The actress – who made her first EastEnders appearance in 1999 – is keen to follow in the footsteps of Gwyneth Paltrow, who owns lifestyle brand Goop.

‘Each toy will have a different name, and one option mooted was The Butcher after her EastEnders character.

The actress previously admitted she’s relished working in theatre since leaving the BBC soap.

She added: ‘Even though on the first night, I would literally rather be run over by a bus than go out there. I’m terrified but it’s all right, you have to work with it.’
