EASTENDERS fans insisted Stacey Slater was pregnant last night – after actress Lacey Turner’s baby bump became blindingly obvious.
Soap bosses have been covering the 31-year-old up with baggy clothes and scarves as she prepares to give birth to her first child with husband Matt Kaye.
But as Stacey examined a U-bend in Friday’s episode, there was no disguising the fact – and many thought the character was having a baby.
One shocked EastEnders viewer gasped: “Is Stacey pregnant or is it me ?”
Another puzzled: “Wait have i missed an ep is stacey slater pregnant again or is it the actress??”
A third insisted: “Omg u can totally see Stacey is pregnant.”

One other wrote: “Is Stacey pregnant? She’s wearing a lot of big clothes lately ”
However, others pointed out that the lines between the soap and reality were beginning to blur, asking: “Their supposed to disguise it aren’t they?”
Stacey is not pregnant – though of course actress Lacey is, revealing she would be having a baby following two devastating miscarriages.
She told OK!: “I can’t wait to nurture our baby – we’ve dreamed of having a family for so long.”

Lacey added: “When you’ve lost babies all you care about is the heartbeat – we’ve had about 12 scans.”
Soap bosses have not revealed how Stacey will leave EastEnders when Lacey goes off to have her baby – though as viewers are proving, her pregnancy is getting ever-more obvious.
