Jake takes Lauren prisoner in EastEnders!

EastEnders' Lauren Branning is left fearing for her life when suspected killer Jake Stone takes her prisoner in her own home.

When Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) discovers that chef Jake (Jamie Lomas) was the mystery person who emailed her the night that Lucy Beale died, she tries to find out where he was at the time of the murder.

But when she gets home Lauren is terrified to find Jake has broken into her house and he grabs hold of her to stop her calling for help.

It has already been revealed that police are set to arrest Jake as a suspect for Lucy's murder as a result of a statement made by Lauren.

The drama will screen on EastEnders tonight at 8pm on BBC One.
