EastEnders’ Stacey Slater to suffer major setback with Kheerat Panesar

What will this mean?

EastEnders spoilers follow.

EastEnders‘ Stacey Slater will suffer a major setback that could threaten to ruin her budding romance with Kheerat Panesar tonight (February 10).

Stacey (Lacey Turner) had a one-night stand with Kheerat back in 2020, but their romance never got a chance to progress due to her subsequent stint in prison.

But with Stacey keen to make a success of her new market venture – Stacey’s Baps – she has found herself unable to deny that there’s a palpable spark between her and Kheerat still.

Earlier this week, Stacey proudly opened her new business venture with the support of Jean and Eve. She was thrilled to have a long line of customers waiting, including Kheerat, who was served by Jean.

Unfortunately, Stacey could find her success short-lived tonight when Kheerat ends up with food poisoning as a result of purchasing food from her van.

To make matters worse, his vengeful mum Suki announces this in front of Stacey’s large queue of customers in a bid to put them off.

With Kheerat recovering at home, he is visited by new doctor Nina. As Dr Nina checks him over, Kheerat can’t help but wonder if she is flirting with him at the same time.

Feeling guilty, Stacey also pays a visit to Kheerat to apologise later on, but could she have missed her chance with him now?

EastEnders airs these scenes tonight (February 10) at 7.30pm on BBC One.
