EastEnders fans couldn’t believe their eyes as Kacey Ainsworth showed off her new look as she prepares to return to our screens.
They had to do a double take as the actress now looks totally unrecognisable 14 years after leaving the BBC soap.
Kacey, who played tormented Little Mo Slater on the Square, showed off her striking new hair colour on the set of The Mallorca Files.
Fans were stunned by by how she looks now after a tweet showed off the 52 year old’s sensational new style.
“Lovely morning on set #mallorcafiles with the glowingly talented @kaceyainsworth and writer @timwhitnall,” the tweet read.

Kacey responded to her co-star’s snap: “Look at that fake tan!”
She is now back on set after testing positive for coronavirus in December.
Keeping everyone up to date, she wrote: “After years in the business my timing is usually impeccable, seen my dogs n the sheep, and my family only but I have tested positive for Covid on the day everyone can go out.
“Feel gutted but mostly feel Huge gratitude that I’m fine thinking of those not so fortunate.”
She sat down with Lorraine last month to talk about her big UK TV return.
The presenter asked her: “You look so great, so young and so well, what is your secret? It can’t just be a hair colour change!”
Kacey explained: “We sat down and we made her. She’s normally played like a seaside landlady, they didn’t want that at all, I wanted her to be really hard nosed.
“People thought ‘’keep it it looks amazing!’’ Some people think it looks like a wig!”
Kacey earned much praise for her role in EastEnders as she battled twisted husband Trevor Morgan.
She was involved in a harrowing domestic abuse storyline which ended with the bully dead at the Slaters.
Playing Little Mo from 2000-2006, she has been working hard since saying goodbye to the soap.
She added: “Well I have been really busy, it’s been a crazy kind of three years and I think a lot of it comes down to Grantchester being so successful in America.”
