As her EastEnders character Tanya Branning, we’ve seen actress Jo Joyner getting up to a spot of romantic naughtiness with Max (Jake Wood) in his Car Lot portakabin office in the past…
However, Jo has revealed that it’s not only on-set where she’s prone to a spot of illicit kissing and cuddling!
In an appearance on All Star Mr & Mrs – which airs tomorrow night on ITV1 at 8pm – Jo confessed that she and hubby Neil Madden were once caught by police as they shared “a little kiss” in their car while at a park.
She said, “The police took our details and they said where’s your place of birth and when.
“I said Essex, I said ‘I bet you don’t see that many of us here.’ And he said ‘What? With so many clothes on?’
“I was fully clothed – it was just a little kiss.”

Masood’s brother AJ is headed to Walford – we’ll meet him in the episode that airs on July 9th – and it seems he’s going to make an enemy of Derek Branning within hours of setting foot on Square soil!

But of course, it all ends in tears when not only does Masood fall out, Derek’s car meets said shopping trolley, which was going at a fair velocity… Read more & comment »
In what might be described as a #brotherfantasy news snippet – given I’ve always had a bit of a crush on EastEnders star Nitin Ganatra who plays Masood – there was good news this morning as we learned that actor Paul Sharma has been cast in the role of Mas’s brother AJ.
Paul, who’s previously starred in The Office, Life on Mars, Dalziel and Pascoe, Doctors and Gavin & Stacey in the role of Stacey’s former fiancé Achmed – who we met when Uncle Bryn took Gavin and Smithy on a stag night in his local pub – will arrive on the Square later this year.
Described by the show’s bosses as “a cheeky chancer”, AJ – who reportedly makes major decision based on the results of tossing a coin – is set to cause havoc on the Square from the get go, and he manages to drag a – willing it must be said – Masood into his antics as the brothers reacquaint themselves.
