As the first face of EastEnders’ Lauren Branning, Madeline Duggan’s recent Instagram snaps show that she’s definitely grown up.

The 25-year-old brunette has shaken off her old image as the baby-faced cutie who starred on our screens as Max Branning’s daughter.

Taking to Instagram to share a gorge selfie of herself chilling at home for a self-care evening, fans were quick to comment on her new, sophisticated look.

“Gorgeous picture,” wrote one commenter, while another wrote, “You’re piff bruv with an attitude❤️."

Another keen bean wrote, "Hi madeline such a beautiful woman! best looking ever any chance of a reply back".

Then there’s the tantalising picture of her catching some rays by the pool.

“Sensational 😍,” an Instagrammer commented.

And, bizarrely, one said, “I love you and I would like to sing a song to you.”

Okay, then…

Definitely making the most of her camera, Madeline has become a bit of a model, striking poses all over the shop.

And, again, by another poolside.

Back in the day, Madeline's love affair with the camera began on EastEnders between May 2006 and June 2010.
