Albert Square fans will, no doubt, be treated to another nail-biting storyline as long-term character Tanya Branning makes her exit.
Writers are apparently working on a new plotline for the departure of Jo Joyner, who has announced she is pregnant with twins.
The actress, who plays the wife of Walford's love rat Max Branning, is "absolutely delighted" to be expecting her first children with actor husband Neil Madden.
"Everyone is thrilled for Jo. Because it’s twins, she’s already got a bit of a bump so viewers can expect lots of big bags and cushions in her scenes over the coming months.” An EastEnders source says.
