Wallace was then taken away in handcuffs and packed in a police van.

She is believed to have initially tried to downplay the incident – the last to plague her career – and EastEnders the bosses were informed only when The Sun broke the news.

Concerned executives held a series of meetings in which they swore that they would “get to the bottom of things.”

A BBC spokesman has since said: “Senior bosses have spoken to Jessie Wallace about the incident and issued a clear warning that such behavior is unacceptable and Jessie has expressed her deep regret.”

One observer said of her breakdown under the pressure of alcohol in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk: “It was really shocking behavior.

“She was out of control. It was worse than anything Kat Slater had done.”

Wallace was at a Madness gig on Saturday at Thetford Forest, Suffolk, posing with fans for the recordings.

She later went to Flex in Bury St Edmunds, a nightclub known for two-for-one offers for Hooch, VKs and cocktail fishbowls.

But around 2 a.m. a man believed to be Wallace’s new mysterious lover was seen arguing with police officers outside.

Wallace then embarked on an infamous tirade before being handcuffed for public disorder.

As the astonished revelers watched her, she persuaded the policeman to let her go – and hell broke loose.

The witness said: “The police were trying to drive people away.

“She told them to fuck off. She was angry and started shouting. One police officer said: “If you swear again, we will arrest you.” She said, ‘fuck off the fat bitch’.

“She was very drunk. The officer then handcuffed her and told her that she had been arrested for a breach of public order under section five. She looked upset and kept apologizing.”

They added: “She begged them to let her go. One police officer said that if they let her go, she had to get in a taxi and go home. As soon as they took off their handcuffs, she said ‘fuck you’. That was mean behavior.

“They told her that they had given her a warning, so they started handcuffing her and arresting her again. One tried to dress them and she knelt in the whores. He fell to his knees.

“He was in so much pain, poor thing. He screamed. Other officers jumped in. She was put in a van and a policewoman searched her. “

Wallace was later released from custody after accepting a suspended sentence for assaulting a police officer and drunken and irregular behavior.

The source said: “She obviously hoped that this would not go public and did not want the production team to know about it, which could explain why she accepted probation so quickly and avoided a public court hearing.

“Initially, she downplayed the claims, but pictures and videos, as well as observers, tell a much more serious story and one that the BBC is very worried about. They are considering all options.”

Wallace was shown barefoot and hazy-eyed at this month’s British Soap Awards.

In 2020, her character Kat was written off the script for two months so that the actress could “fix up” while she was serving her suspension due to alleged drunkenness on the set. In 2018, she was kicked out of the British Soap Awards before she started because she was “too drunk”.

Suffolk police said: “A 50-year-old woman was arrested early Sunday morning in St Andrew’s Street, Bury St Edmunds, on suspicion of assaulting a police officer / drunk and violently and was released without charge after receiving a suspended sentence. ”

He turned to the BBC for comment.

PROCEDURE FOR INITIATING CLOSING LOANS

By Simon Boyle, executive editor of Showbiz

METHOD Acting may be praised in Hollywood, but it’s hard to justify it outside of a nightclub in a shopping town.

And this new series in Jessie Wallace’s colorful history seems like it could be the last curtain for her soap opera career.

Or at least it should. Jessie may be a colorful character, as well as a talented actress, but her personal life now makes the cheeky Kat Slater of EastEnders look healthy – and risks serious damage to the brand in the prime time of the series.

She has been suspended several times in her 22-year association with Albert Square, with drinking and drug problems, arrests and public embarrassment on her list.

Jessie may be fighting demons, but attacking cops and wasting their overloaded resources leaves little room for forgiveness. Observers make it clear that this poor copper has made every effort to avoid escalating this situation before throwing a salvo of abuse and kneeling well on purpose.

There should be no room for a bully in the main BBC1 drama. It’s not that the bosses of Enders don’t have enough problems, with the rating in free fall, the departure of veterans and the pressure on budgets.

Executive workers need top professionals who perform enchanting performances, not drunken prima donnas who imitate soap outside provincial nightclubs.

This is one story that has clearly started its course.
