Vince Morse, who is the former fiancé of EastEnders star Jessie Wallace, has told People that he wants to reignite his relationship with her.
As you may recall, last year, Jessie – who of course plays Kat Moon – ditched Morse on the morning of their wedding after it was revealed that he sent sexually explicit pictures of her to his former girlfriend.
At the time, Morse gave several interviews to tabloid newspapers, claiming how sorry he was and saying that he’d been “stupid” to try to convince his ex to take part in a threesome with himself and Jessie.
Not unreasonably, a humiliated Jessie responded that she would never forgive him for his actions, and soon after the aborted wedding, she rejoined the cast of EastEnders…
However, last week, it was revealed that due to her being “exhausted”, Jessie has been written out of the show for at least three months.
Today, the People quote Morse as saying, “Jessie and I are talking now, I don’t want to say too much but I want to get her back.
“I know I’ve made a complete muppet of myself by talking about her but it’s worked and she is talking to me now.
“Sometimes I think I will get her back. I don’t know if she will be able to forgive me but hopefully she will.
“Things sometimes sort themselves out for the right reasons. I don’t want to jeopardise things, she is the best thing that happened to me.”
An unnamed source added, “Jessie has realised that she needs to put her wellbeing first and the show bosses were very accommodating.”
Well, good luck to Jessie, whatever she decides to do about Morse, but personally, I think he’s now got the “media” bug, and I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him.
