Tamzin Outhwaite reveals she has started to ‘sell things’ to pay her mortgage as acting work dries up amid coronavirus pandemic
Tamzin Outhwaite has revealed she is selling her unwanted belongings so she is able to pay her mortgage as her industry struggles under the weight of the pandemic.
The former EastEnders actress, 50, revealed she has set up an online business where she sells clothing and home wear she has created or no longer needs.
Tamzin insisted she isn’t ‘snobby’ or bothered about how she makes money and is always looking for innovative ways to make cash.

Speaking on the Irregular B*tches podcast, she said ‘I’m in a situation at the moment where I’m starting to sell things. I’m about to set up a website for things that I’ve either created or bought and don’t need anymore. Home things, clothing.
‘I just think this is going to be probably how I’m going to pay my mortgage and exist for a while, until our industry comes back.
‘I’m not snobby or proud about what I do. I love a car boot sale, but everything is online. I’m thinking of ways of: ‘How do I do that now?’ I’m not proud. ‘Oh god, influencers make money, how do you go about doing that?’
‘I’m working out ways I could maybe do that. I’m in a decent situation. I can put my career on hold for a while and we will still eat.’

Elsewhere during the chat she also admitted that her own experience in the acting industry has put her off promoting it to her two kids.
Tazmin, who is mother to Florence, 12, and Marnie, eight, explained: ‘I worry about my own children, how their future is going to be because at the moment if one of them did want to act I would say: ‘No. Don’t go there at the moment.’
‘I worry about my theatre community that I grew up and trained with, the kids that are younger than me who are just coming out of college who have all these skills, and their skills won’t be sharpened and polished for a while.

‘I worry about my musical theatre family. Mates that I know are delivery driving, and I think: ‘Good on you.’ We’re all trying to earn our living at the moment, but I don’t know how long we can sustain it as a community.
‘The joy and the passion and everything I get from it is still there nut I can’t look on Twitter or Instagram and see a choir singing without crying at the moment.
‘It will come back and it will come back bigger and better, but there will be a period where it’s going to be sad.’
Tazmin shares her daughters with ex-husband Tom Ellis, who she divorced in 2014.
The mother-of-two has been dating boyfriend Tom Child, 28, for two years.
