Lily fears for her baby after Whitney's terrible loss in EastEnders

Lily Slater (Lillia Turner) has been left worried about her unborn baby, after learning about Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) tragic loss in EastEnders.

Whitney made the difficult decision to terminate her pregnancy last week, after finding out that her baby had Edwards’ Syndrome: a condition that affects a baby’s chromosomes.

The likelihood of a baby living past birth with the condition is very slim, with only 13 in 100 babies reaching their first birthday.

In Friday’s (March 3) episode, Whitney delivered baby Peach in heartbreaking scenes, with news of the loss getting back to Albert Square and pregnant Lily.

The 12-year-old, who discovered she was pregnant on New Year’s Day, had battled over whether or not to keep her baby, but eventually decided that she would.

Following Whitney’s loss, it was down to mum Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) to reassure her that everything with her pregnancy would be fine, and that Whitney’s baby had a very rare condition.

She promised that Lily and her baby would be just fine, and that Lily should go and get ready for school.

Feeling slightly better, Lily admitted that there was something else bothering her: She had grown out of her school skirts.

She confessed that she felt bad after what had happened to Whitney, but that she couldn’t help being embarrassed going to school, especially when her skirts didn’t fit.

Stacey allowed her to instead study from home and promised to sort it for her.

However, we all know how expensive school uniforms can be, and with the Slaters already struggling in the cost of living crisis, will Stacey manage to keep her promise?

EastEnders continues Tuesday March 7 at 7:30pm on BBC One.
