EastEnders' Lorraine Stanley bursts with pride over daughter's school achievement in rare post

EASTENDERS Lorraine Stanley has shared her pride over her daughter's school achievement in a rare post about her children.

The actress took to her Instagram to gush over Nancy after she became a school councillor, admitting she was a "proud mummy".

Lorraine, 45 – who plays Karen Taylor in the BBC soap- took to her Instagram stories to share the personal news.

She took a up-close photograph of her fiver-year-old's blazer, which featured a yellow pin badge with the words "school council" printed on.

"That's my girl," Lorraine captioned the snap as she told fans she was a "proud mummy" alongside a smiley and a pink heart emoji.

The mum-of-one rarely shares updates of Nancy – and last posted a picture of her in July as they went on staycation together.

The 45-year-old snapped Nancy, 5, as she paddled in the sea water in a blue tie-dye dress with her hair neatly tied up in pigtails.

Proud mum Lorraine, who shares her daughter with her long-term partner Mark Perez, told fans how the little girl is "her world".

She added blue hearts to the caption to match the colour of the stunning ocean landscape and cloudy skies as they stood on a stone-covered beach.

Her soap co-stars were quick to head to the comments to compliment the snap, including Balvinder Sopal and Jessie Wallace.

Lorraine has been enjoying plenty of family time lately, as she was pictured with her three lookalike sisters for her mum's birthday this week.

The actress looked a far cry from her character – Karen Taylor – on the BBC soap, thanks to a sleek hair style.

Gone was her trademark messy bun and instead, Lorraine wore her hair off her face with a chic hair band, alongside a dress and Gucci sliders.

She captioned the picture: “Mum's three times cancelled belated 70th birthday party! We opted for pub drinks this time instead."

Lorraine has played downtrodden Karen on EastEnders since 2017.

The single mum who rocked up to E20 with her children Keanu (Danny Walters), Keegan Baker (Zack Morris), Bernadette (Clair Norris), Riley and Chatham – played by real life brothers Tom and Alfie Jacobs.

The family have been embroiled in numerous dramatic storylines since including domestic abuse, poverty and racial profiling.

Lorraine is now backing a new campaign to help people recognise whether a colleague could be suffering from domestic abuse.

It comes after her on-screen daughter Chantelle was murdered by her abusive husband Gray. 

Speaking about the campaign, launched by Domestic Abuse Alliance and the Retail Trust, Lorraine said: “No one should live in fear of abuse and knowing what to look out for could save a colleague’s life.

“Businesses and employers can play a vital role in helping to tackle domestic abuse and protect their workforce, before it’s too late.”
