Eastenders Updates -Soap Expert Speculates Explosive Romance
Soap expert Sharon Marshall, who has written for both Eastenders and Emmerdale, hinted that Max and Stacey could end up in an explosive romance. Marshall speculated on Max and Stacey’s future during a segment of This Morning (via the Mirror). Both the actors have already confirmed they are leaving. According to the report, Max and Stacey won’t be killed off, so how exactly will they be written off?
Lacey Turner’s Pregnancy
It was recently confirmed that Lacey is pregnant, so it was speculated that she would be taking another break from the soap. Marshall told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, the soap expert said,
“Congratulations to Lacey and her husband Matt, who they’ve announced are pregnant with their second baby. She’ll arrive and then she’ll go off again. But of course, door open.”
Eastenders Spoilers – Jake Wood’s Announcement
Just like Lacey, Jake Wood also announced he was going to be taking a break from Eastenders. However, Marshall said that the door would also be left open for him, so Max Branning could come back.
Max Branning and Stacey Slater Rekindle Romance?
The soap expert suggested that there is a chance that Max and Stacey could rekindle their former romance. What if they get back together, then it could result in a double exit within one plot. “… could those two former lovers go off together again? Maybe…”
