EastEnders star Luisa Bradshaw-White has paid tribute to her wife on Lesbian Visibility Week.
The actress – who portrayed Tina Carter in the BBC One soap – shared two pictures with wife Annette Yeo on social media to mark the occasion.
The first image was a selfie, with both Luisa and Annette smiling while standing next to a waterfall. The second featured the happy couple with their arms round one another, as they wore matching ‘I [heart emoji] my wife’ t-shirts.
‘Happy #lesbianvisibilityweek,’ Luisa, 45, wrote on Instagram. ‘Girls we are so special we get a WHOLE WEEK!
‘For those of you who don’t know…I have been with my wife @annette.yeofor 21 years.
‘We have two teenager daughters. We are a very happy family. Live your truth.’
The soap star recently opened up about her mental health.
‘I’ve suffered hugely with my mental health in the past,’ she said on social media. ‘I have bipolar disorder, and I’m in recovery from an eating disorder. I’ve been hospitalised for both, so it’s been pretty serious.
‘But I see both as huge blessings as they’ve forced me to make self care a big part of my life.
‘And I’ve been really well for a long time now, and it’s all because I work my happy muscle every day. I’ve learned so much along the way, and found so much healing.’
Luisa told her followers that she was ‘nervous’ ahead of posting the video, but revealed that she wants to help people who are struggling with their mental health.
‘It’s really important to me and I would love to be able to help people,’ Luisa added.
‘I’m really aware that a lot of the people who follow me on Instagram are EastEnders fans, which is really cool, but I wanted to create another account for things to do with self-care.
‘I have a website which is called LuluOm, which is mostly at the moment about Breathwork. But I want to create an account – an insta account – for people like me.’
