'Life Before Loose': Nadia opens up about family and career in emotional interview
To celebrate our upcoming 20th anniversary, we're looking back at 'Life Before Loose' with the show's legendary panelists.
She's been with us from the very start, so where better to begin than with the wonderful Nadia Sawalha.
In an emotional interview, Nadia looked back at her childhood and relationship with her family. She explained the tremendous pride in her Arabic roots and reminisced about life as a young actress trying to hit the big time.
The former EastEnders star also spoke about her "volatile" relationship with sister Julia who she described as being "totally amazing."
Nadia went on to open up about losing her first husband Justin Mildwater, who tragically took his life in 1997.
Showbiz and of course a spot of Albert Square chat were also topics of discussion in the first of a series of 'Life Before Loose' interviews.
