Jessie Wallace has been arrested after allegedly attacking a police officer in a drunken nightclub brawl.

The EastEnders actress, 50, was held after the row erupted outside the Flex nightspot in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, in front of partygoers.

It has been reported Wallace, who was later released after being given a caution, was with her new boyfriend at the time.

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.”

The arrest comes after Wallace was pictured looking bleary-eyed earlier this month as she left the British Soap Awards barefoot.

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’d been cheating.

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

Bosses had held crisis talks and it was decided her character Kat Slater 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 Ritchie.

The couple had a five-year break from the screen before they returned in the autumn of 2010 for another five years, before going on to appear in their six-part BBC series ‘Redwater’.

Wallace recently celebrated becoming a grandmother her daughter Tallulah, 17, had a baby boy.
