Stacey says: “Come on, if it’s Ricky just tell me. Not Janine’s brother, Ricky Junior, Jack’s son.

“Please darling, at least then I will know that you have not been abused and groomed by some pervert.”

When Lily doesn’t answer, Jean adds: “You know love, we love you very much and I am going to tell you a secret.

“Your mum loves you more than anyone else in the whole world, and as much as you want it to, and we all want it to, this isn’t going to go away.

“You know that, you are not a child, in face I think you are more grown up than me sometimes, so please put your mum’s mind at rest.”

Lily responds: “He’s not my boyfriend. We only did it once.”

Stacey asks if Lily is referring to Ricky Junior, which she confirms and adds: “But he can never find out.”

BBC EastEnders is on BBC One at 7.30pm tonight, and BBC iPlayer.
