Here’s further evidence that a forbidden romance will soon be developing between relatives Joey and Lauren.
EastEnders has released these stunning new pics of actors David Witts and Jacqueline Jossa looking more Hollywood Hills than East End. Their pairing in the images suggests that there will be a sizzle between the Branning cousins this autumn, a prospect backed up by our spoilers for next week’s episodes.
Witts, 21, recently commented to Inside Soap: "Joey’s very much under the impression that girls are lucky to be with him. He doesn’t really give them much respect. But with Lauren, there are real feelings.
“For the first time in his life, he falls in love with someone – but it’s a girl who’s forbidden. That’s karma for you!”
