Denise Johnson sees evil Lucas get life sentence
EastEnders' Denise Johnson will face her fears and see her evil husband Lucas handed a life sentence for murder
EastEnders' Denise Johnson will see her evil husband handed a life sentence for murder.
With the shaken singleton terrified about seeing the conniving killer - who brutally murdered his ex-wife Trina (Sharon Duncan Brewster), Denise's ex-husband Owen Turner (Lee Ross) and prostitute Gemma (Rita Balogun) - she is even more concerned when she discovers a pack of reporters have descended on her doorstep on the morning of the trial.
However, handsome new doctor Yusef Khan (Ace Bhatti) will quickly come to the rescue of Denise (Diane Parish) and act as her knight in shining armour by dispersing the rabble of news hounds with the assistance of a fire extinguisher.
Despite her worries, the shop assistant will face her fears and see preacher Lucas (Don Gilet) - who held her hostage for weeks on end when she discovered his killer secret - sent down for life in prison.
Denise will then return to her home at the bed and breakfast and is welcomed into the arms of handsome medic Yusef.
An 'EastEnders' insider explained: "With Lucas safely banged up in prison for the foreseeable future, Denise can finally get on with her life and think about moving on to a new romance.
"Although Yusef is still a relative stranger, there's no doubt she's attracted to his thoughtful nature. But it's only Denise who can decide whether she's ready to take their friendship to the next level."
