On her birthday, Lorraine revealed she spent the day at work and then enjoyed the rest of her day with her partner Mark Perez.

Lorraine, who plays the hilarious Karen Taylor, joined the soap in 2017.

Karen moved onto Albert Square with five of her six children: Keanu, Keegan, Bernadette, Chatham and Riley.

Since their arrival, her ex-boyfriend Mitch has also moved onto the Square, and her sister Kandice, played by former S Club 7 member Hannah Spearritt, has made several appearances.

Earlier this year Mitch, who is the father of Chantelle and Keegan, was doing some work for Karen and had a young girl with him.

It was later revealed that the young girl was his daughter Bailey.
