So Friday 19th January 2018 was the date the nation said goodbye to Eastenders character Abi Branning. There have been many characters in Eastenders over the past 33 years that can be considered iconic. Abi is not one of those. Played by Lorna Fitzgerald, Abi rose to become the very definition of IKONEC. Many found her blatantly annoying when first she joined the show but I feel in recent years she’s developed a following. Despite Lorna proving her acting abilities in live episodes, Abi was rarely given anything more than the cringiest shit to play out and it was all just hilarious enough. She went from constantly answering the door to a complete out and out psycho in just a few years.

This thread is dedicated to her memory and for all to share their face moments. For those unfamiliar with this ikon, here’s some of my fave moments.

So this is your first Lounge thread as a Lounge mod. Oh my! ohmy.gif

Don't watch EastEnders so didn't really know who Abi Branning was until this thread came up.

I've also been thinking something else....maybe this thread would have been more suited to being in the TV forum rather than The Lounge as it is about a TV show? wink.gif

I don’t know what’s better in this one: the neck brace, the thousand fags a day voice or Karen Taylor before she was Karen Taylor.
