EastEnders' Bernadette Looks Unrecognisable In Romantic Beach Babe Snaps With Boyfriend

We may be used to seeing her as the somewhat scruffy Bernadette Taylor on EastEnders - more often than not pining after unrequited love interest Tiffany Butcher - but in reality, 21-year-old actress Clair Norris couldn't be more different from her character...

It's summer holiday season - and celebs are no exception! Whilst on-screen she's staying firmly put in Albert Square, Clair Norris has been enjoying a sunny holiday in Cyprus with her boyfriend Lewis Wood and the EastEnders actress couldn't resist sharing a few snaps from the beach.

Fans were amazed by how different Clair looked from her character Bernie, as she donned a pink ASOS dress and showed off an immaculate manicure and a glam makeup look - which couldn't be further from Bernadette's usual dressed-down style.

Clair started acting on EastEnders in 2017 but has quickly become a show favourite as part of the dysfunctional but lovable and fiercely tight-knit Taylor family. After stepping out at the British Soap Awards in a stunning LBD earlier this year, Clair was forced to defend herself from body-shaming trolls - but she more than knew how to handle them, saying:

'Don't normally react, but I have seen some really nasty comments on pictures from soap awards regarding my size... I could get upset but when I put it into perspective I just laugh. I love my job and I get to do something that I am so passionate about EVERY DAY and with the support from family and friends I am living my best life!!!!'

With her dream job, incredible fashion sense, happy relationship and frequent jet-setting, we'd say Clair is doing just that! Check out the video above to see the photos from Clair's loved-up holiday!
