In a final act of revenge, EastEnders’ Ruby (played by Louisa Lytton) ensured Martin (James Bye) would lose everything. After she was arrested, she had all of her possessions taken out of the house and made him unemployed. Recent scenes in the BBC soap saw youngsters Arthur Fowler (Hunter Bell) and Hope Fowler having to share at a bowl of cereal before the electrics were cut off. In upcoming scenes, Martin continues to struggle to get by. Social services may decide to intervene?

Next week, Nancy Carter (Maddy Hill) advises Martin to try to get his old stall back from Peter Beale (Dayle Hudson).

Peter doesn’t allow him to take it though and offers him the chippy or nothing.

Reluctantly, Martin accepts. Later, he is venting his frustrations to Nancy when Peter calls and asks him to do another shift, which ruins the plans he’d made with daughter Hope.

Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) offers Martin some words of wisdom about doing what he needs to do to support his family.

Martin vents about Peter, who suddenly appears.

When he’s looking away, Zack Hudson (James Farrar) swipes his tablet.

Later, Peter is furious to find his tablet has been battered at the chippy and points his finger at Zack and Martin – will he take away his job?

Martin’s bank card is later declined at the Minute Mart.

Noticing he is struggling to cope, and as a way of getting revenge, could Peter call social services about Martin?

At the moment, he is looking after Hope, Arthur, and Lily Slater (Lillia Turner), but can’t afford to feed them.

If children’s services do find out, they might take the children away from him until he has found a job.

Last week, Martin returned home to see Dotty Cotton (Milly Zero) escorting people in and out of Martin’s house to take everything away on Ruby’s instruction.

“What are you doing? That’s my stuff!” Martin yelled.

“It’s not your stuff, it’s Ruby’s,” Dotty replied. “And she wants it removed and put into storage.”

“Well she can’t do that!” a stunned Martin said.

“I’m afraid she can,” Dotty swiped back. “She’s put the house up for sale.

“Paper work’s inside, oh – and she’s going to file for a divorce.”

A furious Martin asked: “What the hell has any of this got to do with you?”

Dotty revealed that Ruby had left her in charge, explaining he wouldn’t need to go to work at the club anymore.

“You don’t fit in with the relaunch I’m planning,” she smirked.

“Ruby must be really desperate to leave you in charge, I’m her husband – I’ve got rights,” Martin argued.

Dotty advised him to take it up with her.

“I will fight this,” he said. “And once this is all done and sorted, you’re the one who’s going to be looking for a new job.”

But Martin’s luck has gone further downhill from there.

With Peter’s offer of a job seeming like it may not last long, people may start to worry about Martin’s children.

Lily, Arthur and Hope have been through a lot recently, with their mum imprisoned because of Ruby, and now they are close to being homeless.

Will Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) be able to step in to help her grandchildren?

She won’t want to see anything happening to them and is now in contact with Stacey, who would be devastated to find out what’s going on.

EastEnders continues on Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
