Remember EastEnders’ little Courtney Mitchell?
Megan Jossa, 25 – who is Jacqueline Jossa’s cousin – played the daughter of Tiffany and Grant Mitchell in the BBC drama in 2006.
When Courtney was born, it was not known whether her biological father was Tony Hills or Grant Mitchell, however it was later revealed that Grant was her father.
Courtney’s mother Tiffany tragically died in 1998 when she was hit by a car while she was running after Grant, who was trying to keep Courtney away from her.
Megan took on the role of a schoolgirl when she was 11 years old.
The father-daughter duo returned to the Square in 2006 after their time in Rio de Janeiro.
Courtney began playing with her stepmother Carla who had moved with them to Walford, and after weeks of misbehaving, Grant decided that the best option for them was to move to Portugal.
The young girl was revealed again in 2016, but was played by actress Alice Holly Nokes.
Meanwhile, Carissa and Josephine O’Meara played young Courtney from 1997 to 1999.
It’s been 16 years since she joined EastEnders and Megan is now all grown up with BIG social media followings.
The actress boasts an impressive 14.4k followers on Instagram.
Shortly after leaving EastEnders Megan played Annie Moore in The Bill.
A year later, she starred in Coming of Age as Amy and Kim in 2009’s The Take.
Megan played herself in Theater School from 2016 to 2017.
The TV star also played Debbie in the Billy Elliot musical from 2008 to 2009.
Cousin Jac, 29, also starred in EastEnders as Lauren Branning from 2010 to 2018.
She then won I’m a Celebrity in 2018 and is now a huge influencer, estimated to be worth around £1.2 million.
