Joyner joins 'EastEnders'
Jo Joyner is the latest actress to join the cast of EastEnders

The actress has been cast for the role of Tania Branning, wife of other new arrival Max Branning (Jake Wood). Tania is the newest Branning clan member since the arrival of Jim's grandson, Bradley (from Max's previous marriage), earlier this year.

Jo's character Tania is a determined young mum who loves her family and her occasionally wayward husband. She is smart and outgoing but does not always set out to be the centre of attention. She is also sensible enough to make sure she has got her own money and independence in case she ever has to leave Max again. Although Bradley is not her son, she and Max share two daughters together, Lauren and Abi, who have yet to be cast.

Of her new role, Jo said: "I'm really excited to be joining EastEnders and am looking forward to working with some great people including Jake Wood. The thought of joining the show feels really surreal and I can't wait to arrive in Albert Square!"

Tania Branning will arrive in the square in May. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
