The 31-year-old star returned to the BBC One soap as Ruby Allen in 2018 following a 12-year break, and she looks to be sticking around on Albert Square for the foreseeable future because she "loves it there".

She is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "Initially, I was only going back for a certain storyline. But I've stayed because I love it there.

"I feel like I've gone home.

"I don't worry about being killed off or anything like that. You can't worry about it.

"I'm a jobbing actress and I have been for 15 years. So if my time on 'EastEnders' comes to an end, then that's the way it goes."

Louisa recently admitted she can't wait to work with her good friend Lacey Turner - who plays Stacey Slater on the BBC One soap - again in 2020.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "She'll be back next year some time. Hopefully soon - I miss her.

"We work so well together, we're such good friends. It'll be lovely to have her back."

Louisa also thinks Lacey's Dusty is like a mini me of her mum.

She added: "Lacey is doing amazing, her baby is so cute. She looks just like Lacey."

Stacey has previously had affairs with Max Branning (Jake Wood) on 'EastEnders', but it was her best friend Ruby who hooked up with him earlier this year, and Louisa was shocked about the plot when she first read about it in the script.

She said: "Jake is such a brilliant actor, as we all know, and I think the dynamic has worked really well.

"Ruby is coming into her own and she's very confident. I don't think Max is used to that so it's someone to out Max Max in a way.

"Ruby and Max kind of make sense. She's a powerhouse in her own right, she owns businesses, she's got loads of money. I guess that would be attractive to him.

"But I was a bit like, 'Woah,' when I first read the script."
