EastEnders star Jessie Wallace has been making the most of her maternity leave by taking baby Tallulah Lilac for a stroll in London. Wrapped up warm in a pink hat and trendy olive coat, the actress also took her pet pooch along for their day out.

Tallulah, who was born two months ago in the capital's exclusive Portland Hospital, was likewise looking stylish in a fluffy one-piece and cerise hat. And she appeared especially comfy in her eye-catching designer papoose with colour coordinated pink straps.

Although the actress had been expected to return to the Square in March, there have been rumours that the entire Slater family may be for the axe. It remains to be seen whether Jessie's character, fiery Queen Vic barmaid Kat, survives the current batch of departures.
