EastEnders' Tilly Keeper is gorgeous! The actress, who is renowned for her long, blonde hair, took to Instagram on Wednesday after taking a trip to the hairdressers. In a photo captioned "new hair," Tilly looks to have had a choppy cut just below her shoulders, and looked lovely styled in loose waves and a side parting.

Tilly has enjoyed a busy week, and on Monday night she joined her EastEnders co-stars at the Inside Soap Awards, held at the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square, London. The 20-year-old looked stunning in a vintage silver dress adorned with sequins, which was teamed with matching heels and clutch.

Tilly also revealed what's in store for Louise in the next couple of weeks. Speaking to HELLO! Online, she said: "Louise is having a mellow moment after her burns and her mama coming and not helping any of the burns! What you are going to see onscreen in the next few weeks is her coming to terms with everything and trying to embrace a new lease of life. 

"I mean she is sixteen, and has had a lot of trauma, so she is just going to be overcoming that and gaining closure with everything that has happened."
