Mysterious EastEnders newcomer Hayley (Katie Jarvis) looks set to cause trouble for Martin Fowler (James Bye) in next week’s episodes when the pair meet up.


As fans have already seen, Hayley appears to be plotting against Martin for an as-yet-to-be-revealed reason. And, as tensions with Stacey increase and his marriage disintegrates, Martin will be drawn ever closer to Walford’s latest arrival.

Scenes to be shown on Tuesday 27 February will see Martin take young Arthur and Hope for the day and meet up with Hayley. Despite Stacey insisting that the children are home on time, Martin is swayed by Hayley’s influence and keeps the kids out for longer.
