Lord have Mercy! Mercy from Eastenders, dare I say it, actually look goods!  The soap star played by Bunmi Mojekwu was spotted posing on the red carpet at the 2011 British Soap Awards in Manchester.

We have to say this is the best we’ve ever seen her. We were getting so used to that awful red excuse-of- a -weave she wears on Eastenders we had lost all hope.

Her new short hairstyle suits her much better, and she gets bonus points for repping her Nigerian heritage by adding an African twist to her dress. Not really a fan of the shoes, but for Bunmi-I’ll let it slide.

Just goes to show that miracles do happen.

Pappzd verdict: Shake their hand
