Alice Branning (Jasmyn Banks) is of course currently playing piggy-in-the-middle between her former employer – and major crush – Michael Moon and his estranged wife Janine…
And as we’ll see next week’s episodes, Alice becomes increasingly fed up of having to choose where her loyalties lie, because of course also stuck between the warring couple is little baby Scarlett, who Alice is looking after for Janine.
But making things worse for Alice is the fact that Janine (Charlie Brooks) is constantly putting pressure on her to work overtime, and combined with pressure from Michael (Steve John Shepherd) to get Alice to sneak Scarlett to him for a visit, poor Alice is one stressed out nanny!

The bitch is back next week on EastEnders when the fabulously catty schemer Janine Moon (Charlie Brooks) turns up on husband Michael’s doorstep out of the blue…
And if she’s hoping to rekindle the romance in her marriage, her timing is good because smitten kitten Alice Branning (Jasmyn Banks) is set to make a move on Michael (Steve John Shepherd) and for a moment or two, he’s tempted!

Fans of EastEnders will of course know that single dad Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) has only just given Alice Branning (Jasmyn Banks) her job back as nanny to his baby girl, Scarlett…
However, as we’ll see in next week’s episodes, cash strapped Michael is left embarrassed when he can’t afford to pay Alice, so he comes up with a somewhat bizarre suggestion as to how they might raise some cash!
It all begins on Monday, March 4th when Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) asks Alice to repay the money she loaned her the week before. Alice says she just has to get her wages from Michael, and goes off to do just that… Read more & comment »
Things haven’t been easy for Alice Branning (Jasmyn Banks) of late, given that she lost her dad Derek over Christmas, then in the New Year, she lost her job in a recruitment agency…
However, it looked like things were on the up and up when Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) took her on as nanny to his baby daughter Scarlett, but as viewers will know, he sacked her after her overprotective brother Joey (David Witts) wrongly assumed Alice was doing more for Michael than merely caring for his child.
So it’s little wonder that as the date of Derek’s birthday rolls around, Alice is left yet more despondent when she realises that nobody other than herself has remembered the event. Read more & comment »

As mentioned in the title of this article, Alice Branning is set to become a nanny for struggling single dad Michael Moon after she loses her office job…
We’ll have more on that in a moment, but first, as to the other storyline mentioned above, in Thursday night’s visit to Walford, teen mum Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) will be furious when she finds out that Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) is going on a two-week holiday to Cornwall to visit his mum Peggy, and he’s taking little Lexi with him!
Lola is of course fed up of Phil calling all the shots and never consulting her over decisions about Lexi, and she’s not happy that she won’t get to see her daughter for two weeks, so in a rage, she tells her granddad Billy (Perry Fenwick) that she wants him to call social worker Trish with a view to her stopping Phil from taking Lexi… Read more & comment »
It was reported before Christmas that on the day of Derek Branning’s funeral, his son Joey would break down and confess a huge secret to his sister Alice (Jasmyn Banks) and it now appears that the secret Joey’s set to spill is that he, along with several others, watched Derek die of a heart attack while doing nothing to help him!
Fans of the show will of course know that Derek – who was played by Jamie Foreman – collapsed on the street outside his brother Max’s house on Christmas Day.
As he fell to the floor clutching his chest, though Joey initially moved as though to help, he was stopped by Derek’s former lover Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) and as we saw, Joey (David Witts) Kat, Max (Jake Wood) and Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) only went to Derek’s side after he’d died… Read more & comment »

It all begins when Tanya gives Alice a makeover, and, delighted with her new look, she’s soon upset when Derek sees her and angrily tells her he hates her new image.
However, Alice stands up to her dad and tells him it’s tough that he doesn’t like it because she does!
But as soon as Alice has stormed off, Derek tells Tanya that he won’t forgive her for interfering and turning Alice from girl-next-door to sexy minx, threatening as he leaves, “This isn’t over.”
Meanwhile, Alice has gone to the Queen Vic, where she’s flattered as the regulars compliment her on her new look, but when Derek walks in and is again cruel to her, Alice once again storms off… Read more & comment »
In this week’s Now magazine, it’s the battle of the soap babes as both Corrie’s Natalie Gumede and EastEnders’ Jasmyn Banks received sexy makeovers courtesy of the magazine…
And as you can see, the difference in Jasmyn is quite astonishing, because as Alice Branning, she is a tad dowdy most of the time and more used to accessorizing with a Hello Kitty hair slide than a studded leather ensemble!
Natalie is also a good deal more glam then her nutty Corrie character Kirsty Soames, but even as new mum Kirsty, Natalie’s hair just plain rocks.
However, back to Jasmyn, and while taking part in the photo shoot, she also took time out to discuss how she’s settled in to the ‘Enders cast.
She said, “I’m having the best time ever,” adding, “I’d auditioned before a few times – I first did one when I was 14 and then a few years later for the role of Lauren Branning… Read more & comment »

As fans of EastEnders will know, over the last few weeks, we’ve heard a few tidbits of information about Derek Branning’s son Joey, who, so far, has refused to see his dad.
However, Joey’s sister Alice, who’s played by Walford newcomer Jasmyn Banks, does want to meet her errant father, and in forthcoming episodes, she’s set to do just that after Derek (Jamie Foreman) spots her spying on him as he goes about his dubious Albert Square business.
But of course, initially, Derek has no idea who Alice is, but is bowled over when she reveals she’s his daughter, and in a fit of evidently long overdue paternalism, he wants Alice to be fully integrated into the Branning clan… Read more & comment »
