Who is Jessica Plummer?

Actress Jessica, 28, lives with her four year old daughter Noa in their cosy and quirky London home.

And while most may know her for her role in EastEnders, Jessica actually cut her teeth in the entertainment industry as a singer for a band named Neon Jungle.

The four-piece girl band consisted of Shereen Cutkelvin, Amira McCarthy and Asami Zdrenka, and they had top ten chart positions for their singles and album. Go girls!

The band also performed alongside super star Taylor Swift at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

As well as EastEnders, Jessica has also starred in British science fantasy series Wizards vs Aliens, but perhaps most impressively she acted alongside Nicole Kidman and Matt Lucas in 2017 hit film How to Talk to Girls at Parties.

What else should you know?

Jessica is undeniably a successful lady, but it seems another successful lady has caught her eye!

Yes, while filming EastEnders spin off show Secrets from the Square, she said of the presenter Stacey Dooley: “Meeting Stacey was the highlight of filming Secrets from the Square, I’ve always had a bit of a girl crush on her!”

And the stunning star also once shaved her hair off, getting rid of her sensational mane back in 2015.

Posting a snap of her new look on social media at the time, the star told fans she’d done it as she was fed up of how damaged it had become after heat and dyeing over the years.

Who is Jessica Plummer dating?

It was recently reported that Jessica “quietly split” from her partner, known as Jaz.

In a video obtained by The Sun, the star was heard calling the father of her daughter “sneaky” and “selfish.”

Talking to the publication, a source said: “They haven't been together in a long time – but they still see each other and co-parent.

“Their daughter is the most important thing and they always put her first.”
