Next week, EastEnders will revisit Stacey Slater’s past romance with Kheerat Panesar.
Stacey (Lacey Turner) had a one-night stand with Kheerat in 2020, but their relationship never took off due to her subsequent prison sentence.
With Stacey determined to make a success of her new marker business, Stacey’s Baps, she’ll be drawn back to Kheerat when he offers to assist her.
As the week begins, Jean informs a glum Kat that Tommy has been attempting to avoid school.
With Stacey on her mind, Jean seeks business advice from Phil, but he doesn’t take her seriously and jokes that she should use bribery.
Taking Phil’s advice to heart, Jean offers Honey, the new market inspector, a cake in exchange for a good market spot for Stacey.
Stacey also tries her luck with Honey, who is adamant about not taking bribes. Stacey is enraged with her mother when she realizes she’s referring to Jean.
Stacey later opens her new business with the help of Jean and Eve, and she is overjoyed to find a long line of customers, including Kheerat, waiting. Stacey and Kheerat exchange a longing glance as Jean serves him.
Stacey’s joy is short-lived, however, when Kheerat gets food poisoning from her van, which Suki announces to everyone in line.
Dr Nina pays Kheerat a house call and flirts with him, while Stacey pays Kheerat a visit to apologize.
When Ben informs Stacey that someone has paid the difference for her van’s repairs, she is pleasantly surprised, and it doesn’t take her long to figure out who it was.
She pays him a visit to express her gratitude, and they share a brief moment before Vinny interrupts them. Later, Kheerat pays a visit to Stacey and gives her a kiss on the cheek, making her smitten. Is this going to be the newest couple in Walford?
