Walford's Jo Joyner reveals burial script shock
Tonight's episode of EastEnders sees Tanya Branning finally wreak revenge on her promiscuous husband Max when she exposes him to his worst childhood nightmare by burying him alive.

The Christmas revelation saw Max (Jake Wood) and Stacey's (Lacey Turner) affair exposed to the Branning/Slater gathering and since then, Max's wife Tanya (Jo Joyner) has been hell-bent on revenge.

Speaking of when she first heard about the burial idea, the actress recounted: "I actually was really upset! I heard about the theory and I thought 'how are you going to get me there? She's not a killer!'

"I did always say to Diederick [Santer] when this happened that as far as I was concerned, the only way she can kill Max is when she finds out on Christmas Eve in a blind fit of rage – that's the only time when she could be a murderer."

She added: "I think you'll be pleased with the outcome. Put it this way, I was upset about the Friday episode but then when I saw Monday's I thought 'Ahhhh, OK…'"

The burial scenes air tonight on BBC One at 8pm. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
