EastEnders viewers predict Lauren return as Peter turns up heat with Ash

EastEnders fans are convinced that Lauren Branning could be set for an epic return to Albert Square.

Max Branning's eldest daughter has been away from Walford since 2018.

After her sister Abi's funeral, Lauren made the choice to start a new life on her own with her and Peter Beale's son Louie.

Since her exit, Lauren has been mentioned a number of times in the show, but could she be about to return to split Peter (Dayle Hudson) and Ash Panesar (Gurlaine Kaur Garcha) up?

Kathy interrupted Peter and Ash sharing a moment during Monday's edition of the BBC One soap.

Ash dashed out of the room and Kathy hit out at her grandson for not giving Lauren and Louie much of his time now he's spending time with Ash.

Viewers at home rushed to the keyboards as Lauren was mentioned several times during the episode.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Loads of Lauren mentions lately… a return please?"

A second person posted: "Randomly mentioning Louie and Lauren strange."

Another added: "Ooo Lauren mention."

While a fourth person predicted: "Suppose Lauren has found Ian Beale and he is staying with her and Louis in the UK?"

"Just want Lauren back already," said fifth social media user.

Lauren and Peter met shortly after she moved to Walford in 2006. They became romantically involved but Max didn’t approve of their relationship.

They were on and off throughout their teenage years but in 2010 Peter moved to Devon to live with his twin Lucy Beale.

Peter returned three years later and he and Lauren reunited. Their relationship continued to be on and off over the years.

In 2015, Lauren discovered she was pregnant with Peter’s baby and the pair of them moved to New Zealand together.

Lauren left Walford and eventually went back to New Zealand where she reconciled with Peter.
