EASTENDERS star Lorraine Stanley has hinted that Karen Taylor could have a new man in her life very soon.

After losing her daughter Chantelle back in September 2020, Karen decided to end her romance with Billy Mitchell because she wasn't in the right frame of mind to have a relationship.

Fast forward six months and Karen is finally ready to get herself back on the market.

After Lucas spots her out and about in the Square, the murderer decides to ask her out for a drink.

Speaking out about the new potential couple, Lorraine said: "She wants something new.

"And along comes this guy, who she is instantly attracted to! She wants to try new things, and I think she thinks why not?

"The loss of Chantelle and her grief with it all is overwhelming so she wants something to distract her and make her feel happy."

However things aren't looking good for Lorraine…

Yesterday we revealed that the serial killer makes Karen his next target as he pretends to be someone else on their date next week.

The preacher turned murderer – who is played by actor Don Gilet – killed five Walford residents before he was sent to prison in 2016. 

And Karen knows nothing about his vile past…

Elsewhere in Walford Karen's ex Billy isn't having a good time either.

Billy and his ex-wife Honey are thrown into a state of panic when their daughter Janet goes missing.

The exes have locked horns in recent weeks after Billy discovered that Honey is dating Jay Brown, the man he brought up as his own.

But they're brought back down to earth when they realise that they forgot to pick the teen up from a talent audition.

Will they be able to find her?
