Jessie Wallace has been issued a "clear warning" by 'EastEnders' bosses after she was arrested last weekend.

The 50-year-old actress - who plays Kat Slater on the BBC One soap - received a conditional caution after she was arrested on Sunday (19.06.22) on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and drunk and disorderly conduct, and the show's producers have told her such behaviour is "unacceptable".

A BBC spokesperson has told The Sun newspaper: "Senior bosses have spoken to Jessie Wallace about the incident and issued a clear warning that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable and Jessie has expressed her deep regret."

It comes after Jessie was released without charge after accepting the caution.

A Suffolk Police spokesman confirmed: “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 earlier been pictured watching Madness at Thetford Forest in nearby Brandon, and was filmed dancing to the band with her builder lover.

They got together after the actress dated greengrocer Paul Keepin, but they split in 2019 after two years.

Her four-year relationship with singer Tim Arnold ended in 2016 and five years earlier she infamously called off her wedding to catering businessman Vincent Morse after she found he had been unfaithful.

Jessie made a comeback to 'EastEnders' in September 2020 after she was kicked off the soap for allegedly drinking on set.

The show's bosses had held crisis talks and it was decided her character Kat would be written out for two months to give Wallace a chance to “sort herself out”.

She joined the soap in 2000 and quickly became a fan favourite as the girlfriend of Alfie Moon, played by 58-year-old Shane Richie.
