Pam St Clement Is Out Of 'EastEnders' But Still In Leopardskin For Role Of Baddie In CBBC Drama 'Leonardo'

Pam St Clement has landed her first new role since EastEnders - and she'll still be in her trademark leopardskin.

The former EastEnder, 70, who donned leopard print coats when she played Albert Square's Pat Evans for 26 years, will also have a hook-hand in her new role, The Sun reported.

Pam St Clement will be back on the nation's screens in a CBBC drama

Pam left the BBC soap on New Year's Day when viewers saw her alter-ego die, with her family by her side, including the surprise arrival of David Wicks.

She will play a baddie, Mazzola, in an episode of CBBC kids drama Leonardo, about the adventures of the teenage painter.

The second series of the 15th-century drama, which is set in Florence, is broadcast later this month. Pics below...
