EASTENDERS actress Clair Norris celebrated her 23rd birthday with cocktails and afternoon tea, calling the day “perfect”.

The pretty brunette looked a world away from her alter ego – down trodden Bernadette Taylor in her photo.

Clair, who is used to dressing down as Karen's daughter in the soap, looked glam as she was pictured with a huge glass of gin next to her.

She captioned the photo: “I Truly Am Such A Lucky Girl! My 23rd Birthday Has Been Perfect & I Wouldn’t Of Changed A Thing”

In amongst the polaroid snaps, Clair shared an insight to how she celebrated the special day with a cake stand full of delicious cupcakes, board games and plenty of booze.

Fans rushed to wish the soap star many happy returns as her co-star Maisie Smith also liked the post.

Fans of the show will know Maisie's character Tiffany and Bernadette are best friends.

The actress joined EastEnders as Bernadette in 2017, joining her half-siblings Keanu, Chatham and Riley Taylor and Keegan Baker in Albert Square.

The character has been involved in a pregnancy, a miscarriage and an incest storyline since setting foot in the Square.

Speaking about when she was cast, she said: “I never in a million years thought my first TV role would be in EastEnders.

“It’s surreal but I’m ever so grateful to be given the opportunity."
