EastEnders resident Ruby Allen (played by Louisa Lytton) returned to Walford back in 2018 after over a decade away and has since reconfirmed her status as a fan-favourite. She has embarked on a romance with Max Branning (Jake Wood) but it soon emerged she was less committed to the relationship than he was, sleeping with Martin Fowler (James Bye) over Christmas. Now, as their relationship continues to hit the rocks, could Ruby’s latest lies lead Max to depart?
Max proposed to Ruby late last year in a bid to prove his commitment to his lover – but she humiliated him by turning him down.
Ruby later revealed she wasn’t sure if she ever wanted to get married and suggested the idea of the pair seeing other people at the same time.
Her boyfriend was much less keen on the idea but reluctantly accepted as he didn’t want to lose Ruby.
However, Ruby was seen getting close to a familiar face after she became close with Martin last Christmas.

After the pair confided in each other about their respective dilemmas, the pair spent the night together and it’s clear their flirtation isn’t over yet.
Max was livid to discover Ruby’s fling with Martin but he will be gutted after he learns of her decision to employ him as a security guard at the club.
This week, Martin and Ruby’s romance came into question again after it was strongly hinted it could be on the cards.
With Martin currently a single man and Ruby seemingly becoming bored of Max, it’s likely they could develop their feelings.
In upcoming episodes, Max will become more sceptical over their future when he learns of her plans from his brother Jack Branning (Scott Maslen).
Max believes he and Ruby are set to spend a romantic night together but he is soon proved wrong when she goes off and leaves him in charge of the club.
His temper will get the better of him and he throws Vinny (Shiv Jalota) and Dotty (Milly Zero) out of the club for misbehaving.
However, things get worse when Jack lets slip Ruby is planning on buying number 43 – something which she hasn’t told Max – and he is forced to cover.

It’s not the only thing that will put their relationship into question as Ruby’s lies are set to continue.
As his frustrations grow, he will be angered to learn about Martin’s new role at the club – could his romance with Ruby be at an end?
Fans of the BBC soap are keen to see Martin and Ruby become an item, after his romance with her best friend Stacey Fowler (Lacey Turner) appeared to come to an end.
Martin pretended he had cheated on Stacey with his ex-wife, Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) to keep her out of trouble but this was just a lie to keep her away from the danger lying in Walford.

After Martin and Ruby’s connection became clear yet again this week, viewers took to social media to get behind the potential new romance.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Oooo!!! #Muby is back!!! Love seeing Martin and Ruby together. Now we just need to find #MaxBranning a good woman.”
Another commented: “Can they do Muby though seriously. Get Ruby away from Max, he’s completely and utterly boring #eastenders.”
A third said: “Damn the chemistry in this Martin and Ruby scene. Phew! One of my favourites from tonight’s episode #EastEnders.”
With Max struggling to stay afloat with his dwindling romance and impending divorce from Rainie Cross (Tanya Franks), could he end up saying goodbye to Albert Square as everything gets too much to cope with?
EastEnders airs Mondays at 8pm and Tuesdays at 7:30pm on BBC One.
