A BRADFORD-BORN Eastenders actress and musician is releasing her sixth album today.

'This Love' by Heather Peace, who has starred in the BBC soap as Stacey Slater's deranged wife Eve Unwin since last year, is out on Friday.

Heather attended St Joseph's Primary School in Little Horton and Manningham's St Joseph's Catholic College on her way to stardom.

The 46-year-old is best known for her hit role as Nikki Boston in the BBC school-based drama Waterloo Road from 2012 to 2014.

She has also featured in Emmerdale, London's Burning, and Lip Service in her 26-year career.

As well as acting, Heather is a talented musician that has already created five albums.

'Fairytales' (2012) and 'The Thin Line' (2014) both featured inside the UK charts at 43 and 56 respectively.

On April 1, Heather released a teaser single for her new album named 'Never Wanna Let It Go'.

The LGBTQI icon wrote, recorded and produced the upbeat retro disco 'This Love' from her attic during lockdown.

The album became her escape from the stress of life in the pandemic and it was inspired by the afternoon dances she shared with her wife, Ellie Dickinson, and three children in between home schooling.
