EastEnders spoilers follow.
Ruby Allen is facing yet more complications following her nightmare fall in EastEnders.
Club owner Ruby (Louisa Lytton) sustained injuries last week when she tumbled down her stairwell during a heated argument with Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner).
Although Ruby knows she'd actually lost her and husband Martin Fowler's (James Bye) child before the stairwell incident, she has blamed Stacey for the loss of their baby while speaking to Martin.
In Monday's (March 1) episode, Martin was at a loss over how to support Ruby as she was determined to carry on her routine by going to work as normal.

Before the day could really get going, Ruby was doubled over in pain and had to be rushed to the hospital — where she was informed that an unforeseen complication had arisen.
"What you're experiencing is haemorrhaging from your miscarriage," the doctor explained.
The doctor explained that Ruby would need to have a procedure, but added that if it went well then she'd be released that evening.
"I thought this bit was over," Ruby confided in Martin. "This happens every day all over the world, so why do I feel like I'm the only one?"
When Martin left the hospital to get Ruby some clothes, Stacey approached to make it clear that she was deeply sorry for what had happened.
Martin shared that Ruby was feeling deeply alone, but Stacey explained that "all she needs" is his support during this period of grieving.
"She needs you to talk to her, tell her how you feel," Stacey explained. "She's not on her own, Martin. She's got you."
Martin then returned to the hospital and followed Stacey's advice by finally opening his heart to Ruby over their shared loss.
"You're not on your own. I'm here, and I love you," Martin assured his wife.
Ruby replied that she loved Martin too, and they sat together, seemingly now ready to process their shared grieving.
EastEnders continues on Tuesday on BBC One.
