EastEnders fans couldn’t help but comment on popular character Sharon Watts’ youthful looks, with some claiming actress Letitia Dean looked “20 years old”.
Letitia, 54, joined the cast of the hit BBC soap opera when it started in 1985 and following her recent return to the Square after her character’s holiday in Australia, fans can’t get over her youthful looks.
Sharon returned to Albert Square with a bronzed tan, long blonde hair and flawless makeup, which had fans raving about her incredible looks.
A viewer tweeted: “Shazza keeps looking younger every day.
While a second wrote: “SHARON LOOKS 20 YEARS OLD.”
With a third affirmation: “Sharon is back and she looks like 25th Queen. #EastEnders.”
Her timeless look had fans wondering what her secret was, with a hint that she might have a plastic surgeon to thank.
They wrote: “Good evening to Sharon Watts plastic surgeons only #EastEnders.”
Sharon has returned as the show has taken on a lot of drama as Janine Butcher tried to cover up the truth about her car accident after moving Linda Carter to make it appear like she was driving in shock scenes.
Most recently, the couple were involved in a horror car accident which saw Janine crash into a tree after losing control of the car after dodging an oncoming truck as the duo discussed her love interest Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer, had argued.
During Tuesday’s explosive episode, Janine, played by Charlie Brooks, moved a drunk Linda, played by Kellie Bright, to make it appear as if she was driving.
Despite being unaware of Janine’s devious car crash plot, Sharon has threatened to expose Janine over her money scam which saw Linda’s daughter Nancy cheated out of £50,000.
Sharon has been a recurring member of the soap since her first appearance as a teenager in the 1980s, when the show began.
Letitia revealed after returning to set after lockdown that she suffers from “anxiety” at the thought of going back to work.
Letitia returned to the soap’s set to film Secrets from the Square in September 2020, and she described it as “weird,” describing the normally busy set as a “ghost town.”
In an interview with Woman’s Own magazine, the star said: “It was really amazing to do Secrets from the Square with Stacey Dooley.
“It was weird because it was like a ghost town, but I’m glad I did it because I was scared to go back in.”
Speaking about lockdown, Letitia revealed that it felt like “a bit of a holiday” at first, but over time it became “difficult”.
