Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid celebrated their five-year 'Good Morning Britain' anniversary on Monday as some famous faces congratulated them.
The TV presenter was joined by the former footballer and 'EastEnders' star at a London restaurant.
Max Branning star Jake Wood has lifted the lid on how scenes on 'EastEnders' will work while the actors maintain social distancing.
Jake Wood, who plays Max Branning in EastEnders, has hit out at those who casually mock ginger people during an appearance on Good Morning Britain.
Listen, we all love EastEnders and we definitely all love Max Branning, but we can’t say that we’ve ever been tempted to get a tribute to either tattooed onto any part of our body.
Good news EastEnders’ fans - Max Branning is fi-na-lly due to be released from prison this month and, as you might expect, he is not a happy bunny. In case you missed it, the bad boy businessman was jailed for murdering Lucy Beale last year, despite everybody knowing that he was totally innocent and it was really her evil younger brother Bobby who’d done the deed. Now Max is due to be released and actor Jake Wood has admitted that he hopes Max will be getting revenge on Ian Beale after he knowingly let him go down for a crime he didn’t commit.
EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa has spoken out about her character’s imminent return to Walford. Lauren Branning was last seen in September when she popped over from New Zealand and tried to stop her dad being jailed for murder. In real life, Jac has been taking time out to spend with her fiancé, Dan Osborne, and their adorable daughter, Ella.
Jake Wood has been a staple part of BBC One’s EastEnders for a whopping nine years, often involved in incredibly dramatic and high-profile storylines, so it’s no wonder that the actor decided that he needed a year-long break last year. Viewers were outraged that poor Max was going to rot behind bars until Jake returned to the show, with many fans especially perplexed as so many characters - including his own daughter, Lauren Branning - knew that Bobby was the real murderer. Speaking to Kugan Cassius on his iFL TV YouTube Channel, Jake explained: “I left in July and I haven’t watched an episode since I left.
Jake Wood has a certain je ne sais quoi that has made women weak at the knees ever since he joined EastEnders a whopping ten years ago, with the actor winning over more people than ever when he debuted his sexy dance moves on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2014. Now, Jake has been named the UK’s biggest “weird crush” for the second year running - and he couldn’t be happier about it. Pipping celebs such as Ed Sheeran and Greg Davies to the post, the 43-year-old admitted that he was “honoured” to top Heat magazine’s annual poll, and he is especially chuffed to be the “hottest ginger” in town.
If you follow Jake Wood, aka EastEnders’ Max Branning, on Twitter then you’ll probably know that he is not happy about US insurance company, GEICO, replacing him in their commercials after he refused a major pay cut. The soap actor has been voicing the company’s mascot, the GEICO Gecko, for ten long years and although the ads only air overseas, there is no denying that any Brit abroad felt an instant sense of comfort when they heard Jake’s instantly recognizable voice in US commercials. Breaking the news to his fans over via social media, the 43-year-old shared a link to the new ad that doesn’t include his voice, writing: “Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this is the new voice of the geico gecko.
The EastEnders actress gained the respect of the soap opera’s fans after she agreed to cut her maternity leave short to return to the show for a brief stint. Reprising her role of Lauren Branning, Jacqueline’s decision to film added a little believability to the show’s storyline as she returned to try and save her dad, Max [Jake Wood], from being wrongfully imprisoned for the murder of Lucy Beale.
If, like us, you’re a fan of watching other people watch TV (á la Gogglebox) AND you’re partial to all the drama that can be found on Albert Square, then we’ve got some very good news to brighten up your day. Because, ladies and gents, boys and girls, EastEnders spin-off Back To Ours is BACK for two special episodes featuring some very special guests. For the first episode, Jacqueline Jossa (Lauren), Jake Wood (Max), and Lorna Fitzgerald (Abi) will cosy up on their on-screen sofas to watch some of their most memorable Albert Square moments.
Jacqueline Jossa bid farewell to Lauren Branning back in February, when she gave birth to daughter, Ella, and her pregnant onscreen character jetted off to New Zealand with her beau, Peter Beale. Max (Jake Wood) currently stands accused of murdering Lucy Beale, even though basically everybody knows that it was actually Lucy’s little brother, Bobby, who delivered the fatal blow. Which, in case you had forgotten, Peter had already told Lauren about.
The nation’s long-running ‘weird crush’ already dazzled us with his snake hips when he took part in last year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing, and the potential to have him on our telly screens every single night for three weeks is just too much to handle. The soap star, who plays lovable rouge Max Branning in ‘Enders, is set to take a year-long break from the show and has admitted that he would be more than up for jetting to the Aussie outback for part of that break. Asked if he’d ever appear on ‘I’m A Celeb’, Jake shared: “Yeah, I do really like that show.
