Stacey terrified as pregnant child Lily endures health scare in EastEnders

Lillia Turner) was pregnant, after she collapsed from carbon monoxide poisoning during the New Year’s Day edition of EastEnders. It took a while for Lily to get used to the idea that she was going to be a mum, with the possibility of having an abortion coming up several times. However, she eventually made the decision to keep the baby.

Now, Stacey is set to be frightened all over again as Lily suffers a health scare, leaving all of the Slaters, especially Stacey, concerned. Lily is out on the market when she draws the attention of Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty), who is still grieving for the loss of her own daughter, Peach. Whitney is terrified when she realises that Lily is having a health scare, and accompanies her back to the Slater house.

Given her recent tragic circumstances, Whitney is desperate to keep Lily’s baby safe, and goes over the top with trying to protect her. This causes a row with fraught Stacey, who already has an awful lot on her plate. The Slaters have been struggling with the cost of living crisis, and matriarch Stacey has been left to sort out all of the problems their money issues have caused.

Jagmeet Singh says grocery chains are ‘profiteering’ amid inflation. Is it true?
Jagmeet Singh is calling out Canada’s major grocery chains for making record profits amid soaring inflation, which he calls “profiteering.”Speaking to Global News Radio 640 host Greg Brady Tuesday, Singh accused corporate grocers of “gouging” Canadians with marked-up food prices while still reporting higher profits, which he says doesn’t add up.“If you’re increasing prices to offset increased costs, they would have the same level of profit,” he said. “But we’re seeing a significant increase in their profits.“It shows that they’re just gouging Canadians at this difficult time.” Global food, fuel prices won’t ease until 2024 due to Ukraine war: World Bank On Wednesday, Singh called for an “excess profits tax” on major grocery chains and oil and gas companies, expanding the Liberals’ plan to place a higher 18 per cent tax on bank profits exceeding $1 billion.The NDP say the revenue collected from their proposed tax would help raise the annual GST tax credit and Canada Child Benefit by $500 each per year.“Why is it that wealthy companies get to make more, and families have to suffer, and why do governments allow that to happen?” he asked.“The whole point of government is to level that, to ensure companies aren’t gouging or exploiting a difficult time.”A look at the latest earnings reports from the three major grocery chains — Loblaw, Empire Co.
