Jessie Wallace's ex boyfriend has claimed the EastEnders actress' drinking ruined their relationship in a new interview.
After photos emerged of the 46-year-old actress apparently worse for wear in the street last month, her former beau Chris Osborn told The Sun that she would pass out at home after 'messy' drinking sessions, was paranoid and split from him after three months when he asked her to pay back £10,000.
The 49-year-old builder, who dated Jessie for three months in 2006, alleged the brunette beauty would drink multiple bottles of expensive Sancerre wine, drunkenly ripped £50,000 paintings off a wall and jumped in a holiday swimming pool with her clothes on.

He also claimed that she accused of him installing secret cameras in their hotel room and lost an acting script.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Jessie for comment.
An EastEnders representative declined to comment when approached by MailOnline.
He said: 'Jessie used to get as ped as a pudding and in the end that was the thing that got in the way of us. Our relationship was 100mph.'
Chris said that he had periodically lent her sums of cash, adding up to £10,000 but when he asked for the money back, the star 'went into full Kat Slater mode' and ended the relationship.

He added that he did later get the money back.
Chris admitted when the pair had first met through mutual friends at a party, he was starstruck and he already knew she was a bit of a livewire who loved 'screaming and shouting'.
Adding that the pair hit it off straight away, their first date soon followed with Chris claiming Jessie was still drunk from the previous night when he picked her up.
He said the pair drank two bottles of white wine and champagne, with Chris staying over.
Chris said: 'She liked a nice glass of Sancerre. She'd buy £30 bottles and get obliterated at home rather than go out — probably because she knew she'd be pictured looking a mess.'

The pair's romance went from strength to strength, seeing each other three times a week, before travelling to Majorca after dating for a month.
Chris said Jessie loved drinking around the pool and jumped into the water when they returned from a coach trip around 2am.
He also claimed it was on this trip Jessie, who had recently left EastEnders for the first time, accused him of bugging their room with cameras, and later lost a script for a TV show .
Chris claimed when they returned home, it became obvious her drinking was putting a barrier between them, and said she would routinely pass out on the sofa and on the floor.
In September he booked a suite at The Rookery in London, which was Jessie's favourite hotel, and said the night was 'mad' with the pair consuming numerous bottles of wine.
'There were £50,000 paintings on the wall and she was taking them off and running around drunk with them above her head. I was like, 'Don't touch them!' Even the staff had begged us not to.'
Despite the claims, Chris praised Jessie as a mother and said she never let drinking get in the way of that.
Jessie returned to Albert Square last month, three years after last quitting the soap.
