    Former EastEnders star Britanny Papple looks completely different compared to her days as Louise Mitchell.

    The 24-year-old actress was the third actress to take on the role of Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) and Lisa Fowler's (Lucy Benjamin)'s daughter in the BBC One soap.

    She joined and left the serial drama in 2010 and the role of Louise was later taken over by Tilly Kepper.

    Following her departure from the soap, Brittany trained at Millennium Performing Arts and graduated in 2017.

    In 2018, Brittany revealed she was heading to Disneyland for a future as a dancer at the world famous park.

    She still regularly updates fans on her life on social media, where she looks unrecognisable from Albert Square alter ego.

    Brittany now sports platinum blonde locks and is grown up enough to sip cocktails with pals.

    She also appears to enjoy a jet-set lifestyle, with past trips to Barcelona and Milan also shared with fans.

    Some of her Instagram followers can't quite believe that she used to play the EastEnders character, with one commenting on her page: "Louise Mitchell that you?"

    Brittany played Louise in some very major storylines for the character including the custody dispute between her parents and suffering abuse at the hands of her brother Ben Mitchell.

    After Ben was abused by Phil's ex Stella Crawford, he turned his hand to abusing his little sister.

    Just like evil Stella, Ben burned little Louise's hand with a hot spoon so she would "learn a lesson" the same way he had done.

    Eventually Phil learned of Ben's twisted behaviour and Louise went back to life with her mum Lisa.

    The role of Louise was first portrayed by Rachel Cox between 2001 and 2003, before actress Danni Bennatar took over the part in 2008.

    Tilly later played the role from 2016 when the character was reintroduced to EastEnders.

    Louise fled Walford in Christmas 2019 after she learned her boyfriend Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) had been sleeping with Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean).

    As well as having an affair, it was later revealed that he was the father of Sharon's unborn baby, and not Phil.

    After leaving Keanu for dead, Louise departed to Portugal with Lisa and her daughter Peggy to escape imprisonment.

    The door appears to have been left open for the character to return.

    EastEnders airs Monday to Thursday on BBC One
