Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa) is set to arrive home from her stint in rehab to find Max (Jake Wood) getting amorous with Kirsty (Kierston Wareing).
In scenes to be shown next week, Max will be seen arguing with Kirsty after he accuses her of sleeping with former boyfriend Carl (Daniel Coonan). But the tension between Max and Kirsty soon becomes electric and they quickly head back to the Brannings’ to take things further.
But just as they’re tearing each other’s clothes off, in walks Lauren, who’s determined to get her life back on track following her recent battles with alcohol.
But with Max shifting his focus onto his daughter, does this mean Kirsty will suddenly be less of a priority in his life just at the moment when passions with his missus have been rekindled?
