Livid EastEnders fans blast BBC for 'dumbing down' Stacey Slater – raging 'what the hell has happened?!' | The Sun

EASTENDERS fans have accused the soap of 'dumbing down' character Stacey Slater as she fails to figure out Theo Hawthorne is her stalker.

BBC viewers are growing frustrated at "stupid" Stacey (Lacey Turner) as her stalker Theo (William Ellis) takes his obsession to the next level.

Stacey was left terrified after finding out her stalker had broken in to her home and ripped all her lingerie.

Consequently, she asked Theo to keep her company as she was afraid to be home alone.

Theo was thrilled his plan worked as he had to think of another way to be around Stacey after she stopped Lily's (Lilia Turner) tutoring sessions.

Theo played the concerned friend while he changed the locks and kept the spare key.

Meanwhile, fans are fuming that Stacey hasn't worked out that Theo is her stalker after all of the warning signs.

Taking to X, formally known as Twitter, one said: "I hate when characters who aren't stupid are written as stupid so the plot can work. Stacey would have realised it’s Theo by now."

Another wrote: "How is Stacey not finding it strange that Theo is literally EVERYWHERE where she is?
