Driving ban for actress Louisa Lytton

Former EastEnders star Louisa Lytton has vowed to ‘move on’ with her life after she was given a 14-month driving ban and fined for drink-driving.

The 22-year-old, who also starred in The Bill, was fined £350 at City of Westminster Magistrates Court on Friday, and ordered to pay £85 costs.

The driving ban will be reduced by three months if she completes the Secretary of State-approved course.

“She is very remorseful about this, and will move on,” her manager Darren Dixon later said. “She will live and learn from it.

“She will take the course and get on with it, she wasn’t hiding from it.

“She only had one drink and was just over the limit, but she knows that the law is the law, she understands the severity of it, and that you can’t drink and drive.

Louisa first found fame in 2005 when she joined the cast of EastEnders as Ruby Allen, the spoilt daughter of gangster Johnny Allen (Billy Murray).

She left the soap in November 2006 and went on to play PC Beth Green in The Bill from 2007-2009.

She was also a contestant in the 2006 series of Strictly Come Dancing.
