EastEnders' Jessie Wallace Splits From Boyfriend Tim Arnold After He Grew 'Tired' Of Fame

EastEnders’ star Jessie Wallace has split from boyfriend Tim Arnold, after he grew “tired” of fame.


The aspiring singer has confirmed that he and the Kat Moon actress actually parted ways some time ago, after they first began dating in 2012.

Speaking to The Mirror, Tim says: “People just want to know about the celebrities you know or have been with. I am tired of it.”

When asked how long it had been since they’d been together, he added: “Oh, not for a long time.”

Tim’s sudden dislike of fame comes as a surprise, given that a year ago, he was trying his luck on ‘The Voice’.

After making it through his main audition and impressing coaches Rita Ora, Ricky Wilson, Will.i.am and Tom Jones, he crashed out of the competition during the battle round.

Jessie and Tim began dating after meeting at the British Soap Awards in 2012, where they were introduced by her ‘EastEnders’ co-star June Brown, who is Tim’s godmother.

Jessie has had her fair share of relationship drama over the years, as in 2011, she dramatically called off her wedding to Vince Morse when she discovered he was sending explicit messages to an ex-girlfriend.

She is also mother to seven-year-old daughter, Tallulah, from her previous relationship with policeman Dave Morgan.

The star is currently treading the boards in a production of ‘The Perfect Murder’, alongside her ‘EastEnders’ screen husband Shane Richie.

The pair are also set to star in their own ‘EastEnders’ spin-off show later this year, as Kat and Alfie head to Ireland in search of her long-lost son.
