Selina lives in France, with her daughter and boyfriend who she called Harvey.
Selina is living a happy life without Jack as she dislikes him for almost killing Penny unintentionally. A few men were after Jack because of a money he owed them and Selina and Penny were attacked, leaving Penny paralysed from the waist down and Selina traumatized.
Selina is the ex-wife of Jack Branning, and mother of their daughter Penny Branning. This was Beaumont's second role in EastEnders as she previously played Helen Graham in 2000. She was listed by Digital Spy as a suspect in Max Branning's hit-and-run. However, Lauren Branning was the culprit. She appears between 21 January 2008 and 1 February 2008.
Selina is first heard when she leaves a message for Jack and Ronnie Mitchell speaks to her on the phone. Ronnie later visits Selina and speaks to her about Jack not being allowed to see their daughter, Penny. It is revealed that Penny is in a wheelchair, paralysed from the waist down. Jack sleeps with Selina in his club's office and they are seen by Ronnie's sister Roxy Slater. A week later, Selina phones Jack to say that she and Penny are leaving to live in France. On 1 December 2008, Jack tells Ronnie that Selina is engaged to remarry. It is revealed on 2 March 2009 that Selina got married over the weekend to a man named James and that Jack did not attend.
