And here I am..posing for pics that got me fired from Enders; MELISSA'S FACEBOOK SHAME.

Byline: Laura Armstrong

THESE are the brazen photos sacked EastEnders actress Melissa Suffield believes "destroyed" her telly career.

The snaps of the 17-year-old wild child, posted on Facebook, included an image of her pouting next to a lollipop with the words: "Suck me for pleasure."

It was the final straw for embarrassed soap bosses who had given the party-loving blonde THREE warnings to clean-up her act.

Filming her last scenes as Walford tearaway Lucy Beale this month, Melissa wrote on her web page: "Sat in the green room at work, my last day very emotional!

"I was a naughty girl outside of work, well that's what they have sacked me for, pathetic!" Referring to the lollipop pose that left bosses fuming, she said: "This is the photo that destroyed my career, how pathetic."

And in response to surprised comments from networking pals, she repeated: "It's f***ing pathetic... it's classed as rude!" But the teenager - who was pictured in last week's People showing off her bottom in cut-off shorts - confessed: "It was in the rules and I did have 3 warnings... I'm gutted. But it's all my fault."

Melissa wears a leopard-print bra-top and skirt hitched up to her thighs in one Facebook snap she took in a bedroom mirror.

She is also seen sticking out her tongue and flaunting her curves in a low-cut black mini-dress, smoking a cigarette on a stick and sitting at a table packed with booze.

Melissa, axed in May, made her debut as Lucy at 11, turning her into a headache for screen dad Ian and stepmum Jane Beale.

But the troublesome character is NOT being written out - Lucy will be played by another actress after Melissa's final episodes are aired on BBC1 later this year.

An EastEnders spokesman said: "It's common practice to recast actors employed as children to take on more challenging adult storylines."
