Tamzin Outhwaite 'sad' to see Charlie Winter leave EastEnders

Tamzin Outhwaite is "very sad" Charlie Winter is leaving "EastEnders".

The 48-year-old actress - who portrays Mel Owen on the BBC One soap - is disappointed that her on-screen son, who plays Hunter Owen, is departing Albert Square, but she has tipped the 23-year-old actor to have a "very bright future".

She told Inside Soap magazine: "I feel very sad about not working with Charlie. He has a very bright future, so I'm excited for him as well."

Tamzin also hinted her alter-ego will find love again one day, following her disastrous and short-lived marriage to Ray Kelly (Sean Mahon), who was shot by Hunter just hours after he wed Mel.

She said: "Since coming back to the Square, she's not as shiny and new as the Mel we once knew. She's bitter, twisted and damaged - but that doesn't mean she hasn't got hope.

Tamzin reprised her role as Mel in 2018 after initially portraying the character from 1998 to 2002, and she is "having a great" time being back in Walford.
