It comes after Jake, who also shares 11-year-old son Buster with wife Alison, celebrated his 18-year wedding anniversary, and posted a touching tribute to his other half. 

Alongside a picture of them on their wedding day 18 years ago, he wrote: "Thank you Ali for being the incredible you."

Former Strictly Come Dancing star Jake joined EastEnders in 2006. His character arrived to confront his father Jim, who he hadn't seen for many years.

Max was soon reunited with son Bradley, who he hadn't seen since he was little. Shortly after, Max moved to Albert Square with his wife Tanya and daughters Lauren and Abi.

Over the years Max has faced plenty of heartache. His relationship with wife Tanya went dramatically downhill after it was revealed he had an affair with Stacey, Bradley's wife. Bradley died after falling off the roof of The Vic in 2010.

On Christmas Day in 2018, Lauren and pregnant Abi also fell from the roof of The Vic trying to get their dad down.

Lauren survived the fall, however Abi remained unconscious. Abi's baby survived the fall and she delivered a premature baby, still unconscious.

Shortly after her daughter's birth, Abi was declared brain stem dead and her family were told she would not regain consciousness.

Abi's life support machine was eventually turned off and after her funeral, her sister Lauren moved away.

Max now has custody of Abi's daughter, who was named after her, along with Tanya's sister Rainie.
