Alice's sister Ella Nokes was clearly proud of her sibling for appearing on the epic fantasy show, which is currently in its eighth and final series.

She wrote on Instagram: "Catch my beaut sister for 0.2 secs in this weeks GAME OF THRONES (sic)"

Alice appeared in "EastEnders" in August 2016 as Courtney returned to Albert Square amid a crisis for her infamous Walford family as she turned up to meet Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) in place of her father.

Alice admitted her alter-ego is "feisty" and likes to party, but also has a "vulnerable" side to her.

She said at the time: "I think Courtney is a very similar character to myself. She's quite feisty and definitely has the Mitchell side in her.

"She's not a mean girl, she's not malicious. She's very kind-hearted and very much like her mum, Tiffany.

"I think she's vulnerable but in an endearing way. However, Courtney is confident and likes a party!"

Before her 2016 appearance, Courtney was last seen in Albert Square in 2006 when she was portrayed by Megan Jossa, the cousin of Jacqueline Jossa who previously played Lauren Branning in the BBC One soap.
