Nicola Duffett is a British actress who portrayed Debbie Bates in EastEnders from 1993 to 1995 when her character was killed off in an off-screen road accident.

Nicola first made her name in the Oscar-winning film Howards End playing the prostitute, Jackie Bast. Before this Nicola had already made several TV appearances in The Bill and Maigret, as well as providing one of the voices for cult sci-fi show Jupiter Moon.

Before joining EastEnders, Nicola was a genuine fan of the show and rates Bill Treacher's performance during Arthur's breakdown as the most significant piece of television acting she's ever seen.
