Ruby finds comfort in Jean's kindness in EastEnders as she forgets Martin's birthday

Will she manage to make things up to him?


As Ruby packs for her operation, Lily reminds Martin she has the dentist and Ruby insists he prioritises his daughter.



Later, Jean sees Ruby and insists they go to the hospital together and once the procedure is done Martin is surprised and thankful to Jean for being there.



Returning home from the hospital, Ruby offers Jean money to help out, but she swiftly declines and takes Ruby to hers, suggesting they do face masks together. But Kat isn't too keen.


As they enjoy some much-needed relaxation, Ruby admits she never had fun like this with her own mum, but things take a turn when Jean gets a call.


On his birthday, which Ruby has clearly forgotten, Martin takes the kids to summer school. Shaken by a comment Jay makes about her, Ruby's paranoia grows when she overhears Kat talking about her at the laundrette.



When Jean mentions that she should be planning a dinner for Martin, Ruby realises her error.
