EastEnders spoilers: Max Branning gets close to DC Emma Summerhayes – first look pictures

Sparks will fly in the coming weeks but what impact will this have on the Lucy Beale murder case?

Max Branning (Jake Wood) is at it again – this time with DC Emma Summerhayes (Anna Acton), the family liaison officer investigating the murder of Lucy Beale.


In scenes to be shown on Thursday 12 June, a heart to heart will result in sparks flying between Max and Summerhayes. But what impact will Max’s advances have on the police case?

Speaking about the upcoming storyline, an insider said to RadioTimes.com: “Will Anna Acton be the woman who can tame the untameable?”

A source recently added to the Sun: “It’s well known Max can’t keep it in his pants but bedding a copper who is investigating his ex-lover’s murder is a bit low even for him.

“It’ll be a very steamy affair but his motives are questionable.”


All of which begs the question: has Max really fallen for Summerhayes or is he merely making sure that he doesn’t come under further suspicion of murder?
