And Joe shared an image that answered the question.

Showing a mobile coffee shop called Swash & Jones on his Instagram stories, Joe tagged Shana in the post.

What was Shana in and who did she play?

Fans last saw Shana onscreen when she supported her older brother when he appeared on Dancing On Ice in 2020.

However, before that, Shana appeared in EastEnders the same time as Joe.

She played teen Demi Miller in the soap from 2004 to 2006.

Arriving on the scene pregnant, her waters broke in a school playground and she had to enlist Pauline Fowler to help her give birth.

Unfortunately for Demi, her story ended in heartbreak – she had to give her daughter up and then later became a heroin addict.

After reuniting with daughter Aleesha, but losing boyfriend Leo to the drug, she decides to make a clean start away from Albert Square.
