EastEnders fans plead for Stacey to see sense amid near kiss with Max
Ten years after their affair was exposed in a Christmas Day special, EastEnders stalwarts Stacey Fowler and Max Branning almost came together once again on Friday night’s episode.
After Stacey talked Max down from confronting Phil, she patched up his wounds and invited him to stay with her and husband Martin.
However, as they embraced in the last seconds of the episode, the pair came close to sharing a kiss before Stacey pulled herself away.
It comes a decade on from the soap’s smash-hit Christmas special when the pair’s affair was discovered in one of the most famous storylines to hit Albert Square.
Viewers on social media pleaded with Stacey not to make the same mistake again.
@LauraLoo169 tweeted: “Martin is lovely, gorgeous and a good dad. Why would Stacey rather have Max and mess it all up?! She’s nuts. I’ll have Martin.”
FatemaR@ wrote: “Please don’t tel me Max and Stacey is going to be happening all over again.”
@JC_Joel8 tweeted: “Why are #EastEnders doing this!! Stacey wouldn’t cheat on Martin, the Max affair was 10 years ago, she wouldn’t go there again.”
@IamBethrose posted: “Please don’t let there be another Stacey and Max affair… 🙄 I love Martin and Stacey!!”
