EastEnders Jack and Chelseas dating history explained – secret pregnancy to break-up – Mirror Online
Jack Branning and Denise Fox might be an item now, but once upon a time the copper used to date her daughter Chelsea.
Chelsea, now played by Zaraah Abrahams, recently returned to Albert Square after appearing to reunite with killer dad Lucas.
However, she hasn’t had much interaction with Jack – though some fans might have noticed that the pair have seemed awkward around one another.
Years ago, Jack began a relationship with Chelsea, then played by Tiana Benjamin, after helping her when she was on an awkward blind date.
But things quickly became difficult for the couple when Jack was shot in nightclub R&R during niece Lauren’s birthday.
After he was rushed to hospital, Jack was put into a medically induced coma before undergoing a serious operation.
Afterwards, Jack was brought out of the coma and discovered that he was paralysed down the left side of his body.
Realising his feelings for on-off lover Ronnie, Jack decided to break up with Chelsea. However, she later suspected that she could be pregnant with his child and wanted to keep the baby.
But when Chelsea took another test, she realised that she wasn’t pregnant.
And things weren’t always amicable between Jack and Denise either and were put on a blind date together back in 2012 – that ended with Denise throwing water over him…
