Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa) is to scupper her date with Walford returnee Peter Beale (Ben Hardy) when she turns once again to alcohol.
In scenes to be shown on Friday 21 June, viewers will see the pair enjoying each other’s company on a night out at Scarlett’s, although Lauren is trying desperately hard to ignore the rows of wine bottles that surround her. But when she spies Lucy (Hetti Bywater) with Joey (David Witts), it isn’t long before Lauren is instinctively ordering vodka.
Peter soon realises that their evening has taken a turn for the worse. But this is nothing compared to the argument that ensues when Lauren discovers that Peter was asked by Tanya (Jo Joyner) to take Lauren out in the first place. So can he stop her from knocking back drink after drink?
