Lauren (Alexis Peterman) carries on causing trouble at The Mill in forthcoming episodes - continuing to bully Imogen, scheming against returnee Mrs Tembe and clashing with Karen when she's finally confronted over her antics.
The show's new villain also winds up Kevin (Simon Rivers) at work, but it's Harrison (James Larkin) who she really upsets when she gleefully admits that she has been cheating on him.
Here's a first look at the moment that Harrison completely loses it with Lauren - literally going in for the kill…
In the aftermath of his fatal attack, Harrison embarks on a plan to frame the murder on a serial killer called The Scraper who's currently at large. But with Lauren having so many enemies, could it be that someone else will get the blame for this?
