EastEnders star Melissa Suffield has revealed that she is thrilled over her character's new baby storyline.

The 17-year-old's alter ego Lucy Beale will discover that she is pregnant later this year following a number of encounters with Walford newcomer Leon Small (Sam Attwater).

Discussing the surprise twist, Suffield told New: "I'm excited about the storyline because it's something brilliant to get my teeth into. I love playing 'bitch Lucy', but you'll soon see a completely different side to her."

On how Lucy will react to the responsibility of motherhood, she admitted: "I don't know what she'll do. She's good at rising to a challenge. But then she's always out drinking with her mates, so in that respect I think she'll see it as a burden."

Lucy's new storyline is expected to send shockwaves through the Beale family as her stepmother Jane (Laurie Brett) has been desperate to adopt or foster a baby for months.

A source recently said: "Emotions are set to run high for all the Beale family over the next few months and there will be many twists and turns ahead." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
