EastEnders viewers were left fearing for Louise Mitchell’s safety after her mother kidnapped her in gripping scenes in the BBC soap.

Troubled Lisa Fowler is battling mental health issues and became increasingly disturbed in Monday night’s instalment.

Tense scenes saw her sneak Louise out of hospital, after deciding she needed to be saved from her father Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

Fans are worried about how far Lisa (Lucy Benjamin) will get – and whether Louise is now in danger.

The schoolgirl (Tilly Keeper) had been recovering in hospital after she was injured at her prom.

One person wrote on Twitter: “Oh gosh, Lisa technically kidnapped her daughter.

“Lisa not in the right frame of mind I’m scared for Louise’s safety.”

“Lisa is actually worrying me, she better not put Louise in danger,” worried another fan.

Viewers also said they were impressed with Benjamin, who recently returned to the soap after several years away.

“Lucy Benjamin is playing a blinder as Lisa in EastEnders,” said one.

Another said: “Absolutely blown away by @lucy_benjamin tonight, flawless acting.”
