EastEnders' Stacey Slater has made an enemy of former best friend Ruby Allen, and their rivalry is about to go down a dark path in upcoming scenes.
Ruby, played by Louisa Lytton, will plot to pressure the Slater family into leaving Walford altogether, having grown tired of their schemes.
Her friendship with former pal Stacey (Lacey Turner) has already turned sour, after falling for her ex Martin Fowler (James Bye) while the Slater troublemaker was out of town.
Since her return, Stacey has tried her best to win Martin back, hoping to steal him back from Ruby's clutches – despite their recent wedding.
EastEnders spoilers have revealed Kush Kazemi, played by Davood Ghadami, will get caught up in the drama, as he develops a gambling addiction.
With money low in the Slater household, Kush turns to his poker app in a bid to win some fast cash as the cost of their rent continues to rise.
Martin expresses his concerns, letting Kush know he is worried about the direction his gambling habits have taken in recent months.
However, things take a turn when Kush finds himself alone in Ruby's club, and nicks dosh from the open till, unaware he has been caught red-handed.
Ruby finds out about the theft and discreetly asks him to return the cash – only for Kush to deny committing the crime.
His denial leaves her furious, and a conversation with one of the locals inspires Ruby to get revenge on the entire Slater family.
Turning to Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), she enlists her help in running the family out of the East End, hoping to axe the Slaters from her life for good.
Will Ruby be successful in her plans to trump arch-rival Stacey once and for all?
Meanwhile, Kush is thrilled to tell Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) he has won £10,000, only for Kheerat Panesar (Jaskiranjit Singh Deol) to invite him to a poker night.
Kat urges him against gambling again, asking that Kush clears their debts once and for all and leaves the past behind him.
However, when Suki proposes a poker game with Kheerat and Vinny Panesar (Shiv Jalota) at the club, Kush unsuspectingly arrives on the scene.
Though he initially decided against gambling, Kheerat manages to convince him to take part, setting down his money on the table.
Despite his protestations, Martin reluctantly goes along with it, determined to stick by Kush's side in a show of support.
Stacey and Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) are panicked when they learn Kush is gambling again, as they rush to beg him to quit while he's ahead.
Will Kush listen to them, or has a full-blown gambling addiction taken hold?
