EastEnders star Jo Joyner has insisted that she doesn't find it too difficult to switch off from her emotional storyline.

The actress's character Tanya Jessop has been battling cervical cancer over the past few months after being diagnosed last summer.

Joyner, reflecting on the plotline, told the Daily Star: "Rather than it making me depressed after filming those difficult scenes, I tend to go home relieved that it's not my life.

"I go home and laugh even more hysterically than I would normally because of what's happening to Tanya.

"Saying that, my husband doesn't agree. He thinks I carry it all more than I think I do.

"He says I come back miserable, but once I've put the kids in the bath and had a laugh, then I feel good again."

EastEnders viewers will see Tanya's relationship face further problems in the coming days as her partner Max (Jake Wood) struggles with the lack of passion between them.
