Things are finally hotting up for Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) in the ‘love department’ in scenes set to air next week.
His new love interest is Linzi Bragg, played by Amy-Leigh Hickman who some viewers may recognise as Carmen from ‘Tracy Beaker Returns’ and its spin-off ‘The Dumping Ground’.
After a rough start in the cafe when Linzi turns down Jay’s request for a date, they do swap phone numbers and she eventually does agree to go out with him. As it is a bit late to book a restaurant, the lucky mechanic decides to dress up The Arches and woo her with his ingenuity and romantic side. But will his efforts be rewarded?
EastEnders’ executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins promised late last year that Jay would have a huge story line in 2016 and that it would be Borthwick’s biggest ever in the programme – could Linzi be part of this storyline?
