IS it the ‘Ender the road for Max and Tanya?

It certainly seems so, as Tewin-based actor Jake Wood, who plays Eastenders badboy Max Branning, has tweeted a picture after filming his final scene with on-screen ex-wife Tanya Cross, played by Jo Joyner.

The 35-year-old is leaving the soap indefinitely after seven years, in pursuit of other roles and to spend time with her family.

Today (Wednesday) co-star Jake Wood tweeted: “So here’s me and Jo after filming our last scene together this morning… gonna miss you @dollyjoyner x.”
