WITH months of hardship finally behind her, Stacey Slater is rushed into a holiday at a caravan park.
But she makes a shocking discovery while away, as it will be shown in upcoming scenes of EastEnders.
Food van owner Stacey (played by Lacey Turner) has had a lot on her plate in recent months, from a short stint in prison to handling her mother Jean's manic behaviour.
However, in the midst of her personal issues, she's also had to put with the pandemic and the mishaps it may have triggered, much like the rest of the world off-screen.
Next week, BBC One viewers will find out the Covid pandemic had pushed back a holiday she was looking forward to.
She tells her former husband Martin Fowler that they need to use the holiday, booked before the pandemic, on the same day.

Martin is reluctant and tells Stacey he can't go, prompting her to extend the invite to her romantic interest, Kheerat Panesar.
Sadly, he also politely declines the invitation – but there's a twist.
During a conversation with his pal Zack Hudson, Martin admits he regrets not going on the holiday and the chef makes him think twice about his decision.
Stacey packs up her things, getting ready to go on her holiday, but she's flustered when Marin shows up after changing his mind.

He's not the only one, however, as Kheerat also surprisingly turns up.
The trio make their way to the caravan park but the holiday is off to a rocky start when both men bicker about who get to choose dinner.
While she may be accustomed to handling children, she's shocked by Kheerat's stroppy attitude when he loses.
The pair eventually make up but something else distracts Stacey.
When they head off to dinner, she gets the shock of a lifetime when she sees her mother Jean is her waitress.

The cleaner was last seen in Albert Square in earlier scenes of EastEnders as she handed herself over to medical professionals for her mental health.
Prior to this, she had been in a vicious argument with Stacey, which resulted in the latter being rushed to hospital.
Although it was hard for Stacey to accept her mother returning to hospital, she made peace with the thought and began to prepare herself for her return home.
There's more than one surprise ahead for Stacey as Jean hasn't been staying alone at the caravan park.
As promised by EastEnders bosses, actress Laila Morse will return to the program as her iconic character Big Mo.
