EastEnders' Lauren and Joey Branning face a huge dilemma when they are involved in a near-fatal car crash.
The cousins decide to flee Albert Square when Joey's dad Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman) discovers the cousins have embarked on a romance, but things quickly go wrong for the pair.
Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) loses control of the motor and it smashes through a shop window.
Police are called to the scene - but Joey could take the rap for the accident as Lauren has been drinking.
While it hasn't been revealed what they decide to do, David Witts, who plays Joey, admitted he really enjoyed filming as he and Jacqueline were allowed to be involved with some of the basic stunts.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "Stunt doubles did all the dangerous things, but Jacqueline and I were keen to do as much as possible, so we were allowed to do some jumping over things and that sort of stuff.
"It was really exciting - nice to be part of it and also to watch all the stunts happening."
'EastEnders' airs the accident scenes on BBC One this Friday (23.11.12).
