EastEnders: are Peter and Lauren on their way back to Walford…with their baby?

OK, here’s what we know from EastEnders boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins

There is going to be a big, shock arrest in the Lucy Beale murder case…

“We rested the story to give everyone a breather, but that kicks up quite massively over the summer, with a big arrest that’s going to take us up to September. And a few old faces return!”

And that’s where we think Peter Beale (Ben Hardy) and Lauren Branning may come in…with their baby.

Yes, we know Ben’s been in America, making X-Men: Apocalypse, but that doesn’t mean he can’t come back.

And Ben himself tweeted: “Maybe one day Peter will come back to visit Lauren and Pete Jr [that better be his name].”

We know Lauren will return from her life with Peter in New Zealand after actress Jacqueline Jossa has completed her maternity leave, following the birth of her daughter, Ella on February 15 this year.

Will she return with his baby?

And will Peter follow when he hears of the shock arrest over his twin sister Lucy’s murder?

We wouldn’t be surprised.
