Despite having very positive things to say about the BBC serial drama, Tamzin, 49, can't bring herself to watch it anymore.
She told Entertainment Daily: "I’ve always been a massive EastEnders fan but when you’ve been in it, it’s difficult to go back and watch it.
"You go from being a fan to knowing the secrets so it’s a bit trickier."
However, she does miss working on the show and being with the crew and her former co-stars.
She added: "I still speak to Scott Maslen (Jack Branning), Jake Wood (Max Branning) and Lucy Benjamin (Lisa Fowler)", we all keep in touch on social media.
"I do miss them. But I really enjoy having my life back at the same time."
The former Albert Square star weighed in on the soap's domestic abuse storyline, which saw Gray tragically murder his wife Chantelle after tormenting her for months.
Outhwaite said: "I think soaps have a responsibility to cover everything in society. They’ve always done it well at EastEnders."
She had high praise for actress Jessica Plummer, who portrayed the character of Chantelle from March 2019 to September 2020.
Tamzin gushed: I’ve always been a massive EastEnders fan and I think she’s a lovely actress and a really lovely girl.
"I bet she goes on to great things, I bet she does."
