Next week’s episodes of EastEnders are set to feature that most staple of the soapy diet; the will-they-won’t-they wedding day!
However, in this instance, it’s rather more a why-didn’t-they cliffhanger as we already know that Sharon Rickman (Letitia Dean) and Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) will in fact call off their wedding…
The big question is, why?
Well, there are of course a number of reasons as to why one of them might ditch the other at the altar. For example, Sharon’s feelings for old flame Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) might prompt Jack to wonder if she would remain loyal to him if she becomes his wife… Read more & comment »
Coming up next week on EastEnders, Sharon Rickman and Jack Branning’s friends and family have arranged hen and stag nights for them, however, Jack’s is set to go spectacularly awry when he ends up locked in the office of R&R with Phil Mitchell!
And as we reported earlier, after Sharon (Letitia Dean) and Phil (Steve McFadden) found themselves revisiting their former passion once again, the big question is, will Phil tell Jack (Scott Maslen) about it with the sole intention of winding the groom to be up?
The drama begins when, in the episode that airs on Monday, April 8th, Joey (David Witts) and Fatboy (Ricky Norwood) have conspired to make Jack’s stag do memorable via the medium of having hired a stripper… Read more & comment »

The drama begins in the episode that airs on Monday 8th April as Sharon (Letitia Dean) is about to leave to go over to Tanya’s for what she thinks will be a quiet night in with her mate over a bottle of wine…

Walford resident Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) is of course gearing up for his wedding to Sharon Rickman (Letitia Dean) so the last thing he needs is any reminders of his former marriage to Ronnie…
However, he’s about to get a stark one when Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) informs him that her sister Ronnie – who was of course played by Samantha Womack – is being released from prison.
She was of course sent down for the abduction of Kat Moon’s baby boy Tommy, who she ‘swapped’ with her own dead infant son, James… Read more & comment »
Fans of EastEnders have reacted angrily to the news that yet another cast member is leaving – Steve John Shepherd who plays Michael Moon has recently quit the show – and many have branded the soap “unrecognizable” as a whole host of cast members have departed in recent months.
And it seems that annoyance is being reflected in the soap’s viewing figures, which fell to around 6.36 million during last Thursday’s episode. To put that into context, Coronation Street was viewed by 9.5million of us last Monday night.
The Daily Mirror reports that fans have taken to internet forums to express their anger over the ever-changing faces on the show, with one viewer writing, “It will take a genius to save the train-wreck that is EastEnders.” Read more & comment »
Fans of EastEnders will know that Sharon Rickman is due to wed her fiancé Jack Branning next month, however, it’s been reported today that recidivist bride Sharon is set to call the wedding off at the eleventh hour after learning that Jack has been contacting his former wife, jailbird Ronnie.
And according to the Daily Mirror, Sharon’s decision not to marry Jack (Scott Maslen) could pave the way for a romance with Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) which has of course been brewing ever since Sharon (Letitia Dean) arrived back in Walford last year.
But of the forthcoming wedding day drama, a show insider said, “Sharon hoped her wedding day would be one of the happiest days of her life… Read more & comment »
EastEnders favourite, Scott Maslen, has quit his role as Jack Branning on the award-winning BBC soap, it has been confirmed.
Scott, who has also appeared on the hugely popular BBC dancing talent show Strictly Come Dancing, has played the most loved Branning brother for 6 years, and in that time has been at the centre of some of shows most controversial and hard-hitting storylines it’s history, most notably the highly-publicised baby-swap drama in early 2011 with his on-screen wife, Ronnie Mitchell (Samantha Womack).

