EastEnders' Linda Carter has been in turmoil over her pregnancy, ever since she found out fling Max Branning was the father.
Her husband Mick has struggled to process the news, despite suggesting he will be there for her.
There was a bombshell last week though that shocked her to her core, and left her fearing for the safety of her unborn child.
Max has run away with his granddaughter Abi, stealing her from Rainie and Stuart who have been raising her.
He's done a runner and his whereabouts remains unknown, with many shocked at how far he has gone.
Linda is no doubt worrying what might happen if he ever finds out he is the father of her baby, not Mick.

After Mick's no-show at the baby scan, Linda fears he can't give her the support she needs and decides she will place the baby up for adoption when they are born.
But Mick explains the situation with cabbie Jeanette who he raced to hospital after she went into labour, before staying with her as her partner was away.
With Max's actions playing heavily on her mind, she tells Mick she wants to lie that she's five months pregnant, and not six, and that he is the dad.
