EastEnders' Taylor family reunited as Lorraine Stanley meets up with Danny Walters and Toby Alexander-Smith

EASTENDERS' Lorraine Stanley reunited with co-stars Danny Walters and Toby Alexander-Smith – and left fans oozing with jealousy.

The actress, 44 – who plays Karen Taylor in the BBC soap – met up with her on-screen son and son-in-law for a bite to eat in Hertfordshire.

Karen and Toby still work together on EastEnders, but they decided to join forces once again with Danny more than a year after he left the hit show.

The trio decided to enjoy a meal at The George of Harpenden, located on Harpenden High Street in St Albans.

They captured their reunion with a lovely picture and Lorraine shared the snap on her Instagram.

She captioned the post: "So lovely to see @danny_walters (it’s been too long!) & @toby_alexander_smith for a lovely lunch at my fave pub @thegeorgeofharpenden ✌🏼❤️🤩😎X."

While many fans were over the moon about their reunion, others were envious that Lorraine got to enjoy a day out with the hunky actors.

One wrote: "Only a little jealous 😍😭."

A second said: "Some girls have all the luck! Just a tad jealous 😂."

Another said: "Wish I’d have been sat at that table too ❤️."

A third added: "You lucky bugger! 😂x."

A fourth chimed in: "Oh you lucky lady, this old lady has a crush on toby 😊😂 x ❤️."

Danny joined the Square in June 2017 as Lorraine's son Keanu Taylor, but had to flee in February 2020 after his affair with Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) was exposed to Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

Toby currently plays evil serial killer Gray Atkins, who has managed to kill three people since joining the square – including Karen Taylor's daughter and Keanu's half-sister Chantelle Atkins (Jessica Plummer).

Lorraine's character was left heartbroken when her 11-year-old stepdaughter Bailey Baker (Kara-Leah Fernandes) ran away from home last month.

The youngster thought that she was a financial burden on her family and wanted to leave so there was one less thing to worry about.

Karen, Bailey's dad Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths), their son Keegan Baker (Zack Morris) and Karen's daughter Bernadette Taylor (Clair Norris) searched the streets of Walford to try and find the school girl.

Earlier this week she was found by Denise Fox (Diane Parish) after she followed Jack Branning's daughter Amy Mitchell into the allotments where she was hiding.

Meanwhile Toby's alter-ego Gray is keeping a huge secret.

The solicitor brutally killed Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) last month after pushing him in front of a moving tube.

The market trader was fleeing the Square with girlfriend Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty), but Gray didn't want Kush to take her away from him.

Gray also killed Tina Carter (Luisa Bradshaw-White) after she found out that he was the person behind his wife Chantelle's murder.
