Lucy Beale is in for an eventful beginning to her week on ‘EastEnders’, after she suffers a head injury following a row with her secret beau Max Branning.
In scenes airing on Monday night, Lucy (Hetty Bywater) goes to Max (Jake Wood) for comfort after her father, Ian (Adam Woodyatt) refuses to take her business idea seriously.

However, when Max confesses he’s actually on Ian’s side in the argument, the pair find themselves embroiled in a row, which climaxes with Lucy falling and hitting her head.

Max quickly tends to her injury, although it certainly looks like there’s a lot of tension in the air.
It was recently revealed that later this year Lucy will be killed off in a dramatic ‘whodunnit’ story arc.

It's been reported a number of Albert Square residents could be potential suspects, though viewers will not discover who did the deed until the show’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
The cast of the soap have been photographed filming the scenes for Lucy’s funeral, though they gave no indication as to who the culprit could be as it looked like all of her friends and family would be in attendance.
Watch Max and Lucy come to blows on ‘Eastenders’ this Monday, April 14 at 8pm.
