Spoilers for EastEnders: Martin is unable to handle hearing Stacey working on the camera.

Unbeknownst to her family, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) has been discreetly video phoning a mysterious client to get extra money in EastEnders.

However, she will soon decide to tell Martin Fowler (James Bye) about her profession since he thinks she might be endangering herself.

In forthcoming scenes, Stacey and Martin decide to go on a date to the allotments, but she quickly remembers that she had also promised her customer a call at that time.

Martin urges her to consider the money in an effort to give the impression that he is fine with it.

While she speaks to her client—who, as viewers will see, is actually spooky instructor Theo Hawthorne (William Ellis), though Stacey is ignorant of this—he makes a commitment to watch the youngsters downstairs.

Martin, despite his laid-back demeanour, finds it difficult to deal with Stacey flirting with ‘Edmund’ and eventually leaves the house in a hurry.

Later, he runs across Jean Slater (Gillian Wright), with whom he shares his difficulties with Stacey’s cam work.

In order to move on, Martin decides to invite Stacey to dinner at Walford East.

Stacey concurs, feeling let down that he departed so abruptly while they had plans.

Martin agrees to temporarily live into the Slater household after being evicted from his residence by Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters), who blamed him for aiding Lisa Fowler (Lucy Benjamin) in abducting Peggy.

Despite the fact that everything appears to be going well, Martin snaps at Stacey after a casual talk over dinner, and she quickly discovers that he is not happy with her cam work.

Stacey leaves the restaurant hurt, Martin drinks, and a brawl breaks out in the Queen Vic shortly after.

The next day, Stacey makes the decision to inform Martin everything that transpires during her video calls in order to ease his concerns.

Stacey reassures him that it’s nothing shady, and the two crack jokes about how ‘Edmund’ must be a lonely and depressed old guy without realising that Theo, aka the actual Edmund, is irately listening in.
