In last night’s episode of EastEnders (Tuesday January 24, 2023), Jack found out that Ricky Jr is going to be a father to Lily’s baby.
He was furious and stormed round to the Slaters’ house to confront them.
But, now EastEnders fans have slammed Jack as being a ‘nasty piece of work’ for his treatment of Lily.
Jack wants Lily to have an abortion
Last night, after being informed about Lily’s pregnancy by Ricky Jr, Sam sat Denise and Jack down to tell them the news.
She then informed the shocked couple that Ricky Jr was going to be a dad.
Denise and Jack thought that Sam was joking at first, noting that Ricky Jr didn’t even have a girlfriend.
However, Sam then told them that Lily Slater was pregnant with Ricky Jr’s baby.
With this, the pair went round to the Slaters’ house to have it out with them.
Denise tried to act rationally but Jack’s temper got the better of him.
He was in denial that any of the situation was Ricky Jr’s fault and started accusing Lily.
He then made his feelings clear that Lily should have an abortion and tried to get Martin on side with the idea.
EastEnders fans slam Jack for his behaviour
After seeing Jack try to control Lily’s decision, fans have slammed Jack as a ‘nasty piece of work.’
They think that she should accept that Ricky Jr was also at fault and stop trying to control the decision of a child that’s not his.
One viewer tweeted: “No wonder Jack Branning’s kids are damaged, he’s a pathetic excuse of a parent. So controlling, never listens and has serious anger problems. He always blames everyone else but if he looked in a mirror, the problem is staring right back at him.”

Jack seems to forget his sister Carol wasn't that old when she had Bianca or when his niece Sonia had Rebecca #EastEnders
