Natalie Cassidy, an EastEnders actress, has flaunted her dramatic transformation for a night out.
In the video shared on her Instagram Story, the actress, who is best known for her role as Sonia Fowler from Albert Square, was unrecognizable.
Natalie, 38, had a blunt fringe and her dark hair fell in bouncy waves over her shoulders, completely unlike her alter ego.
The mother of two wore a slinky black gown that was a far cry from Sonia’s usual attire.
The star’s skin was glowing with a natural make-up look, but she had dark mascara all over her eyes to draw attention to them.
Her polished look was completed by hoop earrings and a large necklace.
Natalie revealed to fans that she had dressed up for her younger sister Ellia’s 30th birthday celebrations.
“Off to celebrate Ellia’s birthday tonight,” she said.
“Got all glammed up, all dolled up, you know what I mean?”
“Ready for a little party,” she added.
Natalie – who has played Sonia in the BBC soap on and off since 1993 – is close to her family, who she has said are the “best family in the world”.
Last year, they were devastated when the star’s father passed away.
Last May, the soap star shared an Instagram photo of her father with fans, writing, “I lost my precious daddy three weeks ago today.”
“I wasn’t planning on making this post, but I felt I couldn’t come on here and be a [bleep] without letting everyone know what’s going on in my life.”
“He was my whole world and I’m not sure what I’m going to do without him.”
The actress expressed her gratitude for having such wonderful people in her life to help her get through the ordeal.
“Charles William Cassidy, 1937-2021,” the post concluded. The best father and grandfather on the planet.
“We miss you so much but we have each other because of you.”
