EastEnders' Lily Slater to make big decision amid baby plot as father confirmed

EastEnders teasers have revealed what's ahead in their latest shocking storyline, after Lily Slater, 12, learned she was pregnant.

Viewers learned on Wednesday night that Ricky Mitchell, or Ricky Jr, was the father after they slept together.

Ricky is yet to discover the truth, and so far only Lily's mother Stacey Slater and grandmother Jean Slater know about the baby.

There has been little information on the plot and what happens next, or if Lily will tell Ricky or anyone else the truth.

But it seems she comes to a big decision in the coming weeks about her news.

While details have not been revealed in full, a spoiler on the EastEnders website for the episode airing on Friday January 20 says: "Lily makes a big decision."

She is not mentioned in any other spoilers between this time, with more to be revealed in the coming weeks.

Her big decision could be about her pregnancy and whether she will keep her baby, while it might also be linked to her telling the father.

It follows Lily revealing all on who she slept with, as her mother Stacey was horrified to learn her 12-year-old daughter had had sex, and was now pregnant.

Fans had actually spotted clues to who the father was before the big reveal, after recalling some scenes towards the end of last year.

Putting the clues together, some viewers believed episodes in November gave away that it was Ricky who Lily had slept with.

Fans remembered Ricky kept disappearing to "meet his mates" around the time that both he and Lily had stuff going on in their personal lives.

Not only that, but one viewer recalled how Lily was seen smiling at her phone as if she was messaging someone - just as Ricky appeared to sneak off.

Both the youngsters have appeared in scenes regularly together recently, amid drama between Lily and Ricky's sister Amy Mitchell.

Amy and Lily fell out and it left Lily isolated from their friendship group, while Ricky was seen to be checking in on her.

Ricky was struggling with Amy's self-harming battle and he wasn't getting much attention from his parents while this was unfolding.

A few times he was seen admitting he would be home late from school or that he was heading out to meet friends - but fans think maybe he was actually meeting Lily in secret.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer recalled: "14/11/22. Ricky stuck up for Lily during an argument with Amy. Hidden a text on his phone

"Left Amy’s bday party to see a mate. Next morning said he’ll be home late. Next morning Lily smiling at her phone hiding it away from Stacey. Could this of been the day?"

A second viewer added: "We've also seen instances where Ricky would go off on his own like when they were having Amy's Birthday meal for example. In addition, Ricky has been on his phone a lot lately. Although in terms of face to face scenes between the pair these have been minimal."

Meanwhile another commented: "Who remembers that episode where denise asked ricky in the pub where is he going and he goes 'to meet a mate' that mate was lily."

EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
