She spilled: “There was a few times we’ve opened that Minute Mart fridge before and I’ve been like, ‘F***ing hell! Someone’s died in here.’

"There were a few milks in the fridge that were real and the smell – not good.

“So now in the Minute Mart, you know you have the fridges and sandwiches and soups and stuff? It’s all pictures of sandwiches and pictures of salads.

"But they look really good. They’ve been there for a while, I wouldn’t say years.”

Natalie joined EastEnders back in 1993 when she was just 10 years old, and apart from a couple of breaks she will have spend 30 years in Walford this year and she has no intention of leaving Albert Square in the back of a taxi any time soon.

She said: "I’ve been there 30 years this year. I had a break, but I was 10 when I started and I’m 40 this year. If it’s quiet and I walk past the Vic, I still stand and just look and think, ‘This is amazing.’"
