The latest episode showed Martin Fowler walking in on Max Branning and Stacey laughing as they caught up following his return to the Square.
Expressing his dislike for the former car salesman, Martin wasn’t as amused as his wife who told him that Michelle had been flirting with Max.
After sensing that Martin wasn’t happy with Max’s presence, viewers of the BBC soap called out the possibility of Max and Stacey reigniting their affair.
“I’m hoping it’s only a great friendship and nothing more. Not again! Like seriously,” warned one fan.

While another added: “@bbceastenders @BBCOne please don’t give us max and Stacey for the 10 thousandth time especially after forcing Becs and Shaq on us.”
Believing that it’s about time that Max changed his womanising ways, a third fan commented on the social networking site: “Please tell me Max isn’t going to do the same old, sleeping with everybody.
“He needs to go a different direction.”
However another fan disagreed, but did insist that Stacey has moved on from Max.
“Wouldn’t be Max if he didn’t sleep with anything with a pulse.
“Lay off Stacey though – she’s moved on.”

While fans are hoping that Stacey and Max won’t get together, their friendship looks set to get complicated when Stacey tells her former flame a secret that Martin told her.
After finding out that Phil Mitchell had bribed the foreman of the jury in his case to find him guilty, Stacey will be seen telling Max.
Having vowed to not take revenge on anyone, will Max be able to keep his cool?
