Stacey Fowler is not prepared for what she finds whens he visits pal Ruby Allen in EastEnders.
Things had temporarily looked up for Ruby Allen after Matt and Ross were charged with her attack after the owner of the off-licence gave a statement, and with Stacey giving her somewhere to stay. But since then it seems everything has been on a downward spiral.
Shes had the shame of her case being splashed across the front page on the gazette, and the devastation of learning that Martin was the one who gave the photograph of her kissing Matt to the police.
But things have got even worse for her, which Stacey discovers when she heads to Rubys flat to drop off some presents, only to be left shocked by what she finds.
And as she hangs around she learns the truth about the horrific online abuse Ruby has been suffering at the hands of trolls. Shes left petrified that they might come after her given the nature of some of the nastier threats. What will Stacey do to defend her friend and help her get through this?
