EastEnders' Jack Branning is to be kidnapped by Harry Gold's heavies on the eve of his wedding to pregnant girlfriend Ronnie Mitchell
EastEnders' Jack Branning is to be kidnapped on the eve of his wedding.
The Walford bad boy - played by Scott Maslen - will be kidnapped by a gang of thugs after he and brother Max (Jake Wood) force a petrified Harry Gold (Linal Haft) to promise to put a halt to his reign of terror over ex-wife Vanessa (Zoe Lucker), who is now dating Max.
An 'EastEnders' insider explained: "Harry really steps up his campaign against Vanessa over the next few weeks and Max doesn't know what to do. Jack suggests they rough him up a little to get their message across.
"So Max persuades Harry to come and talk but as soon as he arrives Jack pushes him into the wall. He shows Harry that he's messing with the wrong blokes and he's forced to plead with Max to get his brother to stop.
"They let him go after he agrees to quit making Vanessa's life a misery and as far as the Branning brothers are concerned, that's the end of the matter."
However, when Harry decides to act out his revenge by kidnapping Jack the night before his wedding, his pregnant wife Ronnie Mitchell (Samantha Womack) is left wondering whether the nuptials will go ahead.
The source added to the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: "There's no way Harry is going to let them get away with it and he takes great pleasure in showing Jack that he's not one to be messed with either.
"Ronnie has no idea what's going on and viewers will have to wait and see whether he makes it to their wedding."
