Louisa Lytton was meant to be jetting of to Italy, but she wasn't going to let a change in plans stopping her from getting away.

The EastEnders star, who is around seven months pregnant with her first child, enjoyed a staycation in the UK with her fiancé Ben Bhanvra over the weekend.

She took to her Instagram account to share some photos from the blissful babymoon in Kent.

Louisa, 32, looked incredible in a black and white gingham print sundress which showed off her growing baby bump.

In the snaps, the actress, who plays Ruby Allen in the BBC One soap, also donned a straw hat and posed with her adorable dog.

Her brunette locks were worn down and loose around her shoulders.

She sat barefoot on the grass and ran her fingers through her hair as she posed for the first picture.

In the second image, she stood on a patio as she held her hand on her face while looking away from the camera.

Louisa told her followers that she was happy to stay in the UK, and joked that she didn't have enough room for all the pasta she'd been planning to eat in Italy.

She captioned the snaps: "We were meant to be in Italy, but this weekend we managed to make it to Kent.

"To be honest there isn't much room left for all the pasta I was going there for.

"We have had such an amazing few days, we just needed to get out of the house and stop doing.

"t's crazy that the only way we know how to switch off is to run away, but it's worked a treat.

"A few days of walks, food and no doubt football tonight with my boys.

"Anyone else’s brain in overdrive in the #thirdtrimester?! My 4am notepad is my new best friend."

On his Stories, Ben documented her antics on the trip, and revealed that the couple had come across a snake while walking their dog.

Sharing a picture of the snake, he wrote "Dog walk took a turn" and tagged their location as "Snakeville".

Louisa also posted a picture of herself enjoying the sunshine, writing: "Bliss."

Later she shared a picture of Ben being chased by the dog, captioning it: "Wish me luck if this is another boy."

The soap star is due to give birth to her first child in September.

She announced she was pregnant in a Mother's Day post she shared on Instagram back in March, saying: "Dear Mum, If I am a fraction of the mother you are, I know I’ll be the best.

"You have held my hand for 32 years, you have taught me right from wrong, corrected my spelling, and helped me see the light at the end of every single tunn

"And now you will guide me to becoming a mummy. (Just try not to move yourself in or Ben might leave)."
