EastEnders' Max Branning facing axe from Tanya?
EastEnders' Max and Tanya Branning's big day is put in doubt when his huge mystery secret is revealed over the Christmas period
EastEnders' Max Branning could be facing the axe from Tanya Branning over the festive period.
The crafty car salesman - who is portrayed by Jake Wood - has been harbouring a huge mystery secret from his fiancée (Jo Joyner) and when the details are revealed moments before the couple are about to tie the knot over Christmas, it sends their big day into doubt.
A show insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Tanya will get into her wedding dress but whether she makes it down the aisle is another matter altogether."
Jake admits it will be a "huge" revelation when Max's mysterious secret is divulged, and some of the cast have only just found out what he has been up to.
He told the Radio Times magazine: "For most of the year, only a handful of us have known about Max's secret. We have kept it quiet.
"When we came to film Christmas, the rest of the cast became privy to the news and jaws have been hitting the floor. If we're getting that reaction within the cast, it's going to be huge when it's revealed to the viewers."
Max and Tanya's wedding was originally due to take place on Christmas Eve (24.12.12) but it is put back until Christmas Day (25.12.12), and Jake cannot wait to watch the action unfold.
He added: "The wedding is postponed until Christmas Day. And that's when the drama will unfold. I will be sitting down with the rest of the country and watching on the edge of my seat."
