So, the truth about Jake Stone is out – he’s actually married to Beauty boss Sadie Young. And in tonight’s episode, a heartbroken Lauren will discover all about it for herself after Jake reveals that he and his missus are giving their marriage another go.
After breaking the news, a tardy Jake (Jamie Lomas) heads over to the salon, where Sadie (Kate Magowan) smells alcohol on her husband’s breath and – having had enough – delivers a shock bombshell: she and their daughter Bella will be moving into their new house on the Square alone.
Jake manages to use Bella to stick around, but tensions remain high between him and Sadie. Pretty soon, he’s bringing up a demon from their past, leaving the married couple struggling with their emotions. Find out what the secret actually is when EastEnders broadcasts these scenes tonight at 7.30pm on BBC1.
