EastEnders‘ Stefan Booth tells Soaplife that Greg’s so loved-up with Tanya he won’t expect Max to stop the wedding…
A genuinely nice guy with no skeletons in his closet, vowing undying love to a mother-of-three and being totally faithful is a rarity in soap. But actor Stefan says his character Greg is that man and he proves he means business to Tanya by setting a date for their wedding. And Greg’s not just looking at venues for the ceremony, he reckons Roxy’s house would be the perfect place for them to settle… Even though it’s within spitting distance of Max. “Greg sees no reason why he and Max can’t live side by side in peace,” says Stefan. But Tanya has serious reservations about living so close to Max.
Doesn’t Greg realise Tanya’s worried?
“Greg assures her it will be fine. They’re engaged and it’s been on the cards for a while so he thinks they should make it official.”
But we get the feeling Tanya isn’t quite ready to move on…
“Max let Tanya down badly. But she can utterly rely on Greg. He absolutely adores Tanya and she knows that.”
Yes, but that’s all new for Tanya…
“She hasn’t had that sort of doting affection from Max. No matter what happens, Greg will always be there for her. I think that’s what she’s after – someone who’s going to be true and genuine.”
Really? Isn’t Max an itch Tanya can’t stop scratching…?
“I know there’s a danger Tanya could end up back with Max again, but I’d like to think their future could sustain a healthy long-term relationship.”
