Tanya bans des­per­ate Max from Abi’s fu­neral...

Max is keen to lay Abi to rest but he’s hor­ri­fied when Lau­ren tells him his youngest daugh­ter’s fu­neral has al­ready hap­pened.

It hasn’t, of course. Lau­ren is ly­ing for her mum, Tanya, who doesn’t want the man she blames for Abi’s death to at­tend her daugh­ter’s fu­neral even if he is her dad. She may have al­lowed him to be at Abi’s bed­side when her life-sup­port was turned off, but now the venge­ful, griev­ing mum wants Max to feel noth­ing but pain and loss.

Shock re­veal

Ab­so­lutely floored, dev­as­tated Max turns to booze be­fore hound­ing Lau­ren and Jay for in­for­ma­tion about Abi’s grave. Their re­fusal to give him any­thing to go on drives Max so wild that Mick is forced to step in…

Later, a calmer Max vis­its Lau­ren to tell her he un­der­stands why he was ban­ished. Lau­ren’s re­lieved when he goes on to say he’ll be leav­ing Al­bert Square for a lit­tle while. It’s per­fect tim­ing as Abi’s fu­neral is days away.

But Lau­ren ends up stuff­ing up big time, caus­ing Max to re­alise he’s been duped.

Max then be­comes de­ter­mined to find out more, but Lau­ren stands firm. Af­ter point­ing out

Tanya won’t at­tend the fu­neral if he does, Lau­ren threat­ens to cut Max out of her life, too, if he per­sists. As the mourn­ers gather, will Max do the right thing and stay away?­ders
