The series follows Jane Cavendish (played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw) who falls in love with a unique minimalist house with really cheap rent.

However, while this sounds like the ultimate dream, living in the house means she is forced to abide by the strict rules of enigmatic architect Edward (David Oyelowo).

The situation becomes even stranger for Jane, after she discovers Emma Matthews (Jessica Plummer), someone who had previously lived in the property, had been found dead there.

In one scene from Tuesday's episode, Jane is informed she's pregnant but in a heartbreaking turn of events, it's revealed she lost the baby.

After getting in touch with a charity about her loss, Jane meets a support worker named Tessa who explains that Isobel, her unborn baby, had a very low heart rate as seen in the cardiotocography (CTG) trace.

EastEnders fans soon realised the support worker was portrayed by Lisa Faulkner, who starred in the long running BBC soap in 2017 as Fi Browning.
