EastEnders’ star Louisa Lytton has hinted at even more dark twists as love rivals Ruby Allen and Stacey Slater continue to fight over Martin Fowler.

Viewers know that Ruby has already lied about being pregnant to keep her husband Martin close after fearing he’d go back to his ex-wife Stacey, before realising she was expecting his baby for real.
The schemer also lied to Martin about her part in the botched robbery that left him with horror injuries, and paid Kush to leave Walford with Stacey’s son Arthur.
But speaking to The Sun and other media, actress Louisa hinted there could be more dark twists around the corner.
She revealed: “Yeah I think she sort of spins a web if that makes sense. And it gets to the point where she has to lie even more and make even more bad decisions in order to try and get herself out of the lies she’s told."
She added: “It won’t get darker in the sense that she’s not a baddie or evil I just think that she makes really bad decisions."
Speaking about how it’s fun to explore a darker side to Ruby, she added: “You don’t just want to be the nice character that gets boring eventually, for you and the audience. So it’s definitely fun to play."
She added: “There’s been so many different levels, with gambling and money, and things like that, and men getting Stacey beaten up, and now the lying aspect that’s coming out. So yeah it’s fun to play. I don’t know how far she’ll go if that makes sense. Because deep down she’s not that person.”
Ruby and Stacey’s feud will take a nasty turn this week as pregnant Ruby is rushed to hospital after falling down the stairs.
Viewers will see Stacey furious to discover that Ruby and Martin are swanning off on holiday with the kids.
When she discovers that Lily has bought a load of glam gear for the holiday on her credit card, she marches round to Ruby’s and demands the money.
The former friends are taken aback, however, when they end up reminiscing about their teenage years.
But when Ruby’s scheming with Kush and Arthur is mentioned, the atmosphere quickly sours and Ruby ends up falling backwards down the stairs.
Next week, Stacey will admit she blames herself for Ruby’s accident and apologise to Martin as he leaves the hospital.
But Martin is furious when Ruby tells him that Kush and Stacey locked her in her office at the club and forced her to do a pregnancy test.
Kush tries to explain what happened but Martin won’t accept any excuses and punches him.
What tricks will Ruby have up her sleeve next?
