EastEnders star Louisa Lytton has confirmed that she’s signed up to be an NHS volunteer amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
The actress — who portrays Ruby Allen in The BBC One serial drama— posted a picture on Instagram Stories of the view before her, as she sits on a kerb opposite a car.
On the picture, she wrote: ‘Work out done. Comfies on. Back to the car park I go. This will be my spot for the calls I’ll be making as an NHS volunteer.’
The government had previously asked members of the public to volunteer to help the NHS, carrying out tasks such as delivering items including medicines and food, and phoning people who are self-isolating on their own.
During a Q&A session on her Instagram page last week while self-isolating, Louisa revealed that she feared her approaching wedding may be in jeopardy due the outbreak.
‘I’m going to learn a language and continue to plan my wedding and keep praying that it’s going ahead,’ she told one fan who enquired about her quarantine plans.
When another asked if her nuptials were still going ahead, she crossed her fingers for the camera, adding: ‘Yeah, I mean, please please please, let it be.
‘It’s not for a little while so I think we’re going to be all right. Scary times.’
Louisa is best known for playing Ruby in EastEnders — a role which she initially portrayed during 2005 and 2006. After a twelve year gap, Ruby returned to the soap in 2018, and has been a part of several huge storylines ever since.
More recently, Ruby has been in a relationship with Max Branning (Jake Wood), and she purchased the E20 from Mel Owen (Tamzin Outhwaite).
EastEnders continues Monday 30 March at 7:30pm on BBC One.
