EastEnders fans in hysterics after THIS happened in last night's episode

EastEnders fans have taken to social media to share how much they loved last night's episode... did you see this hilarious moment?

Last night's EastEnders saw plenty of dramatic moments... from Mel Owen getting to talk to Hunter as he called from prison, to Rainie Branning finding out that Max has moved on with another woman.

But the storyline that has got fans talking was the Slater's desperate attempt to track down runaway Jean.

When she failed to turn up for her appointment with her cancer specialist, Stacey and Martin had almost given up any hope of getting Jean the medical attention she so desperately needs.

But after a passing comment from Big Mo triggered something in Stacey's memory from her childhood, the gang soon worked out that Jean was hiding out in a caravan site that they used to go to on holiday.

The caravan chase was everyone's favourite part of last night's EastEnders

As everyone jumped into Kat's cab to track Jean down, they had high hopes of bringing Jean home where she belongs.

Unfortunately Jean had other ideas and as soon as Stacey, Kat, Lily and Martin clocked her from across the carpark she ran away from them.

The moment that saw Martin and Stacey chasing Jean through the campsite like some sort of comedy sketch has left fans in stitches, and asking one very important question... just how did little Jean Slater manage to outrun Martin Fowler?!

But after the lighthearted moment of Jean's Usain Bolt impression came the heartbreaking ending to last night's episode which saw Jean close all the windows and curtains in her caravan and hide under her duvet, trying to block out her family's shouting.

Clearly struggling since not taking her medication, Jean was left terrified as they begged her to come out of the caravan.

But will Stacey manage to find a way to coax her mum out and back home to be with her family?

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
