Jossa: Joey is good for Lauren
Next week, teen tearaway Lauren is left heartbroken after Joey is forced by his dad Derek to call it quits on their budding romance.
Jacqueline hinted to All About Soap that Lauren may hit the bottle after the upset. She said: "She's never really stopped (drinking)! Booze is her comfort blanket. And if she doesn't have Joey, what else has she got?
"Her family are great, but the only person she wants to talk to is Joey."
The actress, who joined the BBC One soap two years ago, added: "Being with Joey is good for Lauren - she doesn't get as drunk when she's around him, and I really dread to think how she'll be without him now."
