EastEnders viewers were recently left shocked after Max Branning and Stacey Fowler slept together on Christmas Eve.
The pair reignited their affair ten years after their initial fling ended both their marriages to Bradley and Tanya.
However, after Stacey considered leaving her husband Martin Fowler for Max, especially after he declared his love, soap boss John Yorke has teased what’s next for the lovers.
Talking to OK! Online at a recent press day, he said: “There will always be a connection between them, so again, we’ll just wait and see if that plays out at all.

“She was there with all the revenge stuff, she was showing concern to Max. I think there’s still a connection – she’s there for him if she needs to be.
“I think she’s the only person who would give him the time of day or will be there for him when everyone else has cut him out – his family, his community.
“So whether that is something that Max will rely on, we’ll have to wait and see.”
On Boxing Day, the hit BBC One soap ended with Stacey telling husband Martin that she had slept with Max.
