EASTENDERS actress Lorraine Stanley is a far cry from her character Karen when she attends Zack Morris’s leaving party.
The 45-year-old swapped Karen’s messy bun for loose curls that hugged her face and wore a chic black dress.
She shared a series of pictures with Zack, who recently quit playing her on-screen son Keegan on the BBC.
Reminiscing about their time on the soap, she wrote: “Wow, what an honor to play your Mom @_zack_morris, you are a little gem!!
“Your passion and commitment to this profession is impressive! I laughed so hard working with you and the entire Taylor/Baker famalam, memories I will treasure forever!
“You are so talented, you are generous, kind, professional, practical, the list goes on… Shine like the star you are 🌟🌟🌟 I love you Son!! ✌🏼💙 (Mother 2) xxxxx. ”
An emotional Zack replied: “This tears my eyes and warms my heart at the same time. Love you so much Lou, very much! I really couldn’t ask for a better mom on screen💙 You’re nothing but a blessing X”
Zack, 22, also joined co-stars Jamie Borthwick and Tony Clay in the match.
Speaking about leaving Walford after it was announced this week, he said: “After five beautiful years on this incredible show, I have made the difficult decision to leave Walford and go for Keegan Butcher -Baker rests well.
“This show has quite frankly changed my life for the better.”
It comes as The Sun on Sunday revealed that Maisie Smith, who played Keegan’s wife on the soap, will be returning to the role of Tiffany for a cameo after giving herself up.
A source said: “The owners feel that Tiffany has unfinished business with Keegan that needs to be resolved before he leaves.
“So they decided to ask her to come back for an episode. Viewers will have to wait and see if they can mend their relationship or if the bad relationship we’ve seen between them will continue. ”
During the run to Tiffany’s exit, fans saw her devastated when she caught her husband Keegan cheating on her with Dotty Cotton (Milly Zero).
She continued to date Aaron Monroe but broke up with him after he became aggressive.
She was later seen spending the night with Keegan and had hoped he would leave with her – but the chaos led to them missing each other.
