I recently chatted to EastEnders newcomer Jacqueline Jossa to hear about the surprise twist ahead for her character Lauren Branning, who is about to discover Stacey Slater's darkest secret.

Lauren figuring out that Stacey killed Archie should definitely make her one to watch in the coming weeks, but whether she will prove to be the Walford favourite's worst nightmare remains to be seen.

What's it like working with Jake Wood, who plays Max?
"He's brilliant - he was one of the first people I met so he took me round the Square and we really got on well. All we do is laugh on set and we have a great relationship. He's great to work with and I pick up a lot from him!"

Is there anyone else who you particularly enjoy working with?
"I love working with Lorna, who plays Abi, because we just really get along and it's quite strange how much we have in common! I also love working with Shona McGarty, Ricky Norwood and Bunmi Mojekwu. I love working with everyone really! Also, Lacey Turner was amazing to work with on this storyline, and Jo Joyner is fantastic."

We've seen the tough side of Lauren quite often so far - would you like us to see her softer side in the future?
"Yes, and you definitely do see that softer side of Lauren soon! But acting tough is just a front for Lauren anyway - she's not horrible 24/7 and it's just something that she hides behind."

Finally, Lauren was dumped by her boyfriend recently - is there anyone on the Square who you'd like to see her get together with?
"I think Lauren and Fatboy would work quite well, because Fatboy is just hilarious and Lauren is quite dry. That would be quite strange because you just wouldn't imagine it! Or maybe even her and Darren, because you just wouldn't expect Lauren and Darren Miller to be together. And Lauren would love it but hate it at the same time!"
