Actress Lorraine Stanley says her 'EastEnders' counterpart Karen Taylor won't last long as a cleaner in Ian Beale's restaurant

Lorraine Stanley has hinted her 'EastEnders' character Karen Taylor will be sacked from Beales restaurant soon.

The Walford newcomer wangled herself a job as a cleaner in Ian Beale's diner after befriending his wife Jane but the actress said Karen turns into his "worst nightmare" as she natters all-day-long.

The 40-year-old actress said: "Karen just stands there with her mop and bucket and chats while Ian is trying to get on with work - she's his worst nightmare! And she really doesn't like being told what to do - so she might not last long!"

Though she insisted Karen is "a strong woman who won't take any crap," Lorraine also teased that the mother-of-five - who viewers saw punch Sharon last week - will become "vulnerable" in future plot lines.

She added to Inside Soap: "You'll see coming up, that Karen is trying her best and not getting anywhere. She's a single mum looking after all these children. And she's hit rock bottom. I know Keegan is a bit of a sod, but I think you'll see her children are actually good kids and that's a testament to Karen. That's when we'll really see her vulnerable side. If I play it right!"

Meanwhile, Lorraine loves her new role because it allows her the time to look after her 18-month-old daughter.

She said: "It's the perfect job for a mother because I'm not in work every day and when I am, my daughter goes to nursery.

"I was at home with my little girl every day for 18 months, so it's nice to go out, buy nappies and get the bread in."
