EastEnders star Jessie Wallace has been suspended from the BBC soap following an alleged "incident" that took place during filming, according to reports.
The actress, who plays Kat Slater in the long-running soap, will be "temporarily written out" of upcoming plots.
A source told The Sun: "Jessie was clearly tipsy and got very verbal. She made an a*** out of herself - it's was quite sad to see.
"She's been given two months to sort herself out and bosses hope she'll return in a better frame of mind."
Wallace was previously suspended from the soap in the mid-2000s because of her alcohol consumption.
"Scriptwriters are currently coming up with a storyline to explain Kat's temporary exit from Walford," another source told The Mirror.
A spokesperson for the BBC said: "We don't comment on artist's contracts."
