With tension mounting at the Slaters', Theo steps in to ease the situation and talks to Freddie.

Lily is delighted when Theo later presents her with the trainers she wanted, courtesy of his mate who owns a sports shop.

Stacey tells Theo that Lily still can't have them as it would be unfair on her other children, but he later overrules her wishes and gives them to Lily regardless.

Lily is soon showing off her new trainers to her friends, sparking concern from Amy.

Worried, Amy tells Lily to be careful that Theo hasn't got an ulterior motive here.

Amy's words unsettle Lily and she later asks Theo directly about his intentions.

Theo is quick to close down Lily's fears, but Amy is still worried and tells Stacey about the older man who bought Lily's trainers.

Stacey is furious and confronts Lily, who is able to offer an innocent explanation.

Stacey later catches up with Theo to discuss the trainers and there's clear tension between them. What is going on?

EastEnders airs on Mondays-Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
