Tilly Keeper hits the town with EastEnders co-stars as she celebrates her 20th birthday

And she deserves it after what Louise Mitchell has been through

| Updated:

Filming all those EastEnders episodes must be pretty hard work – but last night, Tilly Keeper found the perfect way to let her hair down.

The actress, who plays Louise Mitchell in the soap, was joined by co-stars Shaheen Jafargholi and Jasmine Armfield as she hit the town to celebrate her 20th birthday.

The trio looked full of beans as they and another male friend took a taxi into London to enjoy the nightlife.

And they must’ve been having a whale of a time, as they were still smiling when they were pictured again later in the evening.

Tilly and Jasmine (Bex Fowler) were both kitted out in snazzy black dresses for the occasion, while former Britain’s Got Talent star Shaheen (who now plays Shakil Kazemi in the soap) wore a smart black shirt with white stars on it.

Tilly was also carrying a denim jacket in case temperatures dropped later in the evening.

It sounds like Tilly had a brilliant birthday all-round. Earlier in the day, the official EastEnders Twitter account posted a picture of the actress that had been super-imposed with balloons, presents and party hats.

The tweet included the words: “Happy Birthday @TillyKeeper! Have a wonderful day.”

And the London-born actress clearly loved it, as she replied: “A masterpiece… thanks guys!”

If anyone deserved a big night out, it’s Tilly and Jasmine. They’ve really been put through the wringer lately, what with their characters having been mercilessly bullied by Alexandra and Madison.

Their ordeal only recently came to an end, after their tormentors were taken away by police at the school prom.

As for the future, who knows what’s in store for the young stars. One thing that seems certain, though, is that we won’t be seeing Tilly’s crush, Harry Styles, in the show.

Earlier this week, she revealed that she’d suggested to BBC bosses that they recruit the One Direction heartthrob, but her pleas had fallen on deaf ears.

She told the Daily Star Sunday: “I tried to sneak in the idea of having Harry in, but it wasn’t allowed.

“It was so disappointing.”
