Tamzin Outhwaite's younger boyfriend Tom Child makes her feel "appreciated" and "loved".

The 48-year-old actress - who portrays Mel Owen on "EastEnders" - is very happy with the fitness instructor and admitted working out with him helps her feel younger than her years.

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, Tamzin said: "I don't feel 48, but I'd love it if I could drink a magic potion to hold back the years. My late mother always looked great for her years, so I hope I've inherited her genes. It helps that Tom "s a fitness Instructor: He'll say: "You'll need to sweat today".

"We've only been together a year and three months or something. It's a lovely position to be in, to be appreciated and loved. He makes me very happy."

Tamzin - who reprised her role as Mel in 2018 after initially portraying the character from 1998 to 2002 - recently admitted that her two daughters, Marnie, six, and Florence, 10, are sometimes allowed to tune in to the BBC One show.

She said: "When I'm not carrying a gun or a knife, they can watch it. Occasionally, if it's fun, they can watch it.

"They'd rather watch this with us having a chat being ourselves, obviously. And they'd rather watch "Dancing on Ice"."

The actress also revealed she relished shooting the intense scenes in which she helped her son - who killed her cheating husband Ray Kelly - cover up his murder by burying the dead body.

Tamzin admitted she felt like she was in a "horror" movie.

She said: "I felt like I was in a horror because there are guns and the lighting is from above and it's really pitch-back and so you feel like you are in a completely different job, there's catering in your trailer, it's lovely!"
