It is reported that EastEnders fans are set to see an affair this summer that will cause ructions in Albert Square.

Metro.co.uk, which first reported the story, says viewers of the soap will see Ruby Allen (played by Louisa Lytton) and Max Branning (played by Jake Wood) get together as part of a new storyline.

It's reported that passions rise after Max offers to help Ruby with her business plan. 

A source told Metro: "Ruby and Max are an electric match and the chemistry between them is undeniable, but it's safe to say they'll have some obstacles coming their way.

"Ruby is completely oblivious about Max's history with her best mate Stacey (played by Lacey Turner), and it's only a matter of time before she finds out. But just what will Stacey make of the pairing?"

EastEnders airs on RTÉ One and BBC One on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
