The past is set to collide with the present in tonight’s episode of EastEnders when Stacey (Lacey Turner) comes face to face with Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa).
The pair will clap eyes on each other this evening after Stacey flees from a heated argument with Kat and takes shelter in the the Vic.
But little does she know that Lauren is on her way up the stairs at the pub in search of scissors for a project. And there’s shock all round when Lauren realises just who is sitting on the sofa in the boozer’s living area…
Lauren, of course, has not been a fan of Stacey’s ever since she learnt of the affair between Stacey and Max. Long-term viewers will remember that it was Lauren who placed DVD evidence of her dad’s adultery under the Christmas tree six years ago – a move that led to the Branning family being torn apart over the festive season.
Just to rub salt in the wound, Lauren later taped Stacey’s confessing to murdering Archie Mitchell and then handed the recording over to the manipulative Janine. With so much bad feeling between Lauren and Stacey, just how will this chance encounter pan out when the pair are reunited?
