EastEnders star Gurlaine Kaur Garcha has been making the most of the cold weather – by posing in her bikini on Instagram.
The BBC actress – best known as Albert Square’s resident medic Ash Panesar – hasn’t stripped off in our icy temperatures though, she’s jetted off to Dubai instead.
Gurlaine, 28, looked a far cry from joggers and a sweatshirt loving Ash as she posed for fans on her Instagram account in the minuscule swimwear.
The stunning soap star showed off her enviable toned figure as she confidently posed in a cream knitted bikini while lapping up the sunshine in Dubai.
Wearing co-ordinating cream-rimmed sunglasses and a gold necklace personalised with her name she oozed glamour as she pointed one leg outwards for the snap, the golden sand and city skyline flowing behind her.
Ash has most recently been seen in EastEnders embroiled in a racism row with cab driver Harvey.
The hospital doctor was upset when she stepped into his cab following a bad day at work where a racist patient refused to be treated by her because of her skin colour.
Ash got upset when Harvey ignorantly used the phrase “you lot are all the same”, while referring to young people, causing her to become upset.
The pair argued causing Harvey to lose his job, but Ash eventually admitted feeling she may have flown off the handle when Harvey apologised for his actions and convinced Kat to give him his job back.
The young doctor is now set to head into further controversy when she prescribes strong painkillers for Stacey Slater’s new wife Eve Unwin.
The paroled criminal uses her charm to woo Ash, who is instantly smitten by her when she convinces her to provide the medication after collapsing at the Minute Mart and claiming to have a historical back injury.
Her violent past already has Ash’s mum Suki Panesar on the defensive, especially after their recent clash over the Slater’s tenancy agreement.
But Ash seems unfazed by the past and wants to get to know more about Eve.
EastEnders continues Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
