Kierston Wareing is "embarrassed" for her 'EastEnders' character Kirsty Branning as she is set to announce a fake pregnancy in a bid to keep a hold of her husband Max
Kierston Wareing is "embarrassed" by her 'EastEnders' character Kirsty Branning's fake pregnancy.
The outspoken blonde is to announce she is with child in a bid to keep hold of husband Max Branning (Jake Wood), who recently left other wife Tanya Cross (Jo Joyner) to focus on his on/off spouse, but Kirsty soon begins to worry about the reaction from her neighbours if her lie doesn't become true in time.
And while Kierston is enjoying the storyline, she feels uncomfortable watching her character's behaviour.
Kierston, 35, explained to Inside Soap magazine: "Kirsty has told this huge lie to keep him, and even I don't know when the truth is going to come out. I'm excited to see what's going to happen.
"Kirsty keeps pouncing on Max, because she thinks the more she jumps on him, the quicker a real pregnancy is going to happen! But it's not working, and time is running out.
"I feel really embarrassed for her - imagine how the rest of the Square will react when it comes out that she lied? Mind you, Kirsty's got so much front, she might not care!"
Despite her manipulative plan, Kierston doesn't think her relationship with Max will last and is still confused as to why her alter-ego trusts the Albert Square bad boy.
She added: "I don't think it's going to last. But what I am hoping comes out of it is that, if Max does cheat on her with anyone else, Kirsty won't turn into a drip because of it.
"I think she should do the dirty on him as well in that case! I know that Kirsty doesn't trust Max - would anyone? I'm not being funny, but just look at his track record."
However, her lie seems to pay off when Max decides to get a flat for him and his wife to have their own space instead of living in the B&B.
Kirsty's big announcement can be seen in scenes aired tomorrow night (19.03.13) on BBC One at 8pm.
