time with his son lead to Kush telling Martin the truth? And how would Martin react were to find out – in the midst of all his stress surrounding Stacey’s deteriorating mental health – that he isn’t related to the newborn after all?
