Jess’s raunchy new series has been likened to Love Island set in the 1300s.

Little is known about her character called Filomena other than she is “a spoiled oddball with a chip on her shoulder” but a first-look trailer has seen the star in action for the very first time.

A synpsysi for the brand new series reads: “In 1348, as the Black Death ravages Florence, a number of nobles and their servants retreat to the countryside Villa Santa. 

“As they try to wait out the plague in the hills of Tuscany with wine and sex, the group eventually must fight for their survival.”

Commenting their excitement underneath, one of Jessica’s adoring fans said: “Wowza! That was a lot to take in. Loving the modern music with the old era.”

As another added: “This is amazing.”

Jessica is best known for her role as murdered Chantelle Atkins in the BBC soap opera EastEnders.

Chantelle suffered horrific abuse at the hands of Gray in silence before he pushed her during a row where she fell on a knife in the open dishwasher.

Jessica took part in an infamous drinking trial that left hosts Ant and Dec in hysterics as they failed to keep their composure during filming.
