Is it the end for mel and Jack?
and Jack gives her an ultimatum! Mel Makes a Mistake
STORY SO FAR
Jack Branning’s romance with Mel Owen took a while to get off the ground. But they’re together now and things are going great for the couple.
At least, they were…
Feeling romantic, Mel decides to host a special lunch for her fella. But she’s taken aback when Jack turns up with his daughter, Amy, in tow. When Amy catches Mel alone, the little girl quizzes her about what’s going on between her and Jack (she is SO like her mum, Roxy Mitchell!).
Thrown off by all the questions, a spooked Mel calls a halt to the lunch early.
Next day, Mel tries to make amends with Jack, but she ends up digging herself into an even deeper hole. When she tries to apologise again, Jack makes it clear if she wants to be with him then she has to realise his kids come first.
As it looks like this perfect romance has fallen apart, Mel posts a few of Jack’s belongings back through the letterbox when she’s caught by Rainie Branning. Unlikely love doctor Mrs Branning decides to give Jack some words of advice – and, surprisingly, she speaks a lot of sense.
With Rainie’s words ringing in his ears, Jack tries to make it up to Mel – but this time it’s her who’s having none of it. Is it all over for ‘Jel’ (or ‘Mack’)?
We know Mel’s ex-hubby, Ray Kelly, will be showing his face in Albert Square soon.
Could this spot of trouble with Jack be the only excuse he needs to swoop in and claim his ex? And which lucky fella – if any – will Mel want to be with this time?
Can Mel and Jack kiss and make up over a drink – or is the glass half empty for the couple?
