The sight of Peter Beale in (and out) of his running girl impresses Lauren Branning next week, so much so that she ends up proposing marriage.
The pair’s on-off-on-again relationship has kept viewers guessing this past year, but it looks like Walford’s half marathon will be the catalyst to the pair getting wed.
Scenes to be shown on Monday 2 February see Lauren throwing down the gauntlet to Peter by suggesting that Kush might be faster than him in the half-marathon. But she gets more than she bargained for when Peter decides to prove his fitness by taking his sporting prowess into the bedroom!
Later in the week, Lauren will make a life-changing decision when – in the wake of Peter’s success in the race – she asks Peter to marry her. But will he end up saying yes?
