EastEnders fans call out continuity blunder with teen mum Lily Slater | The Sun

SCHOOLGIRL Lily Slater was revealed to be pregnant after her family welcomed in the new year.

Although months have passed since then, EastEnders viewers were still gobsmacked to see her with a bigger bump than expected.

BBC One viewers and Lily's mother Stacey Slater (portrayed by Lacey Turner) were left reeling when the twelve-year-old learned she was pregnant.

After weeks of mystery, the father was then revealed to be Ricky Mitchell and the pair of kids decided to go through with the pregnancy.

Since then, Lily (Lillia Turner) has been adapting to her upcoming motherhood and facing bullies in school.

But as a result of her pregnancy, both her and Ricky's families have to take part in conferences – which was the case during last night's trip to Albert Square.

However, one major detail left viewers of the London-based program scratching their heads.

Many noticed that, although she is several months pregnant, Lily's baby bump seemed to have grown overnight.

Soap viewers took to Twitter to comment on what appeared to be a glaring blunder, putting the show on blast.

"Lily’s bump has tripled in size since she was last on screen LOL", one fan quipped.

"Wow!!! Lily's bump has grown massive in the space of one week", a third social media user penned.

A fourth commented: "Just to say that Lily's bump seems to have really grown within the space of about 2 weeks."

"I reckon her waters could break Mid to Late August – how far gone is she meant to be?"

Lily's pregnancy was exposed to Stacey in January, 2023, making her around six months pregnant.

Despite Martin Fowler's (James Bye) protests and her finances running low, Stacey agreed to support Lily through the pregnancy.

Stacey turned to secret sex work online in a bid to make ends meet, unaware one of her clients managed to track her down.

In recent scenes of the long-running show, Theo Hawthorne (William Ellis) was revealed to be one of Stacey's Secret Cam clients – but she remains completely unaware.

Although she and her daughter Lily are trusting Theo, Martin is more sceptical and showed he doubted the teacher's good intentions.
