EastEnders Elaine Jordan looks fit and healthy on a run years after leaving soap

Elaine Jordan looked fantastic as the former soap star was seen out for a run with her husband.

The former EastEnders star, 53, looked fit and healthy as she seen going for a jog while listening to music.

Jordan and her ex-BBC technician hubby Peter Manuel were seen exercising in North London, the pair enjoying some fresh air amid the current lockdown.

Elaine, who played Kat Slater's sister Lynne Hobbs in the BBC soap, rocked some black leggings and a grey and black workout jacket as she worked out on the streets of London.

Peter jogged along wearing shorts, a T-shirt and jacket as he enjoyed the jogging session with his wife.

Elaine was sadly fired from EastEnders in 2004 after suffering with alcoholism.

She joined the soap in 2000, and had some major storylines during her time on the show set in Albert Square, including her romance with Gary.

The star was banned from the soap, and a source said at the time: "It was decided to make the changes after she had a few problems with drinking. It has been done to help her rather than to punish her."

She left the soap after her character Lynne suffered a miscarriage when a rollercoaster ride crashed, leading her to divorce Garry and start afresh out of Albert Square.

Elaine's career didn't end there however, as she went on to star in sitcom Gimme Gimme Gimme as main character Linda's sister Sugar Walls.

She was also part of the celebrity lineup for I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2005, but unfortunately had to leave the reality show after passing out twice during day one.

The actress went through a series of tragedies throughout her life as her mum had died from suicide just months before she went into the jungle, and Elaine suffered more heartache months later when her one-year-old son passed away.

James, who she shared with her husband Peter, died after having surgery for diaphragmatic hernia.

Her baby passed away three days after Elaine married his dad, Peter.

She also suffered a miscarriage back in 2007, before her father Garrett died aged 72 a year later.

It looks like Elaine has turned her life around, as she was seen focusing on her fitness by exercising with Peter.
