Fans of EastEnders may know that Jo Joyner, who plays Tanya Branning, is set to leave the show for a few weeks in order to spend time with her young family…

And of course, given the intense drama that’s focused on the arrival and subsequent departure of Tanya’s love rival Kirsty – who married Max Branning last summer – Jo may well be in need of a break!

The storyline has of course dominated the soap’s plotlines for weeks now, and earlier this week, we saw Tanya telling Max it was over between when he confessed that he still has feelings for Kirsty…

So Max has of course been left homeless and womanless, however Jake Wood – who of course plays serial philanderer Max – has told Inside Soap magazine that although Kirsty (Kierston Wareing) has left Walford, he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of her and Max getting back together!

He said, “I don’t know if there’s a future for them, but Kierston is a great addition to our cast – and I hope she’ll be staying for a lot longer!”

Indeed she is, and I’ve loved watching her, so it’s good news for me and the other viewers who loved Kirsty’s wrangling on-screen to hear that it’s not the last we’ve seen of her as she’ll make an appearance again next week.

As we reported earlier this week, Max will find Kirsty staying with her brother Adam, but there’s a shocking twist in store when he turns up…

Of that, Jake said of Kirsty’s violent brother, “He’s a drug addict and the situation is far from safe.

“Even though Max is angry with Kirsty, he steps in to try to protect her from Adam, and ends up getting badly beaten up himself.

“Of course, EastEnders is a family show that’s on early, so they’ll show as much as they can within those limits – but the situation gets pretty rough!”

Indeed it does, and though we’re sworn to secrecy over the outcome of Max’s encounter with Adam, we can tell you that it could prove the catalyst for brining Max and Kirsty close once again!

For now, here’s a sneak peek look at tonight’s episode of EastEnders, which sees a furious Dot trying to make Cora see the error of her ways…
