Eastenders spoilers Monday 29 October - Friday 2 November 2018: It's Halloween in Walford, and things are about to get more than a bit spooky for the residents...

This week in Eastenders will see Hayley give birth alone after breaking down in a taxi - will she be found before it's too late?

But before we get into the nitty gritty of next week, let's recap what's happening this week on Albert Square.

After Hayley hit rock bottom last week, Jean puts in her best effort to support the mum-to-be. She starts by asking all the other Slater family members to contribute some money for baby presents.

Elsewhere Hayley is left startled when a social worker randomly turns up to discuss the events that took place last week. Hayley is furious and demands to know who called them before refusing to accept any of their help. Luckily, the social worker is able to win her around when she assures her she only wants to help.

Despite opening up to the social worker, Hayley snaps at Jean (who she assumes contacted the social worker) but when she goes to attack her, Kat and Stacey have to step in and break up the commotion.

When everyone manages to calm down it soon dawns on Hayley that it was Kat who made the call and when the Slaters confront her, she doesn't back down and stands by her decision. Later on, she attempts to make things right with Hayley but her plan fails and it's not long before the pair share harsh home truths and end up having a full blown row.

Further on in the week, when Hayley decides to stay at the Ahmed family home, Jean points out that Hayley should be living at home with them and insists Kat apologise to her.

However Kat is left shocked when she goes to see Hayley and sees her playing happy families with Harley.
