EASTENDERS fans were shocked when they tuned into the BBC One soap this evening only to hear Martin Fowler proclaim: “Ruby, you can’t cut his bits off.”
Martin and his wife Stacey burst into Ruby’s flat seconds before she was about to take a knife to her rapist Ross’ privates after she was seen drugging him during last night’s episode.
Martin warned Ruby not to cut Ross’ bits off
Scared that Ross and his friend Matt won’t be found guilty when they appear in court for raping her while she was drunk and barely conscious, Ruby decided to exact revenge on the criminal herself.
With Ross unconscious after being drugged, Ruby compared his inability to say “no” to her revenge to her being unable to say “no” to having sex with him and Matt, picking up a knife as she warned that she was going to make sure that he couldn’t hurt another woman in the way that he had hurt her.
However, having seen incriminating texts on Matt’s phone at the Queen Vic, Martin was worried that it was actually Ruby who was in danger and he and Stacey raced round to her flat – shocked when they found Johnny Allen’s daughter pulling at the unconscious man’s trousers on the floor.
The powerful scenes saw Stacey tell her best friend that she would support her “no matter what” she decided to do with Ross – with Martin perplexed that the idea was even being entertained.

In a moment of accidental comic relief among the distressing episode, Martin remarked: “Ruby, you can’t cut his bits off” – leaving viewers tickled.
Taking to social media, one fan wrote: “On tonight’s episode of things I never expected anyone to say on #EastEnders: ‘Ruby you can’t cut his bits off'”.
Another added: “‘Ruby you can’t cut his bits off!’ OK not a phrase I was ever expecting to hear on this show”.
A third said: “‘Ruby you can’t cut his bits off’ is pure poetry written by Shakespeare himself”.

Later in the episode, Stacey had talked Ruby round and the trio instead dragged Ross’ body outside to wake up in the street – with all body parts still attached.
Stacey punched the rapist in the face for what he had done to her friend, before asking Ruby if she had planned to “put the little thing in a jar”.
Martin went on to show the two women the texts that he had seen on Matt’s phone – hoping that this will give Ruby the evidence that she needs to send her rapists to jail.
