EastEnders' Jessie Wallace begs fans for help after cat Oscar goes missing for 'days'

EASTENDERS star Jessie Wallace has begged fans to help find find her cat Oscar after it went missing "for days".

The actress, who is best known for playing Kat Slater in the BBC soap, took to her Instagram grid to ask viewers to keep an eye out.

Alongside a sweet snap of the tabby cat yawning while lying on a plush pink rug, she told fans Oscar went missing in the "N10 area" of north London.

Jessie, 49, wrote to her following: "MISSING! This is Oscar, he is slightly bigger than this now and hasn't been home for a few days."

"If anyone sees him in this area please let me know, thank you," she concluded the post, which fans flooded with their best wishes.

"I do hope Oscar is home really soon," one heartbroken follower responded, as another chimed in: "Fingers crossed he will be home soon."

It hasn't been an easy year for soap star Jessie, who finally dissolved her company after owing thousands to the taxman.

The Kat Slater star placed her company Thatcher Promotions Limited into voluntary liquidation in 2015.

Documents with Companies House show that HMRC wanted £69,614 in corporation tax and VAT and the star ended up paying only £25,964.

Jessie has been one of the biggest stars in soapland for years, joining the drama for her first stint as Alfie Moon's girlfriend between 2000 and 2005.

She has hit headlines both for her work on and off screen – more recently for being suspended for seven months.

Jessie reprised her role as Kat in September of last year after she was booted off the soap after allegedly boozing on set in January.

A source told The Sun it appeared that troubled Jessie, who was told to "sort herself out" by bosses, seemed drunk on set.

Her character was written out of any upcoming plots before lockdown temporarily halted filming early last year.

It came just weeks after The Sun exclusively revealed Jessie had split with greengrocer boyfriend Paul Keepin after two years.

Since returning she has been part of a number of gripping storylines, including a robbery, a romance with Phil Mitchell and the death of her ex boyfriend Kush.
