Coronation Street’s Ellie Leach showed off her brand new look as she celebrated the Easter bank holiday weekend.
The actress – who plays Faye Windass on the soap – posted a glam selfie on Instagram, posing in a floral dress as she showed off her gorgeous makeover.
The star opted for a subtle red lip and showed off her glossy pout to the camera.
Ellie was a far cry from her character on the soap, but she looked incredible.
“Catch me wearing this dress everywhere,” she captioned the snap.
Her Corrie co-stars were taken aback by the stunning photo.
Millie Gibson, who plays Kelly Neelan in the soap, told her she looked ‘jaw-dropping.’
Ellie penned back: “Omg stop it you’re too kind.”
Others also complimented the star, with one person saying: “Stoppppp it now!!!” and another shared: “Gorgeous.”
Ellie recently opened up about suffering with anxiety when meeting new people.
And even having spent the past decade on the cobbles doesn’t stop her getting star-struck when she bumps into legendary cast members such as Bill Roache, who plays Ken Barlow.
“I’ve been there 11 years and when I see Bill I’ll say hi to him, but then I’m like, ‘Oh my God, it’s Bill!’” she says.
“I don’t think those nerves will ever go away. The older cast members are such icons and I can’t believe I’m in the same room as them. I was the same with Malcolm Hebden [Norris Cole].”
She featured in a storyline last year in which the troubled teen was jailed for assault.
It meant Ellie was off work for six months. She revealed: “I was so anxious I couldn’t sleep the night before. I arrived in the car park and I had to ring Colson Smith [who plays Craig Tinker].
“I said to him: ‘I don’t think I can come in; you might have to come and get me.’ He told me not to be daft, but I struggled to get out of the car, I was so nervous.”
Ellie says she had always been shy as a child, adding: “When I was younger, I was so shy I would literally never talk to anyone. My mum says I was like her shadow – I’d hide behind her the whole time and wouldn’t engage with anyone.
“She wanted to help build my confidence, so when I was about four, she put me into a drama class.”
