EastEnders set for bizarre love story
Daily Star Sunday reports that Lauren will fall for her cousin Joey.
A source told the paper: "This is going to be a huge storyline across the autumn.
"Lauren hits the booze and shows her vulnerable side to Joey. He's there for her and feels very protective.
"The more time they spend together the more they start to realise their feelings for each other are not just that of cousins.
"It's a powerful force and the attraction is so strong between them that it's going to take something huge to stop them jumping into bed."
