Natalie Cassidy was almost unrecognisable from her on-screen persona Sonia Fowler as she got glammed up for the TV Choice Awards on Monday night.

The EastEnders actress, 40, shared the stunning snap to her social media before heading to the awards ceremony in London with her co-stars.

Natalie, who was wearing a crisp white shirt with a metallic silver skirt, opted for a full face of make-up with a bouncy blown out hairstyle.

She first played the role of Sonia in the soap opera in December 1993, but Natalie’s off-screen look is world’s away from her frumpy character.

The soap star joked that the transformation ‘took a few hours’ and shared her fears that her outfit would be creased by the time she arrived at the venue.

She wrote in the caption: ‘Ready for the TV choice awards. Only took a few hours. @sophevs_1991 to be fair we didn’t stop talking and laughing. 

‘Thank you as always for my make-up and hair. Outfit with help from @beffyswardrobe. Although when I get out the cab and all my shirt isn’t tucked and all creased the photos will look gorge.’

Once she arrived at the bash, Natalie posed up a storm for the cameras in her stylish look, which she had teamed with a pair of white heeled boots. 

The TV Choice Awards took place at The London Hilton on Park Lane.

The award ceremony was not broadcast live, but instead the winners were announced online by TV Choice.

Happy Valley and Netflix‘s Heartstopper were the frontrunners at the awards, both receiving three nominations each.

And Happy Valley had a double win after its final series aired last year.

The show was named the winner of the Best Drama Series gong after going up against Heartstopper on Netflix, Channel 5‘s All Creatures Great and Small, and ITV1’s Vera.

Sarah Lancashire, 59, who played Catherine Cawood, won the Best Actress prize.