As we reported earlier, when Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) believes he’s killed Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) he goes into panic mode and initially plans to flee Walford…
However, though it will transpire that he didn’t kill Phil, he will be at his love rival’s mercy because of course, if Phil tells the police the truth about what happened, Jack could well go to prison, and for an ex police officer, that isn’t a happy prospect!
But in the episode that airs on Tuesday 26th February, Jack still believes that he’s killed Phil, and in a desperate state, he gets drunk in the Vic, and after having had several too many, he declares that he’s just like his brother Derek and adds that he’s going to end up in prison… Read more & comment »
In next week’s episodes of EastEnders, former copper Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) could find himself facing a long time behind bars after he attacks love rival Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) after a row over Sharon Rickman turns violent!
The drama begins on Monday, February 25th when Jack tells Sharon (Letitia Dean) that she could earn far more money running a club in the West End than she’s currently earning running R&R for Phil…
So, convinced that he’s right, Sharon approaches Phil and asks for a pay rise, however, he’s quick to dismiss her and tells her if she doesn’t want the job, she should just quit. Read more & comment »
New Year on Albert Square will be a happy one for Sharon Rickman as she’s become engaged to the man she loves…
But the big question is, who is that man? Is it her current boyfriend Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) who’s going to propose soon, or is it Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) who’s set to spring a marriage proposal on Sharon on New Year’s day?
Well, we don’t want to spoil the surprise for you, but what we can tell you is that after some initial confusion and conflicted emotions, Sharon’s decision becomes an easy one.
It all begins on New Year’s Eve when Sharon (Letitia Dean) has persuaded Phil to come to the Vic and stop being miserable! At the pub, Sharon splits her time between Jack and Phil and as Big Ben chimes, Phil slyly tells Jack that this time next year, Sharon will be his wife… Read more & comment »
As we reported earlier this week, in the New Year, Phil Mitchell is set to propose to Sharon Rickman, and unlike the last time he placed an engagement ring on her finger, this time his offer of marriage is a real one!
However, Phil (Steve McFadden) isn’t the only Walford male hearing the sound of wedding bells in his head as it turns out that Sharon’s boyfriend Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) is also going to propose to her.
And as I mentioned in the title of this post, I wonder if Sharon (Letitia Dean) holds some kind of a record for having the most proposals of marriage ever, because of course she nearly married fiancé John Hewland – who she ditched at the altar before returning to the Square earlier this year – and prior to that, she was married to Dennis Rickman (Nigel Harman).
Before Dennis, Sharon was married to Grant Mitchell (Ross Kemp) and before that even – in 1987 – Sharon was engaged to curate Duncan Boyd, but she later called off the wedding. And in 2002, Sharon was engaged to Tom Banks, but he died while rescuing Little Mo Slater from a house that her violent ex-husband had set alight… Read more & comment »
In last night’s visit to Walford, we saw that Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) was overjoyed when a mystery benefactor gave him a wad of cash and a travel tickets to enable him to go to Germany to bring back samples of goods from the famous Christmas markets…
And though his wife Kat (Jessie Wallace) implored Alfie not to go – citing the expense as the reason for her objection – so that she wouldn’t be tempted to stray from the marital bed in his absence, a happy Alfie joyfully thanked the mystery donator and went off to pack.
And within minutes, Kat had a text from her lover saying how happy he was that she and he could be together again when Alfie had gone.
But of course, we also saw in last night’s show that Kat threw away the key to the bedsit where she has formerly met up with her lover, however, undeterred, the mystery man comes up with a new plan tonight… Read more & comment »
Fans of EastEnders will of course know that the whole Who Is Kat Moon’s Lover storyline has been going on for about 16 years now, and many fans – me included – have given up caring who it is…
However, the show’s bosses have decided to finally end the speculation about who Kat’s mystery man is over Christmas when, following a dramatic row between Kat (Jessie Wallace) and hubby Alfie (Shane Richie) she blurts out the name of her lover in front of a pub full of punters.
The dramatic revelation apparently comes about after Alfie goes for one of the Branning brothers, prompting Kat to yell, “You’ve got the wrong brother!”
Of course, exactly which Branning brother will be outed is being kept a closely guarded secret, but the news has prompted more speculation that the Branning in question will be Derek (Jamie Foreman) and that Alfie will kill him! Read more & comment »
We reported last month how dodgy Derek Branning was reportedly leaving the award-winning BBC soap, EastEnders, at Christmas, and now it seems that there will be no return for the loathsome character, as cast have been spotted filming what is believed to be his funeral.
Christmas time is never normally a happy place for the residents of Walford (it’s a wonder the still celebrate it to be honest) and this year will be no exception, as a huge Branning family secret will revealed, resulting in not only a whole festive season of heartbreak, but the dramatic exit of villainous Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman) from the clan.

The whole Who’s Having An Affair With Kat Moon storyline has gone on for about 23 years now, and from a starting line up for five suspects – who were Michael Moon, Ray Dixon and all three Branning brothers – we’re now down to a choice of Max, Derek or Jack Branning…
However, as we saw a few weeks ago, Kat (Jessie Wallace) confessed the affair to long-suffering husband Alfie (Shane Richie) and he – of course – forgave her transgression yet again, given that she vowed it was over.
But of course, she refused to tell Alfie who her lover was/is, and has since dedicated herself to righting the wrongs in her marriage.
And it’s to that end that she invites Alfie out on a date – a romantic meal for two – next week, but it doesn’t get off to a good start when all the Branning brothers turn up for a game of poker… Read more & comment »
