EastEnders' Clair Norris looks very different to Bernadette as she sips cocktail | The Sun

EASTENDERS star Clair Norris looked very different as she glammed up for a night out in Malta.

The actress was worlds away from her character Bernie Taylor on the BBC soap, wearing a stunning red dress.

Clair, 24, wore her sleek brunette tresses loose and opted for dewy make-up, which highlighted her natural beauty.

The soap star showed off a lovely tan on her recent holiday with pals.

Clair shared a photo of her enjoying a litre cocktail at St Paul's Bay, which is a village located in the north of Malta.

The star has played Bernie since 2017 but took time off last year to film her first Panorama.

The special was about the UK’s obesity problem and saw Clair break down in tears as she revealed she had been bullied over her weight, especially by other children at school.

Clair said: "This is probably where the name-calling would have happened I don’t say it’s bullying that’s my own personal thing.

"I don't remember specific names, I don't remember it clearly, but I suppose if it happens every day it just kinda blurs into one. My mum will remember more."

She then sat down with her mother who said she used to brush off mean comments and thought it was normal to be called "chubby".

Her mum recalled: "You didn't even see it as bullying.

"It wasn't until other people pointed it out, and they were like 'but they're calling her this' and you were like, 'yeah they call me chubby but that is just their nickname for me'."

Clair began to cry and her mother reached over to her, adding as she also choked up: "You never thought that was an issue and you thought it was OK for people to call you names, and you just accepted it."

Later, Clair spoke about her weight and eating habits.

She said: "What I've discovered is that mental health does play a big part and I don't think I even realised, it wasn't me just going home eating food, that wasn't me just eating, it was me getting out my stress and my anger.

"Eat my feelings, eat my feelings, they'll go away."
