The actress, best known for her role as brass instrument playing Sonia Jackson in EastEnders, received the unflattering comparison from fiancé Marc Humphreys during a visit to sprawling department store Liberty London.
Taking to Instagram, Natalie, 37, revealed the freelance cameraman spotted a distinct likeness on one of the decoratively painted Les Ottomans plates displayed in store.

Captioning the snap, she wrote: ‘@camera_marc thought this was a lookylikey plate in @LibertyLondon. He thinks he’s hilarious. He’s not wrong to be fair.’
