THEO Hawthorne appeared in the Slaters' lives after giving Freddie closure over his past behaviour.
Charmed by the newcomer, despite his clearly creepy nature, Stacey Slater (played by Lacey Turner) makes a huge decision in EastEnders.
Freddie Slater's former teacher rocked up Walford earlier this year as part of the lad's ADHD diagnosis storyline.
Since then, the rest of the Slater family have taken a liking to him, particularly Lily Slater (Lillia Turner) to whom he gave brand new trainers.
BBC One viewers immediately deemed him inappropriate and were convinced he was too good to be true.
They were proven right when it was revealed that Theo (William Ellis) is Stacey's Secret Cam client.
