EastEnders fans predict huge twist as 'Ricky Jr's not the father of Lily's baby'

EastEnders fans are convinced that Lily is lying that Ricky Jr. is the father of her baby.

The BBC One soap aired some emotional scenes earlier tonight, as Lily finally opened up to her mother Stacey Slater about her pregnancy and who the father was. She was in tears as she told Stacey and Jean that she had only slept with Ricky Jr. once and that he wasn't her boyfriend, before promising he can never find out about the pregnancy.

Stacey confronted her daughter after suspecting it might be Ricky Jr. because she saw them waving and smiling at one another.

However, some fans are sure that Lily is deliberately going with her mum's theory to stop her asking questions.

One wrote: "Anyone else NOT convinced that Ricky Jr is in fact the father after that lacklustre confession from Lily? #EastEnders," as another added: "Do we believe Lily when she said Ricky Jnr is the dad #Eastenders she seemed to shake and nod her head."

"I don't think Ricky Jr is Lily's baby daddy... I think judging by Lily looking out of the window that it is Nugget #Eastenders," a third shared, with a fourth writing: "Don't believe Lily at all, she's covering for someone else. Why say he must never know #EastEnders."

A fifth penned: "i don't think lily was telling truth re: father of baby. i think he's just getting stacey off her back #eastenders."

"This is #Eastenders so, Lily saying the father is Ricky.. Means it's definitely not Ricky, right?" a sixth added.

However it plays out, this marks a huge storyline for young actress Lillia Turner, who has wanted a big storyline since she joined the BBC soap in 2020, replacing one of the former actresses.

Lacey shared: "Lilia is such a great little actress – there’s something about her that is so warm and so natural, and her instincts are just bang-on. She’s been so desperate for a storyline of her own for so many years, so to see her have one is lovely.

"To watch her absolutely nail it has just been brilliant. I’ve tried to stay out of it as much as I can because Lilia actually doesn’t need any help, tips or guidance because she’s just great. She’s got something that is so natural that I don’t want to take that away from her."

She added: "I found it really hard to say the lines because Lilia is so brilliant that you can’t help but feel like it’s real when you are filming it. Stacey has got her head around the fact Lily is pregnant at this point, but has not thought much more than that. She wants to try to stay calm and not make a big deal for Lily’s sake until it sinks in for her. When Lilia and I were saying the lines, it was so hard to get the words out of my mouth because I’d gone into the moment and felt like Stacey talking to Lily."
