Jacqueline has been on maternity leave after welcoming her daughter Ella into the world earlier this year, but we will be pleased to see her back on our screens!

Lauren will return to the Square for the start of dad Max's trial. He stands accused of killing Lucy Beale, which Lauren knows he didn't do.

And that's not all, she makes a return with a baby bump of her own - before giving birth to a little boy called Louie!

We can't wait!
