EASTENDERS actress Lorraine Stanley glammed up as she headed out to celebrate her birthday alongside her husband.
The 45-year-old, who is best known for playing Karen Taylor on the BBC soap, looked a far cry from her character as she sipped champagne at a posh sky-high London venue.
While her hair was in a trademark Karen bun, Lorraine opted for a much classier outfit – wearing a cream crochet top.
She was joined by her partner Mark Perez, who rarely shares the limelight with her on social media.
Sharing a picture as they tucked into brunch at Duck and Waffle, Lorraine wrote: “Happy birthday to me (Thankyou for all my lovely messages,I read them all and they mean a lot) 🥳🥂🍾😋.”
She was inundated with messages from her fans and famous co-stars who rushed to wish her a good day.
Her former on-screen son Danny Walters wrote: “Happy birthday Loo.”
Maisie Smith commented: “It’s the birthday b***h”.
While Gurlaine Garcha added: “Happy birthday lovely lady!!!! Xxx”
And Jessie Wallace said: “Happy birthday.”
Over the weekend Lorraine celebrated her birthday with a small bash at her house with her lookalike sisters Karen and Donna.
The house boasts a hot tub and it’s own bar so they no doubt had a great time.
Her followers couldn’t get over how similar they all looked, with some even branding them ‘triplets’.
