EastEnders spoilers: does Lauren’s laptop hold the key to Lucy’s murder?

Emma Summerhayes hands Lauren Branning's computer in during upcoming scenes

There will be fresh developments in the Lucy Beale murder case over the coming weeks as DI Keeble (Alison Newman) informs Emma Summerhayes (Anna Acton) that there was suspicious activity on Lucy’s social media accounts in the wake of her death and that the police needs to examine Lauren’s laptop as part of their enquiry.


Keeble tasks Emma with obtaining the laptop and after Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) makes a reference about Lucy’s death, Emma decides to hand the computer over. Lauren is horrified to discover that Emma has given her laptop to the police, but pretty soon the finger of suspicion is being pointed in Whitney’s direction after the contents of the computer are explored…

Speaking to Radio Times about where the case is headed over the Christmas period, executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins said: “Lucy Beale’s murder takes a very eerie twist before many potential suspects are ruled out.”
