Lily Slater (Lillia Turner) has been struggling with motherhood ever since giving birth to daughter Charli at just 13-years-old in EastEnders.

The teen mum is desperate to prove that she can be a good parent, however, one mistake has left mum Stacey (Lacey Turner) taking more control than ever.

In recent scenes, Lily grew increasingly frustrated over her mother’s interference as they prepared for a visit from social worker Naz.

During the visit, Stacey continually answered for Lily whenever she was asked a question, leaving the new mum frustrated.

Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) had clearly picked up on the tension, as she soon laid into Stacey after Naz had left.

Jean pointed out that Lily needed to be able to ‘find her feet and speak for herself’, to which Stacey asked if she wanted Naz to find out about the incident the previous day.

Lily and Ricky (Frankie Day) had taken Charli out for the afternoon, but were caught trying to feed her crisps by Jack Branning (Scott Maslen).

Jean explained that it had been a mistake, and that everyone was allowed to make them, as Naz had said herself.

However, Stacey was quick to point out that they weren’t like normal families and they had no room to make mistakes, seeing as Lily was a 13-year-old mum and Stacey was an ex-criminal with a stalker.

Stacey was quick to point out that they didn’t have the luxury of making mistakes, much to Lily’s upset.

Lily soon pointed out that she wouldn’t have said anything to Naz about the previous day, and insisted that she had learnt her lesson.

She revealed that she just wanted Stacey to help her feel like she could do things instead of doing them for her, and was trying her best to learn how to be a good mum.

Will Stacey take Lily’s words on bored and back off a bit?
