EastEnders' cast join Jacqueline Jossa for wild hen party

The cast of EastEnders have taken to social media to share a series of wild photos from Jacqueline Jossa’s hen party, all but confirming that her big day is fast approaching.

Jacqueline has played Lauren Branning in the BBC One soap since 2010 and was joined by a whole host of her castmates as she prepared for her wedding to The Only Way Is Essex’s Dan Osborne.

Stars who joined Jac for her ‘last night of freedom’ included Tilly Keeper, who plays Louise Mitchell, Jasmine Armfield, who plays Bex Fowler, Shaheen Jafargholi, who plays Shaki Kazeemi, Jamie Borthwick, who plays Jay Mitchell, Harry Reid, who plays Ben Mitchell, and Aaron Sidwell, who plays Lauren’s obsessive boyfriend Steven Beale.

Unsurprisingly, none of the older EastEnders’ cast, including Jake Wood who plays Jacqueline’s onscreen father, Max Branning, were present for the night out, with the younger generation seemingly going all out as they let their hair down and painted the town red.

Sharing a group photo from the night, Jacqueline thanked her pals for giving her a night to remember, writing: “Last night was amazing! Thanks so much! I love you all!! Xx”, and the cast were all quick to pay tribute to the blushing bride-to-be over on their own social media pages.

Aaron wrote: “Love you all! #Fam” and Jamie poked fun at his miserable face in one of the photos, quipping: “We had the best night didn’t we… #family”.

Jacqueline and Dan are expected to tie the knot this summer after Dan proposed to the actress in June 2015, when the pair went to Greece for her sister’s big day.

The couple first started dating in 2014 and welcomed their first child together, Ella, in February 2015, with Dan also being father to three-year-old Teddy from a previous relationship.

Although the wedding date is yet to be confirmed, we have every faith that Jacqueline’s EastEnders’ family will make sure that her big day is definitely one to remember.
