Fans of EastEnders will know actor Danielle Harold for her role as Lola Pearce on the show. It really wasn't the same when she left in 2015, but luckily for us her absence was short lived with Danielle reprising her role in 2015.

Fans have an image of Danielle in their heads informed by years of seeing her play Lola, but she recently went against this image, posting a picture of her new look on Instagram.

Danielle unveiled her new glam look, much to the surprise and subsequent joy of her followers. The picture saw her donning a black blazer and corset along with glam makeup.

She captioned the post with a green heart and gave a shout out to her makeup artist, @slrmua.

One person commented, "Wow you look stunning 🔥🔥❤️."

Another wrote, "You are so very beautiful 😍😍."

Another person added, "Love the eyeshadow. You always glam up nicely."

This new look is a far cry from the Danielle we know from the show and we are here for this transformation.

Here's some more about Danielle and her life on and outside of Eastenders.

Lola arrived in Albert Square in 2011. She was introduced as the granddaughter of Billy Mitchell and Julie Perkins.

Her main storylines revolved around her time in care, her relationship with her family (the Mitchells), a teenage pregnancy after a one-night stand with her cousin Ben Mitchell, fighting to keep daughter Lexi out of care, her friendships with Abi Branning, Jay Brown and Dexter Hartman her relationship with Peter Beale despite their families' disagreements.

Lola was written out of the show in 2015 when she moved to Newcastle, but joined the show once again in 2019 and we have to say her absence from the show was definitely felt.

Den Watts, played by Leslie Grantham

'Dirty' Den Watts was Albert's Square's original villain, terrorising his wife and neighbours and getting his teenaged daughter's best friend pregnant.His marriage to alcoholic Angie Watts was one of the most tempestuous the soap had ever seen and a year after we were introduced to them he handed her divorce papers on the 1986 Christmas Day episode – watched by a record breaking 30.15million viewers. He was "killed off" by an East End gang in 1989, but returned again in 2003 for an 18 month stint, before being killed off for good at the hands of his second wife, Chrissie Watts.His character has been described by EastEnders executive producer Louise Berridge as being arguably one of the most iconic soap characters ever.
