Stacey Slater's freedom is on the line in Thursday's episode of EastEnders (7:35 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Stacey Slater is fuming when Kheerat Panesar confronts her and accuses her of stealing his dead brother Jags Panesar's watch from their house. 

The accusation could cause big trouble for Stacey as she's on probation, and she hides her concern when her probation officer turns up to check on her.

Things seem to be going well with the probation officer, even though Jean Slater is in a fluster. But all hell breaks loose when Suki Panesar storms in and accuses Stacey of stealing the watch. 

As if Stacey's day couldn't get any worse, Suki then gives the Slaters an eviction notice!

Could all the kerfuffle mean Stacey could end up back in prison?
