EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa has likened husband Dan Osborne to her EastEnders co-star Adam Woodyatt – and it’s all down to their shared love of Lego.


Speaking in the new edition of Radio Times.com, Jossa – who is set to exit the BBC1 soap this festive season – revealed all about her own Christmas plans:

“My husband Daniel has actually told me what he wants this year. It’s Lego, which is quite shameful, isn’t it? Either the Disney Castle or Big Ben.

“Did you know that Adam Woodyatt [who plays Ian Beale] is also into Lego? I always say that I’m married to a young Adam Woodyatt – they’re very similar.”

But according to the actress, there won’t be time for Lego building for the Brannings later this month. Lauren is currently at loggerheads with disgraced dad Max and the situation looks set to get a whole lot worse before 2017 is through:

On the topic of EastEnders’s Christmas Day episode, Jossa said: “It doesn’t disappoint. In fact, it’s catastrophic, the worst one yet. We don’t even get to sit down for dinner this year. The episodes are wicked.”
