EastEnders fans whooped with glee when Walford hunk Jack Branning showed off his rather fine physique this week.
Well, they say if you’ve got it, flaunt it. And Jack’s definitely got it…
No wonder he’s so popular with the ladies in Albert Square!
On Thursday night (13 September), BBC viewers were shocked when Jack – played by Scott Maslen – got passionate with his sister-in-law Rainie.
In surprising scenes, Jack and Rainie – both feeling dejected by Mel and Max respectively – found solace in each other’s arms.
The pair shared a steamy kiss, before seemingly taking things further…
While Rainie is married to Max, viewers know it’s a sham marriage – but we still don’t think Max would be best pleased!
Fans rushed to social media to express their shock, with one saying: “I’m sorry did that just happen – Jack and Rainie?! I’ll bet Max gets feelings right when it’s too late.”
Another simply said: “Oooh Jack & Rainie, naughty naughty.”

Some fans LOVED the pairing, calling the couple ‘Rack’ – we’re not sure the nickname quite works, though…
But the star of the show wasn’t THAT kiss.
In fact, it wasn’t Jack’s lips that had fans talking – it was his pecs and six-pack during scenes in which he walked around with his top off AND with nothing but a towel on.
One viewer simply called the scenes “a nice surprise”, while another joked that Jack was “showing off”.

One very contented viewer tweeted: “Wooooah jack branning shirtless, thoses abs , starting a petition to have a shirtless jack in every episode.”
Where do we sign?
Actor Scott makes no secret of his love of fitness in real life but, sorry ladies and gents, he tends to keep fit with his beautiful wife Estelle.
Will Rainie get to see more of Jack’s toned torso as they continue an affair?
Or will she carry on with her pursuit of Max…?
Stick or twist, which should she do?
