Former EastEnders actress Hetti Bywater who played Lucy Beale, has revealed she’s is ‘isolating as much as she can’ amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The actress took to her Instagram story posting a selfie with the caption: “[Bleep] quarantine.”
To clarify if she had the virus, the actress later wrote: “To all of you people asking no, I don’t have the virus but I’m isolating as much as I can as just because I don’t have symptoms doesn’t mean I’m not infected.
“As we are now aware, many can be carriers, and it can take days to show any signs.
“So many of us won’t know due to lack of testing. I am staying secluded not for fear for myself but in hope to keep others safe. As we should all be trying to do. We need to protect the vulnerable.”
The actress played Lucy from 2012 until 2015.
Although her character died in 2014, Hetti appeared in EastEnders 30th anniversary live week in 2015 which showed who killed Lucy.
The statement read: “In light of the spread of COVID-19, after much consideration, it has been decided that filming on EastEnders will be postponed until further notice.
“The decision was made after the latest government update. We will continue to follow the latest news and advice from the World Health Organisation and Public Health England.
“We have also taken the decision to reduce the amount of episodes we broadcast each week to two, so that we can ensure the audience can continue to enjoy EastEnders in their homes for as long as possible.”
At the time of writing, in the UK there are over 1950 cases of coronavirus and 104 people have died from the deadly virus.
