Other revellers took video footage of Jessie’s encounter with the law, which was subsequently uploaded onto social media. The EastEnders actress can be heard using the ‘F’ word as two cops try to subdue and handcuff her.

“It was very shocking. I couldn’t believe it. She was in a right state”, commented one eyewitness to the event. “She was very angry. Everyone gasped when she swore and got involved in something like that. It was horrible to see”, they added.

“A 50-year-old woman was arrested early on Sunday morning in St Andrew’s Street, Bury St Edmunds, on suspicion of assaulting a police officer/drunk and disorderly conduct, and was released without charge after receiving a conditional caution”, a Suffolk Police spokesman told The Sun.

Jessie had been seen attending a Madness concert in nearby Thetford Forest in Brandon earlier in the day, posing happily for pictures with fans.
