Fu­neral shocks!

As Steven is laid to rest, Lau­ren learns his brain tu­mour was a lieÉ

What's on TV - - Soapweek -

The Beales and Bran­nings are still reel­ing from Steven’s death fol­low­ing the fire. Ian can barely func­tion and when he learns his step­son’s body has been re­leased, he al­most col­lapses.

Lau­ren, Steven’s fi­ancée, is strug­gling in other ways. Hav­ing wanted out of the re­la­tion­ship prior to Steven trap­ping her with his tale of a ‘fa­tal brain tu­mour’, Lau­ren had fallen out of love with him, but had stayed out of sym­pa­thy.

But with Steven now dead there’s no need for a quickie wed­ding or to have a baby with him, and Lau­ren has re­alised there is no love lost on her side. Racked with guilt about this, the mum hits the bot­tle, much to Whit­ney’s con­cern.

Dark day

In the morn­ing, Lau­ren has a hang­over – and the fu­neral ar­range­ments to sort. Her sis­ter Abi offers to help, but a row soon starts and see’s Abi dish out a vi­cious jibe.

Lau­ren reaches out to Max and, when her dad blanks her texts, she turns to Josh. Will her ex go to the fu­neral with her?

It’s a dark day as the mourn­ing fam­i­lies gather to see Steven laid to rest, but with so much bad blood, will everyone at­tend? Ten­sions are run­ning high, so when a fam­ily li­ai­son of­fi­cer shows up just as they’re set­ting off, Lau­ren knows there’s some­thing odd about the visit. She presses and presses and is ut­terly gob­s­macked to be in­formed Steven fal­si­fied his tu­mour! With the ter­ri­ble truth out in the open, the shock­waves keep com­ing, leav­ing pan­icked Abi hop­ing her in­volve­ment in Steven’s scam won’t be re­vealed…

Reel­ing... Lau­ren seeks com­fort from her ex, Josh

Wor­ried... Will Abi be found out?
