EastEnders star Louisa Lytton shows off her baby bump for the first time as she grabs a bag of McCoys

EASTENDERS' Louisa Lytton has showed off her baby bump in public for the first time.

The 32-year-old star stopped off for a sandwich and a bag of McCoy's after revealing she has "not stopped eating junk food" since finding out she was pregnant on Boxing Day.

Stopping at a garage, the mum-to-be wore a flowing white T-shirt with a stylish pair of olive green jogging bottoms.

She finished off her off-duty look with a pair of trainers and wore her brunette hair loose.

Louisa is expecting her first child with fiancé Ben Bhanvra after coronavirus cancelled their wedding plans.

The couple got engaged whilst on holiday in the Maldives in May 2019 and in September 2020 moved into a new home together.

The soap star shared a picture of her baby bump on Instagram with fans last week.

Louisa affectionately held her tum as she paused for a snap while walking her adorable dog.

Louisa sweetly captioned the snap: "1st born & Unborn."

Her co-stars were quick to comment with Jessie Wallace writing: "Congratulations."

Natalie Cassidy said: "I love this 💗."

Milly Zero gushed: "OMG!! The baby has grown so much, Absolutely glowing."

Louisa, who plays Ruby Allen in the BBC One soap, revealed that she started trying for a baby after coronavirus cancelled her dream wedding.

She was devastated that she couldn't tie the knot and decided to start their family instead.

Speaking on Loose Women, Louisa said: "We've cancelled the wedding.

"I said to Ben, 'let's start trying because it doesn't look like the wedding is happening'.

"Then we fell pregnant and officially our wedding could go ahead but it's too late now.

"It's all gone out the window, but it's fine."

Louisa revealed the happy news she's expecting by showing off her growing baby bump to fans on Mother's Day.

The actress admitted she had enjoyed a boozy night on tequila the night before she found out she was pregnant.

"I'm through the first hurdle of the 12 weeks so I'm feeling a lot better now," said Louisa.

"We actually found out on Boxing Day which was really nice. I had been drinking tequila the night before, so…"

Louisa added: "I've not stopped eating junk food, constantly for 12 weeks. I've had dinner and then gone for a drive-thru. My appetite just went through the roof."
