Jake: EastEnders to have a 'Branning Christmas'
The actor's character Max Branning who is rumoured to be embroiled in an affair with Kat Moon is set to tie the knot again with ex-wife Tanya over the festive period, and Jake is expecting some drama.
He revealed at the TVChoice Awards: "Max and Tanya are potentially getting remarried, they're planning for that at the moment so we've got to wait and see, and obviously the Kat reveal I think will be some time before Christmas, so it should be a good Christmas, it'll be a Branning Christmas I think."
Jo Joyner, who plays Tanya, is taking a break from the soap early in 2013, and Jake admitted he will miss his co-star.
"Yeah of course. But Jo's got twins and she wanted to take a break and spend some time at home and come back once they're settled at school.
"We've all done that - I took three months last year and I think it's important to come back refreshed and ready to go again. As lovely as it is to be in the show, it's good to take breaks every now and again. You come back and sort of hit the ground running again."
Meanwhile, Kat's husband Alfie, played by Shane Richie, is set to learn of her infidelity later this week.
Shane said: "Friday night is the night where it kicks off, where Alfie finds out, so people had better be watching."
