Laurie made her debut on EastEnders as long-suffering Jane in 2004 before taking a break from the soap in 2012.

Returning in 2014, Laurie stayed on for another three years before her second exit in 2017.

The star,  who has eight-year-old daughter Erin, recently admitted she has no plans on returning to the soap, however.

Speaking to the Sunday People newspaper, Laurie said: “It’s the hardest gig on telly. It’s just relentless and I couldn’t believe just how knackered I was when I left.

“It’s all-consuming and the thing is that when you’re in that bubble you don’t even realise how all-consuming it is.

“But you know what happened? I left there, I had a rest, I fell in love, I got married, I had a life! I had the most brilliant time there and I have friends there but I’ve got no plans to go back.”

She added that the “door’s open and it’s a never-say-never scenario” but she’s “just really enjoying exploring other stuff at the moment”.
