JESSICA Plummer is swapping the streets of Walford for the Welsh wilderness as she prepares for this year's I'm A Celebrity.

The EastEnders star played Chantelle Atkins, who was killed off in September after a harrowing domestic abuse storyline.

Who is Jessica Plummer?

Jessica Plummer was born in London on September 16, 1992.

The casting was announced in February 2019.

Jessica was previously in a British girl group called Neon Jungle. Their debut single Trouble entered the British charts at No. 12 back in August 2013.

The group supported Jessie J on tour in October of that year and also performed alongside Taylor Swift at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The group split in July 2015.

Jessica has one daughter called Noa. 

Who did Jessica Plummer play in Eastenders?

Jessica Plummer played Chantelle Taylor in Eastenders, who was the daughter of Mitch Baker and Karen Taylor.

She was Keegan Baker’s full sister and half sister to Karen’s other kids, Bernadette, Keanu, Chatham and Riley.

Fans were heartbroken when the long-suffering character was killed by her abusive husband Gray Atkins.

He pushed her onto an upturned knife in the dishwasher – and watched as she died.

EastEnders viewers had been left horrified by Gray Atkins’ vicious attacks on his wife over the years.

Who is Jessica Plummer dating?

It's not known if they are still dating, but Jessica shares a child with her "childhood sweetheart" 'Jaz.'

Back in June 2016 she announced she was pregnant with her first child, daughter Noa Lily, writing:

"THANK YOU. Honestly means the world. Jaz and I are over the moon,” she wrote to her 35,100 fans.

“Couldn't be happier to be starting a family with my childhood sweetheart.”

However, in September 2020, the actress was spotted in a screaming row with the father of her daughter and sources told The Sun that the pair are no longer together.

Sources told us: "They haven’t been together in a long time – but they still see each other and co-parent.

"Their daughter is the most important thing and they always put her first".

The pair do not live together anymore with Jessica confirming to her Instagram followers during a Q&A in September that just her and Noa share a London pad.
