She has no idea who he really is, not helped by the fact that he’s calling himself by the name of his late son Jordan!

Meeting up with his probation worker, Lucas learns that they’ve got him a job and a flat in Newcastle.

A regretful Lucas insists that he wants to stay in Walford to be near his family.

After meeting up with Lucas, Karen is having a good time. When he’s not looking he snaps a sneaky picture to send to the family chat. Will anyone realise who Lucas really is?
