Sam Mitchell has made the huge decision to move to Germany with Ricky Butcher and his niece Scarlett Butcher. 

BIG problem... She hasn't told her son Ricky Mitchell yet!

The poor boy already feels pretty much abandoned by his mum, as she dumped him with dad Jack Branning when he was six-years-old to resume her life in Portugal.

Little does Sam know but there's a huge storm brewing. Martin Fowler is threatening to tell the police that Ricky Jnr is the father of his 12-year-old daughter Lily Slater's baby after only just discovering the news.

Lily is worried that Ricky Jnr will get in trouble and she heads out to warn him. Terrified, Ricky Jnr rushes off and runs straight into his mum, blurting out that he's going to be a dad!

Instead of consoling her son, a stunned Sam tells him her own news, revealing she's moving to Germany!

Meanwhile, Ricky is feeling chipper about his future with Sam and he heads out to buy an engagement ring.

Sam, however, is trying to make things right with her under pressure son, after upsetting him about her news.

Will Sam have a wobble about leaving the Square?
