Tamzin Outhwaite has revealed her mother has died.

The EastEnders actress paid tribute to her late mother Anna on Instagram, explaining that she died suddenly three weeks ago.

Sharing a photo of Emma, she wrote, "R.I.P Anna Patricia Santi.

"So lucky to have you as my mum. What an incredible human you were.

"Thank you Mum. You taught me how to live and you continue to teach me .."

The 47-year-old actress also shared a touching photo of her siblings, and explained, "These two beauties @jakeycakeyy @keswicko and I Lost our beautiful mum 3 weeks ago today,suddenly".

She also called Anna "THE best mum ever" in the post.

Tamzin has previously spoken out about her relationship with her mother, explaining how Anna taught her to be positive and grateful.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that life is easier if you give things a positive spin," she told the Daily Mail.

"I don’t constantly view the world through rose-tinted spectacles — but I do think a person who feels lucky is bound to be happier than someone who constantly feels hard-done-by or lives in a cloud of negative feelings.

“My mother, Anna, used to drum that into me when I was a child. She would say I was a lucky girl to be given such amazing opportunities, including going to the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London.

“So I do the same to my girls.”

Tamzin has two daughters, Marnie and Florence, with ex-husband Tom Ellis.
