EastEnders icon Jacqueline Jossa looks a world away from Lauren Branning as she modelled her stunning new swimwear collection in a selection of snaps. The 31-year-old actress, originally from Bexley, South East London, has taken to Instagram to share photos of herself wearing pieces for her latest collection with fashion brand In The Style.

The mum-of-two looked gorgeous as she showed off an array of new looks. In one photo, the soap star donned a low-cut black bikini top and matching high-waisted bottoms.

In another stunning snap, she was smiled at the camera while sporting a multi-coloured swimsuit with a waist belt. Writing in the caption, Jacqueline shared her excitement at the launch of her new swimwear line.

Jacqueline Joss returned to EastEnders as Lauren Branning in January and has already caused a stir. Following a fall-out with her best pal Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty), Lauren slept with her fiancé Zack Hudson (James Farrar) in the ultimate betrayal.

Britney Wainwright (Lola Campbell) revealed the pair's secret on their wedding day while Whit and Zack stood at the altar about to say "I do". This sparked fury in Whit who dumped Zack and consequently moved away from Walford with her new baby Dolly.

Since the revelation, Lauren has been the talk of the town with Zack even turning on her. As she is public enemy umber one, her ex-boyfriend Peter Beale (Thomas Law) has taken her under his wing, but are the two former lovers only friends?

EastEnders continues on Wednesday at 7:30pm on BBC One.
