As fans of EastEnders will know, Lauren and Joey Branning are about to start a steamy affair, and in tonight’s show, they seal their new found relationship with a kiss, and we have a preview clip for you after the jump.
However, while speaking to The Sun’s new TV mag, Jacqueline Jossa who of course plays the role of Lauren, has said that her co-star David Witts – who plays Lauren’s cousin Joey – “Isn’t at all sexy!”
I can therefore only assume Jacqueline has Fit Bloke Blindness, which is like being colour blind only sufferers evidently can’t spot a hot bloke.
However, both Jacqueline and David revealed to the magazine that they found that first kiss on-set somewhat awkward…
David said, “I went bright red when we rehearsed it.”
Jacqueline jokingly added, “I didn’t blush – but David was like: ‘Can we do another one please?’
She concluded, “It doesn’t feel like a real kiss because you’ve got four cameras pointing at you.
“It’s not something we go home and discuss with our partners. It’s irrelevant.”
And when David remarked, “It’s Lauren kissing Joey, not Jacqueline kissing David,” Jacqueline said, “Oh, Lord, never! No offence…”
David however was of course voted Sexiest Male at a recent soap awards ceremony, and when asked what she thinks other women see in her co-star, Jacqueline said, “It’s that smouldering look he does.
“His best look is when he’s got no top on, or when he wears a T-shirt, with his ripped-ness coming through.
“But that’s Joey – David Witts isn’t sexy.”
Modest David agreed, saying, “I’m not sexy at all. I’m a bit camp, slightly posh and I sing a lot.
“I’m different from Joey in almost every way imaginable. I’ve never been a player.
“And I’m punching majorly above my weight with my girlfriend.”
O bless him. How sweet!
Here’s the clip from tonight’s show…
