Former EastEnders star Hetti Bywater has jokingly advertised for a new beau on Instagram with some very 'picky' requirements.
The 25-year-old, who played Lucy Beale in the BBC One soap, had requested for her potential new flame to have blue eyes and be over 5ft10.
She posted the list on her Instagram page, titling it "Dating Ad" before encouraging her followers to send her a direct message if they matched the criteria.
Hetti's other preferences included working in film/television, being left wing, intelligent, kind and wearing glasses.
She hilariously wrote: “Who said I was picky?”
But after a surge of 'applications' flooded her direct messages on the app, Hetti was forced to take to her Instagram to set the record straight.
She said: "Obviously I was joking. I spoke about terms and conditions… I was clearly being sarcastic because I was talking about me being picky."
In later Instagram stories, the former soap star explained: "Okay so I feel like I need to make myself really clear about this."
She continued: "Please genuinely do not send me applications for dating it was a joke. Please don't send me your tick list of what I wrote.
"I'm sure you're really nice people. I know I instigated this but it was a joke and now I feel like I'm being pranked."
Hetti previously had a boyfriend called Josh but has recently been reported to be single.
The actress left EastEnders in 2014, when her character Lucy Beale was killed off in a huge 'whodunnit' plot to mark the soap's 30th anniversary.
Taking up much of the year, after her body was found on Walford Common, it was revealed that her brother Bobby was the one who gave the fatal blow, with a music box over the head in the living room.
Since then Hetti has made several appearances on Albert Square as Lucy's ghost.
