EastEnders star arrested for ‘assaulting police officer’ outside nightclub

Entertainment

EastEnders star Jessie Wallace was arrested outside a nightclub on Sunday on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and being drunk and disorderly.

The actress, known for playing Kat Slater in the BBC soap, was pictured at a Madness gig in Thetford Forest in Suffolk hours before her arrest in Bury St Edmonds.

A Suffolk Police spokesman told Sky News: “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.”

Mobile phone video from outside Flex nightclub appears to show Wallace being restrained by officers.

Wallace’s Kat Slater is one of the most well-known EastEnders’ characters of the last 20 years, where she had a tumultuous relationship with Alfie Moon, played by Shane Richie.

Fifty-year-old Wallace currently features in the soap – her third stint since her debut in 2000.

She was reportedly suspended from EastEnders for two months in 2020 over an “incident” on set and was convicted of drink driving in 2003.
