Former EastEnders star Kacey Ainsworth looked sensational as she unveiled a smiling selfie after having her second Covid-19 vaccination.
The 52-year-old actress, who played Little Mo in the hit BBC soap until 2006, certainly appeared in high spirits as she expressed her relief at finally getting her second jab.
Taking to social media, the mum of two – who also tested positive for Covid-19 in December 2020 – showed off her cropped blonde hair as she proudly unveiled her vaccination sticker.
In her cheerful post, Kacey also thanked all the NHS volunteers who helped her get fully vaccinated as well as all the nurses.

"Only Gone and got myself double jabbed thank you to all the volunteers and nurses today @WarePriory and to everyone and anyone who has worked on developing the vaccine #covid#[email protected]," she wrote on Twitter.
Kacey's cheerful announcement was met with lots of joy as fans congratulated the star on finally getting the vaccination.
The actress has had quite the transformation since appearing on the EastEnders after she ditched her signature dark locks for a striking cropped blonde look.

Her gorgeous new look is worlds away from her Little Mo character who is better known for her long brunette tresses.
In 2020, Kacey explained that she had transformed her appearance to portray a character in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, but then decided to keep the blonde hair after she was inundated with compliments.
"The more I had it, the more people said to me 'don’t change it, it looks amazing!'" she recalled.

As well as firmly stepping away from her BBC soap character appearance, just last year Kacey also appeared to dash fans' hopes that she might one day return to EastEnders.
Kacey previously told that she gets asked "a million times" about a possible return for Little Mo.
"It's flattering because she was such a good character," Kacey told the Loose Women panel, before adding: "And I'm still in contact with all my screen sisters."

Since Kacey left EastEnders in 2006, the actress has appeared in The Bill as well as Casualty. She was later cast in Grantchester where she portrayed Cathy Keating.
