From a playboy in Eldorado to scorned lover in Eastenders
When Sharon Rickman made her return to Albert Square, she was a woman on the edge after fleeing from her fiancé, but what sort of man could strike fear into the daughter of Dennis Watts? When the shadowy figure of John was revealed, Sharon’s anguish was understandable: here was a man whose idea of revenge for being left at the altar was to kidnap a defenceless child – looks like Shazza definitely had a lucky escape. This isn’t the first time actor Jesse has portrayed a bad boy. In the ill-fated 1990s soap Eldorado he played Marcus Tandy, whose sharp suits and flash apartment were funded by his dodgy wheeling and dealing on the Costa Del Crime.
