EastEnders Dirty Den’s daughter Vicki Fowler star unrecognisable 18 years later

EastEnders star Scarlett Alice Johnson looks worlds away from her character Vicki Fowler 18 years after she departed the BBC soap.

Vicki, who was the daughter of Dirty Den Watts and Michelle Fowler, was played by Samantha Leigh Martin as a youngster before Scarlett was recast as the role in 2003.

Despite her short stint on the square, mischievous Vicki was involved in plenty of major storylines, including following in her mother's footsteps and getting pregnant in her teens.

Unlike Michelle, Vicki decided to terminate her pregnancy, despite Spencer Moon wanting to raise the child and adopted sister Sharon offering her £10,000 to give her the baby to bring up as her own.

After nearly two years and 194 episodes, Vicki left the square in 2004 to join her mother in America and later reunited with Spencer in Australia where they now run a bar.

Nowadays, the actress looks completely different from her iconic character as she's ditched her signature pixie style hair cut in favour of longer locks which feature blonde highlights.

Since leaving Walford for good, Scarlett has enjoyed plenty of success amongst other projects away from the BBC soap.

The star nabbed roles in Channel 4 comedy series Pete Versus Life and Beaver Falls as well as UK films Adulthood and Panic Button.

Aside from her role in EastEnders, Scarlett is best known for her portrayal of Laura Derbyshire in the BBC Three sitcom Pramface – a role she played for three years.

The mum-of-one also took to the stage following her soap exit, appearing in productions including Radiant Vermin, The Angry Brigade, Slaves and Romeo and Juliet and plenty others.

While fans of medical drama series The Good Karma Hospital, will recognise Scarlett as Tommy McConnell who appeared in season three of the show.

Scarlett, who married her Pramface and Radiant Vermin co-star Sean Michael Verey in 2017, also has a surprise new career change as she now works as a drama teacher.
