Photo spoilers: Barred for boozing

EastEnders Blog Team

When Abi and Lauren find themselves spending the day together, Lauren is increasingly distracted by the need for more alcohol. Desperate, she sneaks out the back door and buys a bottle of vodka, disappears down an alleyway - and knocks it back.

When Lauren returns to the house, an angry Abi angrily snatches the vodka and tips it straight down the sink! Livid with her sister, Lauren flies into a rage of revenge and destroys Abi's revision notes. Ouch!

Tanya is furious with Lauren, and, fed up with her wayward daughter's destructive behaviour, tells her that Max and his" bit on the side" Kirsty are welcome to her.

She then throws Lauren out the house, slamming the front door closed! It's definitely tough love at the Brannings' right now.

Follow Lauren's growing drink problems tonight (Friday) from 8pm on BBC One.

If you have been affected by an alcohol-related problem, you can find many organisations that can help in our Help and Information database.

    I really do think that Lauren and Joey need some time apart, because lets face it, nobody wants to see lauren always messing up in front of him because of the drink. It is better to see her sober. Tbh the drink storyline has in some way dried up Lauren and Joeys storyline and relationship, and because Joey has not stuck by her and been with her at her worst, especially after they have been through a lot worser, them two just getting back together would seem odd and pointless. The only way eastenders could get them back on the platform they were before, is to make them spend a few more months apart just until she is completly straight, and not get back together as quick. Personally I think that eastenders should make Lauren get a lot more closer and intimate with peter, and if they would like to add more drama they should make lauren slowley cheat on joey behind peters back, just to give her a new storyline to focus on. This would rekindle and respark joey and laurens relationship to what it was before with a fresh start. Either way dont mind if Lauren is with peter, however I think Joey and Lauren have been thru a lot is well, and Lauren should get back together with Joey in the end, however they should get back together in an exciting way not just in a casual way.

    I think this plot has been amazing its no wonder Lauren has been drinking with having keep Tanya's cancer a secret then her and Joey breaking up no wonder why. I don't understand why Tanya and Max have taken so long to see she has a problem even before this storyline lauren was always drinking. I think Tanya kicking Lauren out was too far because she needs help not for someone to shut the door in your face

    The only scene I would like to see his Lauren being removed to a drink rehabilitation unit for serious treatment. Getting Joey to talk to her is a waste of time as he has tried and failed. An alcoholic never listens to those that they love and care for. Anyway Joey does not want an alcoholic girlfriend as he dumped her for her drunken behaviour. Its her problem not his. She does not want to listen to anyone as she has not accepted she is at rock bottom.

    To be an extra you need to sign up to artiste talent agencies,
    Do extra/ background jobs, genuine ones will take
    There fee out of the first job you do for them!
    Also, I feel that Peter will work out that Lucy spiked
    Lauren's drink! He bring her down!

    Totally agree - she should have more scenes with Joe, especially as it is obvious he still cares - I loved the scene where he hugs her and tells her its okay before she snaps at Lucy. There should be more of this!. I do think Peter could also be the answer though too, since he obviously still cares about Lauren (and maybe even still loves her). Agree with what you said about her friends as well, they seem to be acting like it isn't a problem, even though Lauren has had a problem with drink for the past two years, and it has just got worse since her breakup with Joey. Also hate Lucy - I don't see why she is so content on ruining Lauren's life, especially as she got what she wanted - she broke her and Joey up. Lauren was trying to get away from drink, and Lucy just made it worse for her when she was supposed to be friends with her and has known her since she was about 12! Don't understand why she would do this just for a guy!

    Agree with you blog123, she should have more scenes with Joey, he should definitely be more involved in this SL, even though they're not together anymore. Tanya and Max probably think he's not a good influence on her now they broke up!! Joey could help her up to a certain point though, she's reached a stage where she needs professional help! You're right for her friends as well!!
