A former EastEnders actress has admitted racially aggravated harassment and common assault following an incident in Essex.

Katie Jarvis, who played Hayley Slater in the BBC soap from 2018 to 2019, had previously denied the two offences, which are said to have happened in Southend-on-Sea on 31 July, 2020.

However, the 30-year-old, of Rainham, east London, changed her pleas to guilty at Basildon Crown Court on Tuesday, which was due to be the first day of her trial.

Ex-EastEnders actor Katie Jarvis stands behind a pillar as she waits to enter Basildon Combined Court where she denies racially aggravated harassment, common assault and two counts of assault by beating. The four charges relate to an alleged incident in Southend on July 31 2020. Picture date: Tuesday April 19, 2022.

She has been bailed to return to the court on Wednesday to be sentenced.
