EastEnders Clair Norris looks dramatically different to Bernie role on holiday

EastEnders star Clair Norris looked stunning in a glam holiday snap – but she looked dramatically different from her BBC soap character.

The actress, 24, has played soap student Bernie Taylor in EastEnders since she joined the BBC cast in 2017.

Clair took to Instagram on Saturday (May 21) with a slew of sunny snaps – where she wowed in a pink and white gingham mini dress.

The smiling star could be seen posing for a photo outside her four-star hotel Barcelo Santiago in Tenerife, where she was sporting an enviable tan.

The glowing celeb tied her hair up in a tight bun as she accessorised with a brown handbag and chunky earrings.

The TV talent was stood in front of a dazzling sunset spilling across the ocean – poles apart from the drizzly British scenes Bernie has come to expect from Walford.

Catching up with her fans from sunny Spain, she captioned the snap: "10erife".

Claire's famous friends and fans rushed to fawn over her latest look in the comments.

Her co-star Emma Barton, who plays Honey Mitchell, shared a swooning heart-eyes emoji.

Her pal Milly Zero, who plays Dotty Cotton, wrote: "Your the only 10 I see"[sic].

One heartbreaking moment saw her break down in tears over the abuse, which included insulting names.

Clair said: "It all started for me in the playground with name-calling which now, as I have got older, I have come to realise is bullying.

"I just saw it as name-calling because it would happen one day and then not the next. They would be my friend then not be my friend.

"When it happens every day you don’t associate it with a specific word or person.

“It wasn’t for a long long time that I realised that was actual bullying and not OK and it was another pupil who told the teacher in the end what was going on.
