Ruby (played by Louisa Lytton) has been targeted by an unknown enemy since EastEnders returned to screens earlier this week, with huge amounts of money being taken from her bank account. As her money issues continued to mount by Tuesday, the club owner found herself contemplating about an offer made by Vinny Panesar (Shiv Jalota) to stage a robbery in order for her to claim insurance money. With tensions fraught with the bank over someone stealing her identity by Thursday’s edition of the BBC soap, the businesswoman did a U-turn but inadvertently put her boyfriend Martin (James Bye) in deadly danger. As the situation escalates, will she be put in the frame for coercing the scam and for planning a murderous plot?

The drama kicked off in the latest instalment of the weeknight serial drama when Ruby met with Vinny to go through the plan.
“What we spoke about, I’m in,” the businesswoman said, referring to a conversation the pair had earlier in the week.
With the Panesar boy asking her if she was sure, the Walford resident replied: “Well, yeah. I’ve got to do something.
“Someone’s trying to drain my bank accounts dry and the banks don’t believe it’s not me so I’ve got cash flow issues. I need that insurance money.”
“And Martin, is he in on this?” the robber enquired, to which the club security guard’s girlfriend told him her partner was not to know a thing.

“Just you and me. We’ll be out from lunchtime. The safe is full and I’ve made sure the club is empty,” Ruby told Vinny before the pair went their separate ways.
