Lorraine bid farewell to Albert Square last year just before the festive season following the dramatic exit of her on-screen son Keanu Taylor, who met a grisly end at the hands of Linda Carter.

Confirming her EastEnders departure in October, Lorraine reached out to fans via social media, saying: "Hey everyone! I'm so grateful for all of your lovely messages this past week. Thank you to Daran Little for creating the Taylors and to the BBC for giving me the opportunity to play such a fabulous character.

"Again your kind words of support have been amazing! ! ! I'm going to miss my Taylor/Baker famalam Clair Norris, Danny Walters, Roger Griffiths and Matthew Morrison. Much love."

After her departure from the cherished BBC soap, Lorraine has unveiled to her supporters that she's already bagged two brand-new gigs, both on stage and the telly. She recently embarked on filming for a fresh, hard-hitting British drama, named 'Departures'.
