EastEnders’ Lorraine Stanley strips to swimsuit as she cools off on Slip ‘N Slide

EastEnders' Lorraine Stanley made the most of the hot weather

Lorraine said the sun had made her "feel all strange"

The actress joined Eastenders in 2017 as hapless gran Karen Taylor, however this wasn't the actress' first stint on the soap.

Back in 2004, Lorraine made her debut appearance on the soap in a special episode that told the story of Laila Morse's character Big Mo's feud with Pat Butcher – played by Pam St Clement.

Some fans of EastEnders will be surprised to find out that Lorraine was cast in the instalment that went back in time, before she was cast as Karen.

The episode showed a series of flashbacks that saw the two iconic characters in their younger days.

In one scene, Lorraine was seen playing the part of a younger Big Mo – who married Pat's brother Jimmy – alongside Emma Cooke taking up the role of a youthful Pat.

Lorraine looked totally different in an over the top wedding dress with her hair in an up-do that featured a short fringe across her forehead.

The clips prove that Lorraine is able to transform for any role as she pulled off a chic style worlds away from the usually unkempt style she dons as busy mum Karen on Albert Square.

Lorraine's character Karen is known for her unkempt hair and scruffy clothes, but is a far cry from her on-screen persona in real life.
