Tamzin Outhwaite reveals who saved her after Tom Ellis divorce Kingdom Showbiz


The EastEnders favourite opened up about adjusting to life after divorcing actor Tom Ellis and she’s
never been ‘happier’. Tamzin, 47, was married to the Lucifer star for eight years before they called time on their relationship
in 2008 and says her kids with the 39 year old, Florence and Marnie, have been a huge support thanks
to their very strong bond. She told the Radio Times: ‘I’m so happy. In fact, I’m happier now than I’ve been in a very long
time. ‘I’m extremely proud of myself and my girls because we have an extra-special bond. We’re in a pretty
amazing place. ‘Which is something I wouldn’t have been able to say three years ago.’ After nearly 16 years away, Tamzin
is returning to Walford as feisty Mel Owen and previously it was her daughters who convinced her to
head back to Albert Square. She said: ‘When I ask my kids’ advice – my eldest especially – I say: ‘I have got this job and I don’t
know if I should do it?’ Her words are always: ‘Can you come home at night?’ ‘She basically doesn’t really ask what it’s about and if I can come home at night then she says: ‘I
think you should do it.’ I was doing a lot of theatre before.’ And she’s excited to delve back into the character, who she teased is more ‘damaged’ than before. She added to Radio Times: ‘She’s more damaged than when she left, mainly because of the experiences
she’s had. ‘Mel had become quite dark by the end, but I don’t think she would have ended up that way had it not
been for Steve Owen. ‘So I don’t think she’s going to be letting any man rule her this time around.’
