EastEnders’ Jessie Wallace ‘expressed deep regret’ to BBC bosses after arrest

EastEnders star Jessie Wallace has “expressed her deep regret” after she was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and drunk and disorderly conduct, the BBC said.

The broadcaster has stated it issued the actress, who plays Kat Slater in the BBC soap opera, with a “clear warning that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable”.

Wallace, 50, was arrested early on Sunday morning in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk after the alleged incident and was released without charge after receiving a conditional caution.
