EASTENDERS star Natalie Cassidy has revealed her daughter Joanie has been rushed to hospital with a broken arm.

The 37-year-old actress, who plays nurse Sonia Fowler in the soap, posted a picture of them together after the op as she thanked NHS staff.

Little Joanie, four, was seen with her arm bandaged up, cuddling her mum – and a toy that was wearing a tiny facemask.

Natalie wrote a tribute to the hard-working staff at the hospital in Harlow, Essex calling them "absolutely incredible".

She posted: "I just wanted to thank all the staff at Princess Alexandra Hospital for looking after my little girl these last two days.

"She’s broken her arm and had to have a little operation to fix it. Every member of staff were absolutely incredible and looked after Joanie and me in every way possible.

"Home now. Wanted to say if you need to go to hospital for anything PLEASE go – they are the best places when you really need them."

Joanie is her child with EastEnders cameraman fiancé, Marc Humphreys.

She also had an older daughter, ten-year-old Eliza, with ex Adam Cottrell.

Natalie received lots of comments from her co-stars wishing Joanie well.

Kellie Bright, who plays Linda, wrote: "Oh my goodness!!! Give Joanie a squeeze from me ❤️❤️."

Ruby Allen actress Louisa Lytton replied: "Oh my little darling ❤️❤️ give her kisses x."

Jay Brown star Jamie Borthwick referenced Only Fools and Horses character Delboy's mum, writing: "Ohhh Joan Mavis trotter what you done 🤦‍♂️."
