Lucas Johnson plots prison escape

EastEnders serial-killer Lucas Johnson is slowly, but surely, worming his way back into Denise’s head…

When Jordan and Denise visit Lucas, he reveals that he wants to get involved in a work scheme, however he claims his only chance is if Denise speaks to his Governor.

Jordan sets a plan into motion next week – he wants to help his dad escape prison.
