Louisa Lytton may not have made it down the aisle yet due to the coronavirus pandemic, but she has made it over a new threshold after moving house.

The EastEnders' actress revealed that she and fiancé Ben Bhanvra have swapped their old flat for a new house together just weeks after they had to cancel their August Bank Holiday wedding.

Taking to Instagram the soap star, who plays Ruby Allen on the BBC programme, shared some sweet memories of their old home as well as a sneak peek at their new place.

Sat inside the back of a moving van with her arm around Ben, Louisa shared the candid picture of her laughing after the busy day of packing her things up.

"Still unpacking i honestly don’t know how all of that stuff fit in our little flat. I feel so overwhelmed (in a good way) my flat was my baby, it looked after us during lock down, it allowed me and the girls (@alexlouizebird @mariannaneo )to fall in drunk after nights out, have nights in with 3BlindMice (@cartierfraseriheacho @mafromusic)

"It even had a space in the bed for @natashastonemua for a whole month whilst she held my hand and supplied lots of wine through a break up.

She then finished with a question to her followers: "It was mine and @bennnyy__ first home. Goodbye wedding (for now) Hello house Shall i update you on the progress or are we bored of home accounts?!"

Louisa also shared a look at a little bit more of home including one corner that she deemed was tidy enough to appear on Instagram.

"Thanks for the comments, I’ll update as I go (i’m nervous as I’m really not good at this gram stuff) The only corner acceptable enough to post right now #rattanfurniture #rattantable #newhome #greathomestaketime #glowupmypad"

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the soap star then shared a clip of herself wandering through her home and a peek at their back garden.

Unfortunately for Louisa a neighbour's cat had taken a shine to a pink chair: "To anyone that knows me I am highly allergic to cats…"

Speaking at the cat as it peered through the window at her: "What are you doing on my chair?! I have a cat next door! It just sat on my little chair!"

She then joked about her garden furniture as she panned around to reveal a large slate grey patio area and untrimmed grass.

Louisa took a break from moving in to bask in the sun on her tiny pink chair, before asking her followers about how to paint her house as she tested out a white colour.

They later decided they would use a primer to get rid of the blue walls that were already there for the neutral tone, sharing a further look at one of the front rooms as Ben got stuck in to the DIY.

The engaged couple's house move comes just weeks after they had to postpone their summer nuptials because of the COVID-19 rules.

Talking to OK! Magazine, Louisa said she and Ben had organised a beautiful ceremony but made the heartbreaking decision to delay their wedding until summer 2021.

“It feels strange to think we should have been getting married this month and now we’re not," Louisa said.

"It was emotional making the decision to postpone it because you put all this work and effort into something, you build it all up in your head, and then suddenly it’s not happening for ages."

Ben, who is also an actor, added: "It was stressful deciding what to do, but to be honest, once we actually made the decision to rearrange the date, it took the pressure off a bit.

"We’re looking to move from our flat to a house at the moment, so maybe moving and getting married at the same time would have been too much!"
