The former EastEnders star is living the life away from Albert Square these days...

While most soap stars dream of heading to Hollywood, many rarely do.

Except former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer in this case, who is more than living the American dream in California.

After bidding goodbye to Albert Square last September in a storyline that saw her move to Milton Keynes, in real life Patsy packed her bags and moved over to Malibu instead.

Where she now spends her days sunbathing by her swimming pool, snapping pictures of stunning sunsets and bonding on the beach with her girlfriends.

And she’s looking better than ever while doing so.

After getting a little click-happy while lurking Patsy’s new life in the sun on social media, you have to check out how picture perfect it all actually is.

Warning: you may experience severe jealousy

We’re not sure who exactly Patsy’s squad are, but we’d very much like to move over to Malibu and join them for these sunsets on the beach.

Not only does she have her own pool, but a lemon tree too? That’s it, we’re officially jealous.

If you’ve forgot why Patsy decided to leave the soap, a spokesperson for the star revealed at the time: ‘Patsy is really sad to be leaving the show as she loves playing Bianca and working with executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins but she knows it’s the right decision at this time in her life.’
