Inside EastEnders Jessie Wallace’s home with quirky decor and outdoor art

Fans of BBC One soap EastEnders will recognise Jessie Wallace as the one and only Kat Slater.

The tough as nails character couldn't be further from the reality of the actress who plays her, with her not sharing a run down E20 home with extended family but actually living in a chic colourful pad filled with gorgeous decor.

Jessie, 49, lives in a stylish North London home with touches of pink, enviable decorations and attention stealing wallpapers that are hard to tear your eyes from.

She doesn't shy away from bold choices, with one piece of artwork showing Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz in front of a dazzling gold glitter background.

Her tributes to old icons littering her walls don't stop there, she has a photo of 70s star T-Rex with a blue neon light stretching across his body reading: "I danced myself right out the womb".

Jessie is clearly a fan of photographs with neon lights as another piece shows David Bowie with red neon lettering stating: "Ziggy played guitar".

The neon theme plays a role throughout a lot of her wall art, with another motivational sign reading "Exactly where you are supposed to be x" against a black background.

When not playing the feisty EastEnder, Jessie clearly has an eye for modern art.

The soap icon has tributes throughout her home to various stars and icons, including Ru Paul and the late Elvis Presley.

Jessie has spoken in the past about her crush on the King of Rock and Roll and has went so far as to get a tattoo of him on her forearm.

She doesn't stop with just the walls inside of her home when it comes to her appreciation for art though – the display continues outdoors.

She has a colourful, pop-art themed trio of prints showing Marilyn Monroe adding a touch of personality to a white brick wall.

With leaves dipping down across the art, the glamorous icon takes centre stage donning a low cut dress that appears in a different colour in each of the prints.

Jessie is proudly a huge fan of time in her garden, and the green thumbed actress has even boasted of her knack for growing vegetables.

She has made dinner from homegrown garlic and potatoes from her own vegetable patch.

Her expansive garden makes regular appearances on her social media as the star gives her fans an insight into her happy place.

The TV starlet can relax to learn her lines for the show by reclining in her outside blue hammock which has been installed in her back garden.

Jessie joined the cast of EastEnders in 2000 and has played Kat on and off for the past 21 years.

EastEnders continues on BBC One Tuesday at 7pm
