EASTENDERS’ Lauren Branning finally admitted she no longer loves boyfriend Steven Beale in tonight’s episode.
Troubled Lauren confided in her boss Josh that she was ready to split from overbearing Steven and that she didn’t feel bad about it.
She said: “I don’t love him… I’ve said ti and I don’t feel bad about it. I’m 23-years-old, this can’t be my life. And I’m not just making excuses because I want to be with you. To be honest it’s not anything to do with you.
“All you’ve done is made me see there’s so much more to life than what I’ve got.”
When Josh asked what she’s going to do she took a deep breath and said: “I’m going to leave Steven.”
After watching Lauren and Steven’s romance deteriorate in recent weeks, viewers were thrilled the latter finally found the courage to be honest with her feelings.
One wrote on Twitter: “Yessss Lauren you are doing the right thing????????#Eastenders”
Another said: “Lauren’s seen the light get rid of creepy Steven #EastEnders”

Meanwhile Steven frustrated Lauren’s sister Abi by refusing to give in to her charms and grew increasingly frustrated knowing his relationship is in dire straits.
Elsewhere, Robbie Jackson ended up getting dumped into a bin by Martin and Kush in front of all the market traders after he evicted Donna from her spot after she fell three weeks behind on her rent.
Some fans called the incident a highlight of the episode while others thought that it was bullying and sided with the market boss, claiming he was just following rules.
