Former EastEnders star Jasmyn Banks – aka Alice Branning – is looking very different

Former EastEnders star Jasmyn Banks has a new look.

The actress, who played the notoriously straight-haired Alice Branning on the BBC One soap, posted a photo of herself to Instagram on Saturday (November 10), which revealed she had ditched the straighteners and embraced a much curlier hairdo.

“Curly [hair], don’t [care],” she said. “Loving my new barnet!”

“Cut of dreams and I’m throwing my damn straighteners away,” she added.

Jasmyn made her first appearance as Alice Branning — the long, lost daughter of Max and Jack’s brother Derek — in May 2012.

During her time on Walford Square, she worked as both a recruitment consultant and nanny. She also enjoyed a relationship with Anthony Moon (Matt Lapinskas) before her father Derek sent him packing.

Jasmyn herself ultimately left the soap in December 2013, after her character Alice stabbed Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd), before he was killed by Janine (Charlie Brooks).

After admitting to her crime, Alice ended up in prison, but she and Janine were found not guilty of murder following a trial, after the jury decided they stabbed Michael in self-defence.

Since leaving EastEnders, Jasmyn has gone on to star in a quite a few other BBC shows, including Citizen Khan, Call the Midwife, Doctors, and Hugh Grant’s recent Jeremy Thorpe biopic A Very English Scandal.

We can’t wait to see where Jasmyn, complete with her new curly hair style, goes next…

Eastenders airs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays on BBC One.
