‘EastEnders' Spoiler: Denise Van Outen's Character Romances Max Branning (PICS)

Denise van Outen’s ‘EastEnders’ character may only be staying in Albert Square for few weeks, but that isn’t going to stop her from causing trouble.

After arriving with the hope of locating Phil Mitchell, Karin Smart instead meets Max Branning and, well, to say they get on well is an understatement.

Oh, Karin...

Just moments after meeting and agreeing a business deal, Max and Karin turn their attentions to pleasure, and it’s not long before they share a passionate kiss.

But is Karin hiding something? This is Walford, and it seems she could have a secret.

Denise has already revealed that she has a history with Phil, and we reckon she’ll be causing even more trouble over the coming weeks.

How does Max do it?

“The character is really fun and she is a bit naughty - surprise surprise,” the actress admitted last week. “I thought she is going to go into The Square and stir things up a little bit.”

There’s been plenty of drama keeping viewers entertained in recent weeks, and the reappearance of Dean Wicks answered a number of key questions (well, really, it just confirmed that Mick isn’t a murderer, but we'll take that).

Denise isn’t the only famous face temporarily taking up residency in the Square, and later this year, the punters in the Queen Vic will be joined by Bonnie Langford.

Watch ‘EastEnders’ tonight (Thursday 9 April) to see the events unfold.
