The 31-year-old actress - who has played Ruby Allen in two stints on the BBC One soap, returning to Walford in 2018 - is giving fans the chance to own the green Zatchels bag she purchased when she received her first wages for the show.

Louisa has teamed up with OK! magazine on their Closet Clear Out for Refuge campaign, and is also putting her bold pink PVC dress she wore on her 30th birthday and an Emerald Green Zeynep Kartal Dressunder under the hammer.

The organisation supports victims of domestic violence and it's particularly "close to [her] heart" as her alter-ego faced her own rape storyline.

She said: "Refuge is an organisation that's very close to my heart and I feel it is very important in times like these that we can do as much as we can - as little as this is - to help those that are in vulnerable situations and those that need it most."

Meanwhile, Louisa recently signed up to volunteer for the NHS to help in the fight against coronavirus.

The brunette beauty answered the UK government's call for helpers to assist National Health Service nurses and doctors.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, she said: "Work out done. Comfies on. Back to the car park I go. This will be my spot for the calls I'll be making as an NHS volunteer. (sic)"
