Major Eastenders star visits the Lake District

The Westmorland Gazette: Jake Wood better known as Max Branning in Eastenders Jake Wood better known as Max Branning in Eastenders

EASTENDERS star 'Max Branning' was in the Lake District yesterday.

The actor, real name Jake Wood, took a cruise on Ullswater with a friend.

Staff report that like many other tourists, he boarded at Glenridding pier then got off at Howtown for the walk back.

But in an ending befitting a roll of the Eastenders' closing drums, there was no sandwich stop!

Staff report that poor Jake left his rucksack on the boat.

Rachel Bell, marketing and events manager for Ullswater Steamers, said: “He popped into the pier house because he had left his rucksack, and he said he was gutted because he was looking forward to his sausage roll!

"He was a really nice guy though, and he said he wasn’t bothered about the rain because he was dressed for it.”

Jake joined Eastenders in 2006 and has been most known for his womanising ways and for being a lucrative entrepreneur.

He has reportedly been spotted numerous times at the Steamer’s sister attraction, Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, in the past.

Ullswater steamers should learn a bit of discretion. What about just letting this chap enjoy his holiday without being pestered.

Many famous people visit the Lakes as they are left relatively in peace - not anymore I see.

Based in a place called London, it's a BBC television programme on which people coverse in a mixture of sinister whispers or, more often than not, by loud, agressive shouting.

Despite its best efforts to somehow depict real East End life, it offers viewers no hope of plots lines that are humourous, joyful or realistic.

Indeed, nothing good ever happens to anyone on the show and when ratings suffer they simply kill one of the cast off, either by murder or through a series of long, drawn-out and tragic circumstances.

If it was a real place, Albert Square, the fictional destination in which its set would be derserted; with all of the inhabitants having moved away to less depressing and dangerous locations.

Should you ever have the misfortune to stumble across this excuse for entertainment, I recommend you switch off immediately and quickly paint something close at hand. You can then spend the next hour enjoying watching it dry.
