Stacey Slater is set to face a new horror in the Theo Hawthorne stalking storyline on EastEnders.
Stacey has been through a harrowing ordeal with Theo recently, the latter of whom initially gained the trust of the Slaters as he offered to be Lily's private tutor.
This was all while Theo was secretly paying Stacey for adult content, and he grew even more sadistic by sending Stacey anonymous threatening messages, all while pretending to be a shoulder for her to cry on.
Theo was eventually caught out by Stacey, Martin Fowler and Eve Unwin, with dramatic scenes seeing Theo holding Stacey captive in the kitchen while Lily was giving birth next door.
Cop Jack Branning recently promised to take action against Theo, despite Stacey and Martin previously talking him out of doing so over fears of scaring Stacey's stalker off.
However, she faced a big setback after learning Theo bought the flat next to No 31, and Jack offered to help get an order of protection against him, and would be on hand in case Theo tried any threatening behaviour.
In new scenes set to air next week on the soap, Billy Mitchell is left shocked when he gets sent some raunchy pictures supposedly from 'Stacey', though Martin realises that Theo is the one actually behind it.
This leaves Stacey mortified as Martin and Kat Slater rally around her, though she isn't sure how she will be able to deal with her stalker. As such, Stacey realises she may have to call upon the community to help her.
