    Well if they try and make out it's Deans that would make her around 5mnths pregnant as they split in September. I don't believe that Laurens character is naive enough to be that far gone and only just doing a test and even now it's only because Stacy bought it.

    Anything is possible. Look at Orla in Fair City only discovering she was pregnant at 6 months........!!

    you are missing the point. its a soap and young characters around laurens age when they are initially brought in tend to err on the side of good looking that will appeal to viewers. you would be naive to ignore the advantage that an actress/actor in the late teens/early 20s age gap being attractive has for publicity for soap, hence actresses like michelle keegan, hetti bywater, the girl that plays katy in corrie, jacqueline jossa and te whole cast of home and away and hollyoaks generally. its just the way of the market. it may be rare a real talented actress spins from these but JJ is definitely not a bad actress and she certainly has a massive fan base due to her looks, moreso than her acting, so why would EE not want her there? she was also hired at 16/17 so hardly likely they could really establish her acting credentials then!

    theatre is a different thing. looks are definitely only a small factor but on soaps in that age gap looks are a huge factor, so no i wasnt judging her acting credentials by her looks, i was merely saying for a young good looking soap actress in such a young good looking soap actor market, she is by far not the worst actress.



    ive never seen anyone insulting lacey by comparing her to JJ so i can not comment on that but if i do, trust me ill make it known to them!!!!!


    just kidding!

    Everyone seemed to turn on Michelle Keegan when she took up with the reality tv muppet Mark Wright and now Jossa is doing the same.

    Her career could be over before it gets going.

    Shock late entry to Lucy suspects :eek:

    yeah, she is becoming a bit of an agony aunt. I thought it was nice with Shabnam but was there any need for her to be Laurens confidant also. Not unrealistic considering their history but i hope she doesnt become one of these go to characters, like a Susan in Neighbours type

    I think it is unrealistic, she was having it off with Laurens oul lad when he was married and now Lauren goes to her for advice, yeah like that would happen in real life.

    Yeah but she was also married to Lauren's brother for a while and they have known each other a long time. It's as realistic as her going to anyone else on the square given the circumstances.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like Stacey?

    Her scowl is so depressing these days.

    You're right she was, and was with Max at the same time.

    I guess it's forgive and forget in Walford!

    Living with Kat would depress anyone, Alfie should be running the other way instead of trying to get back with her.

    As an aside those hooker boots she wears are ridiculous.

    They talked it all out when Stacey first came back earlier this year. Lauren apologised for how she handled Max and Stacey's affair and Stacey apologised for it too. They have moved past it.

    ah, Alfie, the innocent cheekie chappy good guy.


    The same man who has caused his wife incredible physical pain and permanent disfigurement yet appears to feel no shame, guilt or remorse.

    Whilst she scrapes together a meagre living on the market struggling to find rent money and struggling to raise their kids he is living it up in nicely furnished, rent free accommodations having fun, up to his cheekie chappy tricks and out boozing and showing no signs of looking for work or trying to support or provide for his family.

    He is being written as completely shameless - living the life of riley whilst the mother of his children is struggling and suffering - and showing no interest in finding work to help support them

    Yeah, he should run................... the poor guy....!!

    He should have ran when she had the affair with greasy Derek Branning.

    Alfie is a fool but there's no malice in him.

    malice or not, the man is becoming very unlikeable and has responsibilities . They are both as bad as eachother really but at the moment its Kat who should be running, not him.

    The derek branning story was one of the worst EE stories in years. The imagery of Kat and the Rottweiler in bed makes me sick!

    Didn't Stacey give Lauren a key, was that ever addressed again?

    Stacey asked for it back but I don't remember if she ever did anything with it.

    I'm watching Eastenders 30th on the red button. It's Jane and Ian reminiscing and it's hilarious.

    OK, i have driven myself mad thinking of theories behind Lucy so I have decided to pick someone and stick by it now.

    If I had 4 suspects they would be Denise, Jane, Bobby and Cindy but I am going to choose the latter two as my choices. Both are strong odds so worth a fiver each.

    So my theory is Jane helped cover up a row between Cindy (probably) but maybe Bobby which led to Lucy's eventual death.

    I think the row centred around the cocaine, perhaps hidden in the jewelry box with Cindy threathening to expose Lucy. I think there was a row and a catfight and Lucy was hit by the jewelry box knocking her out, or at least dazing her. Perhaps this led to an aneurysm and her dazily leaving the house and finding herself on the common? It would be ironic if Emma suffered an aneurysm trying to solve the murder also.

    Masood and/or Denise may also have been involved in clearing the body from the scene. If she did die at Beales.

    I think the key is Jane covering up for Lauren by stating she saw her out the window at a certain time to Emma. I think it clicked with Emma that Jane could not have been there as on the CCTV her car was missing at the time she claimed. "Hence...............it doesn't add up" SOC (scene of crime....

    i have more on this and i'll edit it accordingly but i am convincing myself by the minute.

    the music box under the tree was a plant by Emma to test reactions by the suspects she had narrowed it down to.

    i think she called jane that night with the "i know you killed lucy" line believing it to be her but jane brought cindy along to explain the story. "its still murder" perhaps testifying to the fact that Cindy is so young and/or it was not intended. (although then you are getting into premeditated zone) Note that Emma had no problem meeting the killer and seemed to empathise with them giving them a chance to explain and battling with her conscience whether to ship them in to the police. "i cannot keep THE secret"............ ie the cover up by Jane / Cindy (bobby). if it was someone like Jay, Ben, Billy, Lee, the Crokers, Denise, Whitney, even Max or any other suspect outside the Beale family, i think she would struggle to meet them and give them an opportunity to explain themselves.

    jane hid items in the floorboards and has spent a lot of time with cindy, most notably convincing Alfie to get ian out of the house as "he would be doing her and Cindy a favour" the night if the stag.

    Cindy has kept a very low profile since the night compared to others and has never shown any strong indications you can say she is definitely innocent, ie no finger pointing miss marple stuff. yet she is always lurking about.

    Also, if it is Cindy, Ian won't shop her into the police. She is a kid and there is a baby involved. if it was jane, i couldnt see him forgiving her. if it was any of the brannings/mitchells straight to jail, likewise denise, the crokers, lee, whitney etc.

    i think for utmost drama and shock and a lasting legacy, ian's own daughter killing her sister would be the best option. I feel they have big plans for Cindy the character and giving her this platform and background will push her onto a new level.


    10/1................... great price if you ask me.
