Louisa Lytton admits she wants to bid on Lacey Turner’s clothes as she supports OK!’s Closet Clear Out campaign

Louisa Lytton has admitted she has her eye on items from Lacey Turner's wardrobe as she supports OK!'s Closet Clear Out campaign.

The 31 year old has donated her own items to our campaign, which is raising money for domestic abuse charity Refuge, but might be filling up her closet and soon as she cleared it out.

EastEnders star Louisa discussed our fundraiser — which has been backed by Good Morning Britain and Lorraine — with Vanessa Feltz on her BBC Radio London show.

Speaking about the ongoing lockdown, the Ruby Allen actress said: "We are being asked to stay home which is why we should feel safe and protected but that's just simply not the case for everyone which is awful.

"To some people, being told to stay at home is probably the worst thing that they've heard and they feel trapped.

"So just to be involved in something that can help in a small way is brilliant, and it's amazing what OK! magazine have done with Refuge and eBay, and obviously Dame Helen Mirren is involved so it's amazing really."

Discussing the items she has donated to the effort, Louisa said: "I have donated a bag which was the first thing that I ever bought with my first pay cheque from EastEnders which was 15 years ago.

"It's a satchel bag, a green satchel. I guess back then they must have just become popular at the time. It was the first thing I bought so I've put that in, and the dress I wore for my 30th birthday.

"It's funny because I actually did a closet clear out and I've given lots of things but it was finding things that I guess actually mean things to you rather than just 'here's a t-shirt', so it was fun. The whole point is to spur others on to do the same and for them to donate.

"Lots of us have got time on our hands at the moment and having a clear out of your wardrobe actually helps. It helped me sort of mentally clear out a little bit which is nice."

But Louisa did admit that she may be filling up her closet just as quickly as she cleared it out, keeping an eye on some of her EastEnder co-star Lacey Turner's wardrobe.

She added: "Lacey Turner's also involved who's obviously one of my friends from EastEnders and I'm always eyeing up her wardrobe anyway so I'll probably have a little purchase of one of hers."
