Emmerdale Maya Stepney actress Louisa Clein stuns fans with 'gorgeous' make-up free selfie
Emmerdale actress Louisa Clein has been updating fans from her hotel isolation - where a dramatic saga unfolded.
The actress, who played Maya Stepney on the ITV soap, shared a selfie on Instagram ahead of her last day in quarantine.
In a make-up free selfie, she posted on Instagram a picture with the caption: "This is what day 6 of isolation looks like. A bit blurry and rather soggy. I've been running everyday to keep me from constantly eating and I must admit I kinda like it!!
"The adventures begin tomorrow and the constant eating will reassuringly resume."
But there was even drama in a hotel room for the soap star as she revealed housekeeping had accidentally thrown away her knitting needle - a lifeline during boring days in lockdown.
Louisa said: "In the meantime, housekeeping mistook my knitting needle for a chopstick and chucked it so I have no idea what I will do for the rest of the day."

Others commented on her fresh-faced look, with one fan posting: "Looking so beautiful and gorgeous as always", before another added: "Still stunning as ever."
And the story had a happy ending.
Hours later, Louisa posted another photo of a her knitting project back underway with the message: "The best service!!!! Room service delivery of knitting needles!! The creation can continue!"
