'EastEnders' Jacqueline Jossa wouldn't back Lauren, Tyler romance

By
EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa has admitted that she would be against a romance storyline for Lauren Branning and Tyler Moon.

Tony Discipline, who plays Tyler, is Jossa's boyfriend in real life but she believes love-making scenes would be "awkward" between the pair of them.

When asked by Metro about the possibility of Lauren and Tyler falling for each other, she answered: "I don't think Tyler would go for Lauren, he's already had her and he wanted Whitney. Tony and I talk about loads of different storylines, some of them are ridiculous.

"I'd like them to be friends more than lovers because I think it's more awkward kissing your boyfriend on set! It's just a bit strange."

The actress also conceded that she has struggled with filming Lauren's romantic storyline with cousin Joey.

"Trying to make it not disgusting and not put people off was also a challenge," she said. "It is a tough storyline.

"Lots of people say incest is actually legal so it was trying to get that across. Obviously people are going to have their own views and you're not going to change everyone's minds."

Meanwhile, Jossa heaped praise on her on-screen boyfriend and co-star David Witts who won the soap 'Newcomer' gong at Wednesday's National Television Awards.

"Oh my god, I couldn't be any happier," she gushed. "I wanted him to win more than he did! His speech was so lovely and he's such a nice guy and he deserves it. He so did not see that coming at all and the competition was really high."
