Jessie Wallace was seen helping police who were getting to the bottom of a disturbance in a street near her home.

The 49 year old – who plays Kat Slater on hit BBC soap EastEnders – was photographed speaking with officers in Haringey, North London.

The actress took to the street in slippers and was soon joined by her daughter Tallulah Lilac, 16.

She wore a warm black fleece and joggers as she had a discussion with officers.

Jessie made no mention of the incident when she took her dog for a walk later that evening, instead sharing a picture of her German Shepherd Albert "admiring the view".

The Met Police confirmed to The Mirror that they responded to a call following reports of a disturbance in the street.

The force say a 17 year old male was arrested on suspicion of common assault and criminal damage.

He has been bailed until late January 2021, they said.

A spokeswoman said police were called to the address in Haringey, London, at 2pm on Monday last week.

They attended "following reports of a disturbance in the street".

The Met Police statement added: "Officers attended and arrested a 17-year-old male on suspicion of common assault and criminal damage. He has been bailed until late January 2021."

Jessie returned to the set of EastEnders in August after being suspended by the BBC earlier in the year.

Her year was to take another bad turn towards the end of 2020.

Last month Jessie was left dealing with the fall-out after her company was wound up.

Owing the taxman £40,000, she placed Thatcher Promotions Limited in voluntary liquidation in 2015.

It owed almost £70,000 in unpaid corporation tax and VAT, which liquidators have reportedly been trying to recoup ever since.

The liquidator’s report revealed: “Instalments were agreed to repay the loan but unfortunately they were not regular and continued chasing was required.

“Therefore, to secure the debt, I instructed solicitors to place a charge upon her property.”
