EastEnders Priya Davdra looks unrecognisable as she enjoys exotic Dubai holiday

EastEnders star Priya Davdra is best known for playing Iqra in the BBC soap, but she looked unrecognisable on holiday in Dubai.

The soap actress, 34, has played Iqra Ahmed on Albert Square since joining the cast in February 2019.

However, she looked dramatically different from her on-screen character Iqra when she posed for a lush holiday snap on a balcony in Dubai.

Priya looked incredible as she sported a glamorous black dress that highlighted her long legs and show-stealing figure.

When we see her on EastEnders, Priya's character Iqra normally goes for more casual outfits that include jeans, jumpers and jackets.

However, Priya ensured all eyes would be on her as she dressed to the nines in the tight black dress which featured a see-through layer across her toned tummy.

Sharing two snaps, Priya looked to be in her element as she smiled for the camera with the Arabian city glowing in the background.

The actress completed her sensational evening look with a pair of chic high-heels.

In her first snap, Pria looked directly into the lens as she leaned on the glass balcony.

In the second photo, the star gazed into the distance dreamily.

Taking to Instagram, Priya wrote: "Dubai nights #dubailife #balcony #view"

Her famous friends and fans were left swooning at the star's new look, with many rushing to the comments section to compliment the star.

Her former EastEnders co-star Gurlaine Garcha, who played her on-screen girlfriend, wrote: “Gorgggg.”

Indian film actress Natasha Doshi commented: "Love this"

One fan wrote: "Beautiful"

A second agreed, posting:" Hot sauce" as they attached a fire emoji.

A third joined in, writing "You're so gorgeous xx"

A fourth added: "Absolutely stunning"

Priya's character Iqra, who became the first Muslim lesbian on the soap, has begun dating newcomer Mila Marwa.

Speaking about Iqra's new relationship, Priya said: "Mila is the first person that she had thought about dating since her break up with Ash, so she is excited and nervous,"

"Mila is an attractive girl, and I think with Iqra she is thinking this is my time to get over Ash and build something strong without any secrets. There were lots of secrets with Ash and it wasn’t a trustworthy relationship.

"She wants to take that leap and wants to be confident and in her decision… [Irqa] is living on The Square on her own and has realised that she deserves some happiness"
