EASTENDERS star Clair Norris is unrecognisable from downtrodden soap character Bernie Taylor after taking a break from the soap.

The 23-year-old actress wowed followers as she shared the new snap to her Instagram page now her character has left Walford for a while.


In the photo, Clair has ditched Bernie's traditional ponytail, with her long dark hair straight and sleek around her shoulders.

She is smiling for the camera in minimal make-up and sporting a healthy tan, holding back a coy smiles as she pouts her lips.

Her piercing blue eyes have been highlighted with eyeshadow and mascara, and her brows more heavily made up.

Clair is wearing hoop earrings, and a khaki green top – with her long-term boyfriend beaming by her side.

She admitted they'd been boozing on strong Long Island Iced Tea cocktails in the post's caption, writing: "After a lot of Long🏝🧊🫖’s"

Her followers were quick to share their admiration for her look, with one writing: "The east end girl with the beautiful eyes 🙌❤️❤️"

Another wrote: "You're looking amazing!"

And a third: "You look beautiful 😍"

Clair and Lewis recently travelled to Cornwall for a romantic staycation to celebrate their third anniversary.

In a sweet tribute at the time, she gushed: "Three years of memories & a lifetime to come.

"Thank you for being my partner in crime. I love you endlessly…"

And in April, she revealed that she and her beau plan to move in together next year.

Clair shot to fame when she joined EastEnders in 2017 as a member of the popular Taylor family.

She has been embroiled in high-profile storylines over the years, most recently her addiction to diet pills while acting as a surrogate for Rainie and Stuart.

Pregnant Bernie recently left Walford to focus on the baby away from the couple – but she will return.
