EastEnders' Lauren Branning to be arrested
EastEnders' Lauren Branning will be arrested in the Queen Vic for punching her former best friend Lucy Beale in the face
EastEnders' Lauren Branning will be arrested in the Queen Vic.
The troubled alcoholic - who is played by Jacqueline Jossa - will get into trouble for punching Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater) in the face after she makes several digs at her former best friend, who she fell out with after the brunette stole her boyfriend, Lauren's cousin Joey Branning (David Witts).
A show insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Lauren is in serious trouble this time. It's not just the booze that's a problem now, she could well end up with a criminal record."
After hitting Lucy, Lauren continues to take her frustrations out by throwing a jar of sugar through the window of the local café.
Despite her rage, Lauren thinks she has escaped any punishment but Lucy rings the police and gets her arrested for assault.
The drama comes after Lauren tried to get back with her cousin Joey by going in for a sneaky smooch when she is drunk. But he rejects her advances and she heads to the allotment to drown her sorrows.
