Tilly, 22, showcased her new character Helen in a photo on Instagram today and stunned in the photo, revealing she has seriously ramped up the sex appeal to play a contestant on fictional show Love or Lust.

Slipping into a tight pink dress, the star captioned her post: “@bbcthree Make Me Famous is coming to @bbciplayer on 17th June & @bbcone on 25th June #MakeMeFamous”

Her pals quickly congratulated her, and ex EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa raved: “Yes please!”

Maisie Smith, who plays Tiffany Butcher in the soap, wrote: “JEEEZUS”

The bombshell plays reality TV show contestant Helen who becomes entwined with former contestants Billy and Michelle (Emma Rigby).

Reggie Yates‘ new drama signed Grantchester’s Tom Brittney in the lead role of Billy, a former contestant on fictional reality show Love or Lust and Amanda Abbington as Billy’s mum.

The show will focus on the impact money and fame has on their mental health as they come to terms with suicide, drug use and new relationships.

Reggie, 36, told The Guardian: “I don’t think we’ll know for maybe another five or 10 years how much this is affecting, not just the people that are going through the experience, but the audience.

“Lots of young and impressionable people watch these types of shows. There has to be an effect.”

Tilly had played Louise since 2016 and is the fourth actress to take on the role.

Louise has starred in several of the soap’s biggest storylines since Tilly took on the role including her relationship with cheating Keanu Taylor.

However, the 22-year-old star kept coy on her new role.

Tilly told HOAR Online: “I have loved playing Louise Mitchell over these past few years, and I feel honoured to have been part of such an iconic show.

“Working with our incredible cast and crew has been a joy and I shall miss my EastEnders family greatly.”

Make Me Famous will premiere at 9pm on BBC Three, June 17th.
