Actress loves a spot of bargain shopping

Actress Louisa Lytton may get to wear £2,000 dresses for her stint on Strictly Come Dancing but she’s a Primark girl at heart.

The 17-year-old star, who shot to fame as Ruby Allen in EastEnders, is currently wowing viewers with her performances in the Saturday night show.

But she claims she hasn’t let fame go to her head.

‘The dresses are amazing,’ she tells The Daily Mirror. ‘But we don’t get to keep them. They’re out of my league – they cost about £2,000 – and I’d rather go to Primark anyway.’

Louisa admits that she was gutted to leave Albert Square and would have stayed if she’s been given the choice.

‘Ruby wasn’t killed off so there’s always a chance she could come back,’ she says. ‘I hope so.’
