LETITIA Dean is one of the original cast members of EastEnders and made her debut in the first episode in 1985.
Since then viewers have seen her character Sharon Watts go through marriages, divorces, pregnancies and even attempted murder.
But one thing that has had viewers fixated lately is 55-year-old Letitia's impressive weight loss.
The iconic EastEnders actress is believed to have dropped four dress sizes and, speaking of the transformation, said: "I've been pampered, polished and plucked."
Fans regularly take to social media to compliment her, with one recently tweeting: "I don't think Letitia Dean has ever looked better."
Another said: "Letitia looks amazing!"

And a third added: "Letitia Dean looks fab, she’s inspired me to get fit. She looks like a different person."
Ahead of her decision to lose weight, Letitia revealed she was subjected to cruel trolling over her appearance.
Speaking on EastEnders spin-off show Secrets from the Square, she said: "I had quite a lot of horrible things said about me. 'She's too fat, the other actors complain they can't fit on the same set with her'."
Letitia previously told Closer how running and boxercise are now "two of her favourite things" and she also opened up about cutting down to 1,300 calories a day.
