EastEnders Jessie Wallace arrested for ‘attacking cop after drunken club fight

EastEnders star Jessie Wallace has been arrested for attacking a police officer in a drunken bust-up outside a nightclub.

The actress – who is best known for playing Kat Slater on the BBC One soap – was allegedly taken in by police following a row outside Flex club in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

According to The Sun, Jessie was with her partner at the time before being released with a conditional caution.

She was cautioned for the incident at around 2am on Sunday morning (June 19).

A source told The Mirror that she was accompanied by a man when she was held by three cops after becoming abusive.

The publication further reported that Jessie accepted the police caution.

The 50-year-old soap veteran had earlier been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and drunk and disorderly conduct.

A Suffolk Police spokesman told The Daily Star: “A 50 year-old woman was arrested early on Sunday morning in St Andrew’s Street, Bury St Edmunds, on suspicion of assaulting a police officer/drunk and disorderly conduct and was released without charge after receiving a conditional caution.”

She had been attending a Madness concert at Thetford Forest, and was snapped posing with fans and dancing to the music with her builder boyfriend.

The Daily Star has contacted a representative for Jessie, while EastEnders refused to comment.

Jessie previously opened up on her relationship with her builder boyfriend on Instagram back in May.

It came after the lovers were pictured in a van together during an outing.

But after the photographs circulated, Jessie was keen to shed light on their relationship.

Confirming their romance, she told her followers: "FYI we have known each other for 34 years and been together for a year!"

Jessie previously dated greengrocer Paul Keepin, but they split in 2019 after two years.

Following their split, a source told The Sun: "Jessie and Paul recently ended things and have cut contact with each other.

"She is moving on and wants the New Year to be a fresh start when she will focus on work. After a quiet Christmas with her daughter and her closest friends, she is knuckling down for 2020."
