EastEnders star Lorraine Stanley, who plays Karen Taylor on the BBC soap, looked completely unrecognisable as she shared a new snap on social media.

The star showed off her transformation into a hedgehog, opting for a huge hood and intricate face make-up, looking worlds away from the feisty matriarch.

Sharing the striking difference, Lorraine shared a side by side look of herself as she tried to remove the make-up from her face after the job had finished.
