A few months ago, Ruby told Martin she wanted a baby but he was against the idea, as he is already a father to four.

Ruby ended up telling Martin she was pregnant, when she wasn’t.

Stacey recently started to suspect Ruby was lying about the baby and forced her to take a pregnancy test in front of her.

Both Ruby and Stacey were shocked when it came out positive.

This week, she went for a scan and learnt she was seven weeks pregnant. But as she has already let Martin believe she was pregnant for longer than she was, she stole another woman’s scan.

She later told Martin she was 10 weeks along. However in last night’s episode (Thursday, February 25) Ruby called the hospital as she discovered she was bleeding.

At the hospital she had a scan and the sonographer couldn’t find a heartbeat. When she returned home, she didn’t tell Martin about the baby.

What’s next for Ruby?

In tonight’s episode (Friday, February 26) Stacey is fuming to see that Lily has ordered glam holiday stuff on her credit card.

Dotty pitches her idea to a distracted Ruby who agrees to let her and Tiffany host tables at the club.

Stacey stops by, ready to demand the money for Lily’s purchases. But they soon end up talking through their feelings.
