While no other details were revealed, the bosses were reportedly left with no choice but to discipline her. The actress was told to sort herself out before returning to work. 

Boyfriend, Dating

Jessica is currently single. She split from her boyfriend of almost two years, Paul Keepin, in late 2019. Paul was a divorced father to five.

The two first made headlines when they were spotted together in October of 2018 as they attended the Amy Winehouse Gala at London’s Dorchester Hotel together. 

Prior to dating Paul, she was dating musician Tim Arnold. The pair dated for four years before calling it quits in 2016. Tim said that he was tired of fame and made the following comment: 

People just want to know about the celebrities you know or have been with. I am tired of it.

Another unsuccessful romance of hers was with Vince Morse, whom she canceled her £300K wedding with on the very day of the ceremony. The reason for it was said to be her learning that Vince had been sexting an ex of his.

The soap actress had a daughter named Tallulah Lilac Morgan on 2nd November 2004.

The father of the daughter is Dave Morgan, a traffic cop whom she met in 2003 when he escorted her to court to face a drink-drive charge. 

They started dating in April of the same year but broke up after a year of having a daughter.

Following the split, she raised her daughter alone. Dave’s parents complained that they had never gotten to see their grandchild despite sending cards to her every year for her birthday and Christmas.
