EastEnders' Michelle Fowler is set to fall pregnant with her teenage boyfriend's baby.
The sacked teacher - portrayed by Jenna Russell - will find herself in hot water over the next few weeks after she starts to feel unwell following her steamy bunk up with 17-year-old Preston Cooper (Martin Anzor), sparking fears she may be carrying his child.
A source told Inside Soap magazine: "Michelle has been playing with fire for a long time but it's not just the stress of the situation that needs to be considered.
"The consequences of sleeping with the wrong person can be huge - Michelle just needs to ask her neighbour Denise about the ramifications of an ill-advised bunk up.
"Don't forget, Michelle's mum Pauline had her youngest son Martin at 40, so there is a family history of having babies later in life.
"But if Michelle is really carrying the child of a teenager - a boy who was once her student and whom she lost her job over - it would be a huge scandal."
Michelle returned to Walford from Florida earlier this year after her husband Tim found out about her affair with the schoolboy and she was subsequently fired from her job.
Despite trying to move on with her life in Albert Square, Michelle got the shock of her life last month when Preston rocked up on Valentine's Day to rekindle their romance.
The blonde beauty has attempted to cool off her relationship with Preston on numerous occasions and persuade him to return to the States so they can both get on with their lives, but he's not prepared to give up the love of his life without a fight and tried to make her jealous by hooking up with her niece Bex Fowler (Jasmine Armfield).
As well as the possibility of a baby in the mix, Michelle is set to receive a phone call from Preston's mother this week demanding she send her son back to America.
