EMMERDALE's Louisa Clein looks very different to Maya Stepney as she's trapped in isolation in a hotel
The 42-year-old actress said she had one more day left in quarantine before starting a new acting role.
She said: "This is what day 6 of isolation looks like. A bit blurry and rather soggy. I've been running everyday to keep me from constantly eating and I must admit I kinda like it!! The adventures begin tomorrow and the constant eating will reassuringly resume.
"In the meantime, housekeeping mistook my knitting needle for a chopstick and chucked it so i have no idea what I will do for the rest of the day. #onemoredaytofreedom#theadventurestartstomorrow"
The star – who was at the heart of the soap's most shocking storylines for over a year – played manipulator Maya Stepney in the soap.
The actress had an explosive run in Emmerdale starting in March 2018, when she started playing Maya as she descended into depravity.
The character split up with Dr Liam Cavanagh before getting into a relationship with Matthew Wolfenden's oblivious David Metcalfe.
She then groomed David's innocent son Jacob Gallagher, played by Dancing On Ice's Joe-Warren Plant, a role which bagged her an Inside Soap Award in 2019.
Louisa later explained that she refused to film some scenes, telling the Soap From the Box podcast: "Sometimes the writers would write something so simple.
"We would both go, ‘I don’t think that’s necessary, I don’t think we need to show that.’"
She added: “I think actually far more effective if we show less or if the words say more as opposed to the action."
Louisa left Emmerdale in 2019 after Maya’s affair with Jacob was discovered and she was arrested, suspended from her job and left the village.
She later returned in a pre-filmed segment where she abandoned her baby with her ex David Metcalfe.
