Jessica Plummer reveals big EastEnders secrets in new special

EastEnders star Jessica Plummer is set to reveal all the Walford gossip in Secrets From The Square – so stick the kettle on.

The actress, who plays Chantelle Atkins in the BBC soap, joins the likes of Jake Wood, Jessie Wallace and Lacey Turner on the series, which is hosted by Stacey Dooley.

Ahead of the episode airing, Jessica disclosed what it’s been like returning to set amid the coronavirus pandemic and her favourite soap scene from her tenure over the past year.

‘Coming back to film on set was so surreal, it was the first time I’d seen my co-workers and cast members in so long so it was so nice to see everyone,’ she said.

‘And of course, meeting Stacey Dooley was a highlight, I’ve had a bit of girl crush on her too!’

Speaking about her most memorable moment from her time on the soap so far, Jessica said: ‘There’s a scene when Keegan and Tiffany run off to get married, I did my first location shoot for it and we were driving around in the van which was a lot of fun.

‘At the wedding reception Zack  (Keegan) had a speech where he says to Karen ‘where’s the ring?’ and on the day, I was probably deliriously tired, but every time he’d do it he’d say ‘where’s the wing?’ and I just found it hilarious. It was a definite you had to be there moment but I still think about that day all the time!’

Letting loose on who her stand-out characters are, she added: ‘I’ve always loved Jean and her relationship with her daughter Stacey.

‘There was an episode that I watched maybe 10 years ago and the whole episode is just the two of them, it was so good I cried and cried and watched it about 5 times in a row.

‘Even now still when I see either of them on set I get a bit fumbly with my words!’
