EastEnders original Dotty Cotton Molly Conlin stuns fans with bikini selfie in the heatwave
EASTENDERS’ original Dotty Cotton actress Molly Conlin today stunned fans with a bikini selfie in the heatwave.
The former soap star, 19, looked incredible in a butterfly two-piece as she soaked up the last of the British summer sunshine.
Since leaving EastEnders, Molly has become an Instagram star with 24,000 followers.
She regularly posts sexy selfies, and today was no different.
Taking to Instagram she posted two pics of herself in the garden enjoying the sun.
She wrote next to one of the snaps: “I like butterfly’s if you haven’t noticed already 🦋”
Her followers were quick to show their appreciation with one commenting: “Just amazing.”
While this one said: “Beautiful xx”
Another wrote: “On another level.”
Molly shot to fame playing Dotty Cotton, who was the daughter of villain Nick Cotton and granddaughter of Dot.
The actress was just seven when she first appeared on the show in 2008.
Speaking about her casting at the time, Molly told Daily Gazette: “I’m really excited about it because I have always wanted to be in EastEnders.”
She left the show in 2010, and last year revealed how said she was “very upset” the show recast her role.
Molly said she was approached by soap bosses over the return of her character, but only to explain why she wasn’t being brought back.
She exclusively told The Sun Online: “They did approach me, unfortunately they wanted the new Dotty to go back and appear a lot older and be played by someone in their 20s.
“Of course I would have loved to have returned to EastEnders, but I believe everything happens for a reason.”
Instead, actress Milly Zero now plays the role as Dotty.
Meanwhile, earlier this summer Molly found herself back in the headlines.
It was after she revealed how her family home was raided by robbers wielding knifes.
