Hero ex-EastEnders star Tamzin Outhwaite saved three children from drowning at birthday pool party

TAMZIN Outhwaite saved three children from drowning at a birthday pool party.

The ex-EastEnders actress jumped in fully clothed when the under-tens got into difficulty.

Tamzin, 50, plucked the trio from the pool as screams rang out.

One witness said: “Tamzin is a hero. She leapt into the water without hesitation. It was very dramatic.”

The star, who played Melanie Healy, was at a seventh birthday bash at a pal’s outdoor pool.

She was standing poolside and did not even pause to put down her mobile before diving in.

The onlooker told The Sun: “Without a second’s doubt she entered the pool and plucked the youngest child to safety, before grabbing the other two.

“She reacted so fast that nobody else had even gone into the water by the time they were all safe.

“There were a couple of doctors at the party who checked the kids were OK and gave them a clean bill of health. But it left many people shaken.”

Tamzin was congratulated and thanked by other grateful parents at the bash in North London on June 5.

The source said: “Tamzin really is a super-star.

"She didn’t want a fuss, which is why she’s so popular. She’s so down-to-earth.

“But it doesn’t bear thinking about what might have happened had she not spotted the kids in trouble.

“Everyone should know just what a true legend she really is.”

Tamzin, who also starred in Hotel Babylon and New Tricks, told The Sun earlier this year how she has never been happier than she is now with toyboy documentary-maker Tom Child, 30.

They met in 2017 at a yoga class.

She has two daughters — Flora, 12, and eight-year-old Marnie — from her marriage to Miranda star Tom Ellis, 42.

They wed in 2006 but divorced in 2014.
