EastEnders: Tanya Set For Happier Times On The Square

Jo Joyner has revealed she's enjoyed filming some "happy scenes" at last on EastEnders.

The soap star's character Tanya Jessop has experienced her fair share of misery on the show, but this month got the good news that she's clear of cervical cancer for now.

"I'm doing some happy scenes - about three - it's been nice," the actress joked.

But Jo warned that things were unlikely to run smoothly for long for mum-of-three Tanya and her ex-husband Max.

"Maybe they'll get on for a bit and have a nice time. But that wouldn't be very dramatic or interesting," she said.

"Walford's quite a miserable place, but that's part of the fun. It wouldn't be dramatic would it, watching us all win bingo!"
