EastEnders star Jessie Wallace 'shaken' after attack in pub
Jessie Wallace was left "shaken" after two men reportedly threw glasses at her in a pub.
The EastEnders star was in the Partridge pub in south-east London with Snow White co-star, Jason Sutton, when two men started throwing glasses at her after she refused to pose for a photograph.
Police were called to the scene to break up the fight.
Journalist Lesley Ashmall, who witnessed the fight, said that Wallace did not suffer any injuries as a result of the attack.
She told Press Association:
"It was a nice festive atmosphere but these two blokes stood up and started shouting and throwing glasses.
“She told me they had been asking her for a photo and she said no because they were too drunk.
“They broke about six glasses, then they lamped the guy who is playing Nurse Nancy in the panto.”
Ashmall then said that the two men left the bar.

In a statement Wallace's manager, Phil Dale, said:
“Although very shaken by the intrusion into her private time with her family and friends, Jessie is looking forward to being back on stage today.”
The actress, who is best known for playing Kat Slater in the popular soap, is currently starring as the wicked queen in Bromley’s Churchill Theatre's Snow White panto.
