Michelle Keegan stopped fans in their tracks when she shared a photo of her latest look.
The Brassic and Our Girl star from Irlam always looks stunning, and she dazzled as she posed in an all-white outfit during lockdown.
But her followers on Instagram thought the actress had given herself a haircut.
It appeared that Michelle, who played Tina McIntyre in Coronation, was sporting a new shorter hairdo in the photo shared with her 4.5million followers.
“Short hair? @michkeegan” asked one fan.
“Have you cut your hair short beaut?” asked another follower.
But it turns out Michelle, 32, had just styled her long hair differently.
“Nooo just pinned back,” she told one fan who asked ‘haircut?’
“Arr I thought so … either that or you’d attempted a quarantine DIY haircut. I tried that on my son and it did not end well!” the fan replied.
“You look amazing,” said another.
After playing barmaid Tina in Corrie Michelle went on to win hearts as plucky Stockport army medic Georgie Lane in the BBC drama Our Girl, and she plays Erin in the comedy drama Brassic about the adventures of a group of friends living in Lancashire.
Last month the actress thanked heroic NHS staff in her home town as they worked another 12 hour shift on the coronavirus frontline.
Michelle shared a tweet from intensive care staff at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport to her 4.5million followers with a message of appreciation.
“Absolute heroes! Thank you,” she wrote.
