The One Show viewers floored by EastEnders' Michelle Collins' real age | The Sun

MICHELLE Collins reprised her role as Cindy Beale last week, sending fans into a frenzy.

But during an appearance on The One Show, the EastEnders star blew viewers away with her mesmerizing looks.

The 61-year-old actress headed back to Walford after more than two decades away as Cindy Beale was revealed to have been alive and well all along.

An iconic villainess, the blonde bombshell was seen again for the first time earlier this year and finally returned to Albert Square this week.

Her comeback has had explosive consequences so far as she not only had a tense altercation with her mother-in-law Kathy Beale (portrayed by Gillian Taylforth) but also had to come clean about her true identity to former husband George Knight (Colin Salmon).

Last night's instalment of the London-based drama ended with Cindy coming face to face with her daughter Anna in The Queen Vic as the latter celebrated her 21st birthday.

Michelle talked all things EastEnders to presenters Angelica Bell and Roman Kemp – but soap and TV fans were too distracted by her ageless appearance.

Many of them took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to voice their amazement.

The Hackney star celebrated her 61st birthday on May 28, 2023, with friends and family during a last-minute party, as she revealed on her Instagram account at the time.

During her appearance on The One Show, she revealed that one member of her close circle bagged a role on the long-running show with her help.

Michelle recalled that host Roman's father Martin Kemp portrayed Steve Owen in EastEnders but was killed off in a car explosion.
