EastEnders romance for Max and Roxy?
EastEnders' Max Branning and Roxy Mitchell look set to enjoy a steamy affair
EastEnders' Max Branning and Roxy Mitchell look set to enjoy a steamy affair.
While the blonde barmaid - played by Rita Simons - has a daughter, Amy, with Max's brother Jack (Scott Maslen), she soon will have her sights set on romance with the flame-haired businessman, and sets out to seduce him.
Although Max's wife Tanya is currently battling cancer, Jo Joyner - who portrays the stressed-out mum in the BBC One soap - believes her love rat on-screen husband could be set to play away, as he is always so driven by sex.
She told Soaplife magazine: "Their relationship has always been based on Tanya being sexy and attractive and keeping Max (Jake Wood) on his toes. Now she can't be those things because she hasn't got the physical ability.
"She fears Max will be the same old, same old. He's the love of her life but she lives in fear of him cheating.
"From the beginning, Tanya realised that once Max knew she had cancer he would mean to stay with her. But she suspected he would probably end up sleeping with one of the nurses treating her."
