Fans of EastEnders will of course know that young Abi Branning is currently dating Jay Mitchell (Jamie Borthwick) who’s her first real boyfriend…

And though her character is only 16 years old, as is the actress herself, Lorna Fitzgerald has revealed that she’d love to see Abi and Jay wed!

Speaking via the show’s official website, Lorna said, “I’d like them to run away and get married so I can wear a pretty dress. That’d be nice!

“I think they do stay together, but it would be nice again if Lola [Danielle Harold] came into it, like how it was in the beginning; ‘Who will he choose?’ Hopefully me!

“But I think they’re going to stay together for the long-term. I’ve got a lot of scenes with him coming up in February time, Valentine’s Day.”

Lorna continued, “My least favourite thing about playing Abi is she’s not really cool.

“I’d like to play someone really cool, who walks around in heels all the time, has her hair always done…

“But she doesn’t get to do that, she just has to be normal. I’d like her to dye her hair or do something crazy, but I can’t imagine Abi drinking.

“She’s a bit too normal, she’s very under-age… so whipping out the vodka might be a bit awkward…

“I don’t really see her doing it, but it might be cool. She has grown up a lot from what she used to do, but I’d like her to be a little bit naughtier – not always good.”

Well, rumour has it that on Valentine’s Day, Abi and Jay are going to take their relationship to a physical level, but we’ll have more on that next week.
