EastEnders Sharon star Letitia Deans glam snaps – striping off to racy gowns

EastEnders star Letitia Dean takes centre stage next week as her character Sharon Watts finds herself in danger.

The 54-year-old actress has played the feisty Walford resident since 1985 and fans of the BBC One soap will see her faced with more drama in upcoming scenes.

Sharon and Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) prepare for the grand opening of Peggy’s and despite being sacked, Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) orders the staff around.

Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) warns the trio that she won’t stop with her vendetta against them but they are stopped in their tracks when two men enter waving a gun.

Kat and Sharon panic and try to call Sam for help and Shirley takes cover in the office but a gunshot rings out.

As Sharon finds herself in the middle of the latest drama in Albert Square, Daily Star has taken a look back at some of Letitia's glamorous snaps.

Slinky black dress

Letitia sent fans wild with her new look at the British Soap Awards last week as she showed off her incredible weight loss in a glamorous black dress.

ITV viewers watched the actress receive the the Outstanding Achievement Award from her on-screen mum Anita Dobson at the showbiz bash.

However, fans appeared to be distracted by Letitia's weight loss transformation.

Stripping off

The actress stripped off for her stage role in Calendar Girls back in 2010.

Speaking about her role at the time, Letitia said: "It’s been so cold in rehearsals that I haven’t taken my coat off let alone my bra.

“It’s something new for me as I’ve never taken my clothes off on stage before.

"I just hope there will be some cheating bits and I will certainly need bigger buns than normal."

Bright and beautiful

Letitia wore a brightly-coloured dress for her stint on EastEnders spin-off series Secrets From The Square.

The programme was created in 2020 after the global pandemic forced the BBC One soap off for the first time ever.

However, fans were that still able to get their fix of Walford action while production got shut down.

Secrets From the Square saw Stacey Dooley chat to EastEnders stars about the show and behind the gossip.

Glitz and glamour

While on a break from EastEnders in 2008, Letitia played the role of Ms Darbus in High School Musical Live On Stage.

Commenting on her casting at the time, she said: "I am absolutely delighted to be playing Ms Darbus.

"She has a great love of theatre and the arts and adores her pupils and wants them to succeed.

"She's firm but fair and takes no nonsense. Musical theatre is my first love and this will be the first time I have been on a musical stage since I was in Annie when I was 13.."

Letitia attended the afterparty of the premiere of High School Musical Live On Stage wearing a show-stopping silver dress held up by luck alone.

Fitted dress

Letitia oozed sex appeal as she donned a fitted dress during her appearance on ITV daytime show This Morning.

During her six-year break from EastEnders from 2001 until 2006, the actress decided to focus on her health, enlisting her EastEnders co-star Charlie Brooks and Natalie Cassidy's trainer to shed pounds.

The actress dropped a staggering two stone and dropped four dress sizes.

Dancing queen

In 2007, Letitia participated in the fifth series of the BBC' Strictly Come Dancing.

She was partnered with the professional dancer, Darren Bennett and they were voted out in the quarter-finals, one week before the semi-final.

Commenting on her experience, she said "It's been incredible.

"I've got to thank [Darren Bennett] for all his patience, hard work, all the injuries. It's been wonderful.'

Letitia donned an off-the-shoulder turquoise gown for her promotional snaps for Strictly which showed off her curves in all the right places.

Sunglasses chic

Letitia attended the British Soap Awards back in 2001 wearing a plunging black dress.

She left her trademark blonde tresses in loose waves and completed her look with a pair of heels.

The soap icon wore a pair of red sunglasses as she posed up a storm for the camera ahead of the glitzy bash.

Letitia and the cast of EastEnders took home the Best British Soap award at the ceremony.

EastEnders airs Monday to Thursday on BBC One at 7.30pm
