EastEnders fans are set to see two of the younger characters become a lot closer in the coming weeks.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Dean (Matt Di Angelo) and Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) will have a fling.

In an interview with Inside Soap, Di Angelo said: "It's true, Dean and Lauren are going to get together - but it's nothing serious. It was fun for me, being in bed with Jacqueline Jossa, who plays Lauren.

"But I don't think Dean cares too much for Lauren. She's just a distraction and I can imagine he's thinking about Linda (Kellie Bright) the whole time."
