The actress poured her heart out to followers on Instagram.

EastEnders star Tamzin Outhwaite has hinted she’s ‘brutally broken’ in an emotional new post on social media.

The actress, who plays Mel Owen in the BBC soap, uploaded the cryptic quote as her ex husband Tom Ellis gets ready to marry his new fiancé Meaghan.

The Instagram picture reads: “If you have been brutally broken but still have the courage to be gentle to other living beings, then you're a badass with a heart of an angel.”

Alongside the message, 48-year-old Tamzin simply wrote: “Amen”.

The pair faced a bitter divorce eight years later after he admitted to being unfaithful.

At the time, the 40-year-old revealed he’d had a “one-off fling” with his former Once Upon a Time co-star Emilie de Ravin while filming in America, reportedly leaving Tamzin ‘distraught’.
