EastEnders: Sharon Watts returns to Albert Square after the break

EastEnders’ Letitia Dean returned to Albert Square on Wednesday night, with viewers left stunned by her transformation.

The 54-year-old actress, who has been a regular on the soap opera since the very first episode aired in 1985, showed off her impressive weight loss as she re-entered Sharon Watts’ footsteps.

Speaking of her glamorous new look, a confident Sharon, who boasted a bronzed tan and a sleek poker straight blow-dry, said in the episode, “I’ve been pampered, polished and plucked.”

And fans of the show soon took to Twitter to comment on the character’s transformation, which they said “blew her mind by years.”

Letitia has been open about her yo-yo weight over the years and in 2020 revealed how she was attacked by cruel trolls.

“I’ve said quite a few terrible things about myself. “She’s too fat, the other actors complain that they don’t fit on the same set with her,” she said on spin-off show Secrets from the Square.

The actress was one of the originals when the show began and was only 17 at the time.

Letitia previously opened up about how she faced constant criticism about her body image – so much so that it damaged her confidence and contributed to her getting a breast reduction as a teenager.

Although there were also medical reasons why she decided to go under the knife, Letitia admitted that obnoxious remarks had contributed to her decision.

“Back pain also had a lot to do with this decision,” she said Hello! magazine in October 2001. “But I was much more insecure about myself and there was a lot of emphasis placed on how I looked.”

“I still get annoyed at times by the attention to my appearance — it annoys all women, doesn’t it? – but I have these things in mind these days.”

After reprising her role as Sharon from 2001 to 2006, Letitia took a break from the soap and a year later starred in Strictly Come Dancing, with the show helping her get in shape.

The BBC favourite, who finished fourth in the competition with dancer Darren Bennett, said it had been the catalyst for her to rethink her lifestyle.

she said Closer : “It started with Strictly Come Dancing because I felt great by the end of the show and the live tour.

“But the main reason I wanted to do something about my shape was because I was so sick of extreme dieting and my weight yo-yo.

“I woke up one morning and had enough. For years and years – as long as I can remember – my weight has gone up and down. I would do fad diets like Atkins or just eat eggs.”

Letitia said while she would be able to “lose a stone in a couple of weeks” from the extreme dieting, it wouldn’t be long before she would “fall back into my old ways and put everything back on.”

But it was while starring on the stage show High School Musical in 2008 that the actress dropped a stunning two stone — from 10st 4lbs to 8st 3lbs and dropping four dress sizes.

Letitia shared how she lost weight the “good old fashioned way” by increasing her exercise and choosing healthier meals.

“I went from a size 14 to a size 10 and have never looked back. I started going to the gym for the first time last year and now I love it — running and boxercise are my favorite things to do now,” she said Closer back then.

“I lost weight the good old fashioned way, through dancing and exercising — I didn’t starve myself or resort to some crazy fad diet.”

And Sharon has certainly made a mark with her return to Wednesday’s show in Albert Square.

Fans rushed to Twitter to congratulate her and praise her new look.
