What's going on in the mind of Lauren Branning?
Have you been watching Lauren this week? It's sort of broken our hearts a little.
She's been supporting her mum through radiotherapy and chemotherapy, making her a mix CD (defining tune, Barbie Girl by Aqua) and cooking her up rice pudding and toast, just like Tanya used to when Lauren was small. Sob.
Next week we'll have the first of three new Lauren diaries
But before you get access to more of her video secrets, we thought we would break down the workings of her mind into a PIE CHART. It's proper scientific... Plus after that, we take a look at her style...
She's had her heart broken by Ryan, broke up Jodie and Darren's relationship (oops), sent her dad packing, watched as Jack and Ronnie fell apart, hung out with her mates, navigated Tanya, Rainie and Cora's many fall-outs, and this week marks the anniversary of her cousin and friend Billie's death. But by far the thing that's dominated her thoughts is her mum's cancer treatment and the pressure of keeping it a secret from the rest of her family. Could you cope with the year she's had?
Meanwhile, we can't leave without a mention of Lauren's style. I want that leather jacket. That is all.
