During her time playing Louise, her character has been caught up in a feud with Abi Branning and was at the centre of a bullying storyline, which ended badly when Louise's prom dress caught fire.

Currently Louise is heavily pregnant with her first child, but she has no idea her fiancé and father of her baby Keanu is also the father of Sharon Mitchell's baby.

After pregnant Louise ended things with Keanu, he ended up sleeping with Louise's stepmother, who he had an affair with last year.

As Louise and Keanu reunited, Sharon also discovered she's pregnant and a prenatal DNA test proved her husband, Phi,l isn't the father.

With Christmas set to be dramatic, it looks like the truth will finally come out.

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
