EastEnders fans were screaming at their TV’s last night as Hayley looked like she was experiencing a devastating miscarriage.
In disturbing scenes aired on Thursday (20 September), the pregnant Slater was seen clutching her belly in agony after realising she was bleeding.
The upsetting scare followed an explosive showdown with Hayley’s mum – and one fan even described newcomer Bev as “a bigger [bleep] than Stuart Highway”.

Hayley’s estranged mum arrived in Albert Square bearing flowers and promises that she’d become a better person…
But her daughter’s suspicions were bang on – Bev just wanted to use her for a scam and was eyeing up her baby for financial uses, even calling the unborn baby girl a “cash machine”.
In fact, Bev cons married men into giving her money and even suggested she trick Hayley’s baby daddy, too!
During a furious row, Bev said some horribly cruel things to her daughter, telling her that her baby didn’t stand a chance.
“That’s a walking cash machine you stupid cow, why can’t you see that,” she seethed. “God help her. You should’ve got it sucked out when you had the chance like I should’ve.”
Heartless Bev even told her daughter that she “used to pray she’d be born dead”. How evil!
Viewers then saw callous Bev get into a waiting taxi, and ordering the driver to take her as far away from Hayley as possible.
Clearly in distress, Hayley was seen crying out in pain and begging her mum to help her – but her mum just sped away, despite evidence that Hayley was bleeding.
Is Hayley losing the baby?
Fans were devastated on her behalf, with many worried she was suffering a miscarriage.
One simply wrote: “Please don’t let Hayley lose her baby!”
Another cried: “Omg poor Hayley I hope she doesn’t lose the baby.”
Omg poor Hayley I hope she doesn’t lose the baby. #Eastenders

Others were furious at Bev for being so cruel and leaving her own flesh and blood in such a state…
Fans called her a “disgrace”, “malicious”. “disgusting” and “a piece of work”.
One blasted: “What kind of mother leaves a pregnant daughter who’s bleeding and could lose her baby alone?”
Another tweeted: “Hayley’s mum is brutal.”
#EastEnders I don’t care how estranged Hayley and her mum were.
What kind of mother leaves a pregnant daughter who’s bleeding and could lose her baby alone?

Hayley hasn’t had the easiest of pregnancies…
Not only does she face raising the baby alone, she is keeping the identity of the dad a secret from her family.
With good reason – it’s Alfie Moon!
Hayley’s also been homeless and already had a scare after falling off a moped.
