But the guilt and grief of her decision hasn’t been easy to deal with and Laurel hit rock bottom a few weeks ago, turning to alcohol as comfort.
During scenes which aired tonight, it became obvious that the stress levels in Laurel’s life had reached an all time high.
She recently found out Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) was pregnant with Jaime Tate’s (Alexander Lincoln) baby and she has become increasingly worried with her stepdaughter growing close to Kim Tate (Claire King).
Those watching at home saw Laurel overhear Jai talking to Rishi about their situation and he tried to explain himself: “I’m worried about you, OK. I wasn’t moaning, I was asking advice from my dad.”
