EastEnders: Lily’s blood pressure was high

Last night, Martin arranged for Sonia to come round and visit Lily as he was concerned about her.

Sonia checked her blood pressure and then asked when the last time Lily felt the baby kick was. Lily said that it was a couple of hours ago before Sonia revealed that her blood pressure was quite high.

Martin then told Sonia that Lily had been worrying about her upcoming meeting with social services.

With this, Sonia arranged for Lily’s midwife to check up on her as a precaution.
