EastEnders SPOILER: Jay torn between Lola and Ruby

Well, this is awkward!

Jay Brown has got some big decisions to make when he finds himself split between Ruby Allen and ex girlfriend Lola Pearce next week.

With Jay's fleeting romance with Ruby over before it really began, the pair have been spending more time together now that the court case for Ruby's sexual abuse is over.

But just as it looked like Ruby and Jay might have a chance to get back together, his ex Lola came back to Albert Square and it didn't take long for anyone to realise there is definitely still a spark between them.

However, with Ben banning the pair from spending too much time alone together, Jay and Lola haven't shared more than a quick kiss and a few drinks in the pub.

But just as Jay seemed to want more from Lola, Ben dropped the bombshell that she is engaged to someone else.

To try and take his mind off Lola, Jay decides to try and move on, and when Ruby asks him to share a drink with her to celebrate the fact her attackers, Ross and Matt, have been given their sentences, Jay quickly says yes.

But he's feeling guilty about his kiss with Lola, and ends up confessing everything to Ruby.

While Ruby is surprised by his confession, she is left even more shocked when Jay admits that he wants them to make a go of things again and get their relationship officially back on track.

To Jay's surprise - and hers - Ruby agrees and the pair celebrate.

But their celebrations are soon over when Jay discovers he's needed at the Mitchells' because Louise has been kidnapped.

Ruby agrees, but it is only when Lola and Jay come back to the pub that Ruby realises she has just agreed to give her boyfriend's ex a job!
