EastEnders: Stacey and Jack affair looms as fans beg: ‘Please no!’

Viewers are praying this one doesn't come to pass

Fans of EastEnders have been left begging show bosses not to go ahead with an affair storyline for Jack Branning and Stacey Slater. Recent weeks have seen the pair grow closer as he supported Stacey in her fight against stalker Theo.

And in last night’s episode (Thursday, November 30), Jack was there for Stacey as she drowned her sorrows, drinking in the allotments. Bringing her home to recover, Jack then defended Stacey when Sam questioned her parenting skills.

The pair’s palpable chemistry has left some wondering whether an affair could be on the cards. Indeed, recent EastEnders spoilers have revealed that Jack and Stacey will continue to bond over the coming weeks, as his marriage grows more turmoiled.

If an affair is where the storyline is headed, then the idea isn’t an entirely popular one with fans.

EastEnders fans beg soap not to go ahead with Jack and Stacey affair

Fans on social media shared their thoughts on the potential match-up last night. And many seemed to agree that Jack and Stacey are better off left as they are.

Many have also picked up on the fact that Jack would be Stacey’s third Branning man – first Jack’s nephew Bradley, then his brother, Max. Is Stacey going to complete the set?

“NO Jack and Stacey please, EastEnders scriptwriters! She’s already had two Brannings (Max and Bradley) and doesn’t need a third. Plus Stacey is too busy looking after baby Charli to have a bit on the side with Jack,” one impassioned fan wrote on Twitter (now X).

“Oh god please don’t start a Jack and Stacey affair, has she not had enough Branning men for one lifetime,” said another.

“Jack and Stacey getting together makes no sense,” said a third.
