    EastEnders' Suki Panesar star has a lookalike sister who looks exactly like the soap starlet.

    Suki has been a matriarch on Albert Square since joining the soap in 2020, with the character at the helm of the Panesar family before her husband Nish returned after getting released from prison.

    Portrayed by Balvinder Sopal, who took on the role of Suki in January 2020, the character has become one of the soap's best-loved stars.

    With hard-hitting storylines exploring her personal life and family dynamics, and now her secret romance with Eve Unwin, Suki is a fan favourite since showing off her softer side in more recent storylines.

    But away from the chaos of Walford, E20, Balvinder lives a lovely life in Kent, with her often posing for sweet snaps with loved ones on Instagram.

    One loved one that Balvinder can often be seen posing with is her sister Manjeet Griffiths.

    Wishing her sister a happy birthday on December 20, 2021, Balvinder shared a string of unseen snaps of the sister duo posing up a storm, as well as some throwback photos.

    Looking very alike, the pair grinned for one snap which appeared to be taken at Christmas, with them both wearing cracker paper hats.

    In the caption, which celebrated her sister's 40th birthday, the Suki starlet wrote: "Happy 40th to this legend – my counsel, my strength, my power! The actual Godfather of our family. Here's to the start of anew decade for you!!"

    She went on: "All power and love to you beautiful. Keep rising, keep shining and keep being an inspiration to all of us, especially to those two beautiful girls. And… I'm glad I have to base 'some' parts of Suki Panesar on."

    Balvinder concluded with: "There is no bond like that of sisters."

    The comments section was then set alight with comments wishing Manjeet a happy birthday, as well as others that swooned over the pair being ageless.

    "You're both so beautiful," gushed one person, while another said: "How beautiful you both are."

    And a third said: "Two gorgeous queens," while a fourth added: "You both look beautiful and ever youthful."

    EastEnders airs Monday to Thursday on BBC One and BBC iPlayer at 7.30pm
