Ruby Allen (Louisa Lytton) will have some explaining to do in EastEnders, after Iqra Ahmed (Priya Davdra) reveals the truth about the attack which left Martin Fowler (James Bye) fighting for his life.
Iqra politely chats to Martin in the next episode, and unable to contain his excitment, he reveals that Ruby is pregnant.
She later congratulates both Martin and Ruby, and mentions in passing about Habiba (Rukku Nahar) and Jags Panesar’s (Amar Adatia) baby.
However, she receives a frosty response from Martin, who makes clear that he has no sympathies for Jags, given that he’s currently behind bars for the attack in Minute Mart last year.
Viewers will know that Martin was left fighting for his life in the wake of the attack, which was actually carried out by Vinny (Shiv Jalota).
On the day in question, Vinny robbed the club on Ruby’s orders, but Martin — having no clue about what his girlfriend was up to — followed the young lad to the Minute Mart, where the assault ultimately took place.
Suki (Balvinder Sopal) framed Jags for the attack, however, leaving Vinny in the clear.
Ash (Gurlaine Kaur Garcha) knew, and ultimately came clean to Iqra several weeks ago, which resulted in their relationship coming to an end.
With Martin showing little sympathy for imprisoned Jags, Iqra decides to take action, when she later spots Martin and Ruby out.
With fake sincerity all round, she congratulates Ruby on her pregnancy, and reveals that she knows she was behind the attack that Jags is currently in prison for.
Ruby is evidently shaken, but what will transpire?
During the same edition of the BBC One soap, Iqra heads to see Martin, and she reveals the truth about the attack.
Yes, she confirms that Ruby was the one who orchestrated the burglary at the club on the day in question, which means that it was her fault he was assaulted.
Martin is left in complete and utter shock.
What lies ahead for Martin and Ruby?
Will he confront Ruby on the matter?
EastEnders airs these scenes Tuesday 16 February at 7:30pm on BBC One.
