Scott Maslen has the picture perfect life away from his EastEnders’ character Jack Branning, who has had his fair share of ups and downs on the BBC soap.
Since arriving in Albert Square in October 2007 by splashing Ronnie Mitchell with a puddle after he drove past her, he then went on to tragically lose her after they got married, when she drowned at their wedding.
Although he hasn’t been so lucky in love on the soap, thankfully the hunky actor’s own life is very settled with his stunning wife, son, and the family dog Chewbacca.
Here’s his family life away from the TV spotlight…

Who is Scott Maslen’s wife?
Scott’s wife is the gorgeous Estelle Rubio, a music producer and singer, and is often pictured out and about smooching her handsome husband.
You may recognise her as she’s sung with Basement Jaxx and has performed at venues such as London O2, Green Meadows Festival and fashion week.
The pair first met on Primrose Hill in 1999 to watch the total eclipse and have been together ever since, getting married in 2008 in a grand ceremony at a stately home in front of 150 guests.
Do Scott and Estelle have any children?
Scott and Estelle have one son Zak who was born in 2001.
The couple have shared several snaps of the teenager, who is now almost as tall as his TV star dad, jetting off on holiday to Ibiza where Estelle often DJs.
In one snap where it appears as though age hasn’t caught up with either of his parents, Zak poses with them as Scott wraps his arms around his son and wife.
She wrote in the caption: “Wishing I was still in #ibiza …with the fam #growuptoofast”
What do the couple do for hobbies?
Aside from acting in EastEnders Scott has a love for fishing, escaping to the countryside to get knee deep in water and find a spot of dinner.
In one snap from last summer Scott showed off a proud find writing in the caption: “Not the best quality photo but it’s taken from the back of my camera. I managed to get out fishing at my secret lake in lovely Kent and was rewarded with this beautiful 46lb corker!! Happy times.”
And after appearing on Celebrity MasterChef back in 2015, it appears the actor has picked up a few cooking skills along the way.
Most recently during lockdown, Scott who also appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, has been helping to cook meals for NHS frontline staff during the coronavirus pandemic.
Sharing a clip of him whipping up food he wrote: “Delivery time! @youdonatewedeliver My experience on @masterchefuk definitely helped with cooking in large numbers! #100 meals for @nhsenglandldn Link in Bio to donate if you can! until next week To do it all again #homecookedmeal”
The married pair are also very much into their fitness routine as is visible by their lithe gym-honed figures.
Scott, who has been crowned Inside Soap’s Sexiest Man before, has a rippling set of abs which he has flashed several times on Instagram, meanwhile Estelle doesn’t look a day over 21.
On holiday in 2018 Scott posted an enviable picture of the super hot couple, sharing the secret behind their ripped bodies was the Athelean-X fitness programme.
It has the tagline “If you want to look like an athlete you’ve got to train like an athlete!”, and Scott wrote of the snap: “On holiday with the lovely wife… @estellerubiomusic our son Zak took this photo. We’re a bit obsessed with #athleanx fitness at the moment!”
