Hattie Tavernier was a character in EastEnders from Episode 565 (5th July 1990) to December 1993 followed by a brief appearance in Episode 947 (24th February 1994) which was her final appearance although she was played by a different actress who was not credited. The main actress to play Hattie was Michelle Gayle.


Hattie Tavernier had her pick of the men of Walford. Independent, well-balanced, music-loving Hattie looked up to her big brother Clyde and twin brother Lloyd for support.

When Hattie fell in love with chef Steve Elliot, she felt their relationship had a future - until her parents decided to leave the Square. She stayed with grandfather Jules and brother Clyde to make a go of things with her man.

Steve had other ideas and didn't want to be tied down, so he took a job as a chef on an ocean liner and did a runner. Hattie tracked him down and headed to Southampton in search of the love rat. They ended up in bed and she thought she'd managed to change his mind, but really it was bon voyage Hattie.

Devastated, Hattie returned to Walford alone. She left the Square bound for the bright lights of Norwich.


While visiting Norwich, Steve Elliot saw Hattie talking to another man in a street. He realised she was not returning to Walford and he decided to return to Walford alone. Hattie has not been seen or heard from since in Walford.
