Furious Vanessa Gold will brawl with Tanya Jessop after discovering her affair with Max Branning on 'EastEnders'
EastEnders' Tanya Jessop will be attacked by her love rival in front of her son.
Furious Vanessa Gold (Zoe Lucker) lashes out after discovering the beautician (Jo Joyner) has been having an affair with her fiancé Max Branning (Jake Wood), who is also Tanya's ex-husband.
Vanessa storms into Tanya's house and punches her before the pair grapple on the floor, much to the horror of the blonde's current husband Greg (Stefan Booth) and three-year-old Oscar.
A source told the News of the World newspaper: "She hunts Tanya down to her house and forces her way in before attacking her.
"There is nothing like a woman scorned but Tanya doesn't take it lying down. She gives back as good as she gets. It leaves little Oscar in a right state."
The confrontation happens after Tanya ends the affair when Max's brother Jack (Scott Maslen) discovers the truth - but her former husband confesses to Vanessa and ends their relationship.
The insider added: "The fight will be as explosive as Tanya and Max's recent sex scenes."
Tanya and Max first split three years ago after she discovered his affair with daughter-in-law Stacey Slater.
