Earlier in October 2023, EastEnders star Jamie Borthwick confirmed his exit from the BBC soap and dismayed his fans. In a now-removed social media post, he shared a throwback snap of himself as Jay and paid tribute to his character. Playing Jay Brown for the first time in 2006 is what made the English actor rise to prominence. The role apparently also earned him a British Soap Award for “Best Dramatic Performance from a Young Actor or Actress” in 2008.
In the rest of the writing, we shall discuss more about Jamie, even his dating life/marital status.
Jamie Borthwick Partner: Is He Married Or Single?
Until at least December 2019, Jamie Borthwick had not been married. soaphub.com among others confirmed him to be unmarried and also not having any children at that point. When he is not acting, they said, he is very interested in sports and that he is a massive supporter of West Ham United, but did not give away anything as to if he is married or single.
Fast forward to the time of this writing, November 2023, Jamie shared his support for his former co-star Danielle Harold and in turn rendered rumors about their plausible romance. Jamie and Danielle played the loved-up couple Jay and Lola on the BBC soap before Danielle’s character sadly died after having a brain tumor. This is, however, not the first time the pair has sparked these types of speculations. A month ago, Danielle had shared a glimpse of their “date night” and the same had happened.
Also, much earlier, in February 2023, Danielle posted a loved-up mirror selfie of them together from the Broadcast Awards and in the caption of it wrote “My love.”
Speaking of if these two are really together, Danielle during her October 2023 interview with Fabulous Magazine addressed the rumours that she is in a relationship with Jamie. “I always say Jamie is the husband I never wanted or asked for, but nonetheless got”, she said and right away also added “Seriously though, there’s no one like that at the moment. But I’ve been so busy, it’s probably for the best.” At last, she confirmed that she has got no time for dating.
The thing is, Jamie and Danielle spent a lot of time together during the latter’s final few months on EastEnders and because of their on-screen chemistry of their characters as well as their closeness off the screen, rumors began to circulate about their alleged romantic relationship.
