Corrie star Michelle Collins unrecognisable as she unveils transformation

Former EastEnders and Coronation Street star Michelle Collins has adopted a striking new hairdo.

The soap star showed off her stunning pink locks on Instagram as she teased her fans from behind the scenes of her latest filming project.

Michelle, 59, is currently in Cardiff shooting scenes for a new movie where she plays a sex worker.

In the picture she is seen looking down at the camera with a wry smile, with her wavy locks and fringe framing her face.

Michelle finished the look with heavy eye make up, a leather jacket and a large statement necklace.

She captioned the image: "#pinkhair #loveit .#badass #filming #nightshoot #ladyofthenight #freezing #cardiff but lovely #crew #cast .#keepingmewarm."

Fans of the popular actress flocked to the comments section to heap praise on her for the sultry new look.

One wrote: "You look incredible."

Another added: "Ooh I love this colour."

And a third chipped in: "Wow looks fabulous."

However, it seems the look may have been a temporary change for Michelle as she was later seen with her usual blonde hairstyle in subsequent images on board a train.

Stylists on the set of her filming project – reported to be "a prospective gritty role playing a prostitute” by The Sun – may have used a wig to achieve the desired look.

Fans are more used to seeing Michelle with her trademark bleach blonde lob which has been a steady feature since her days playing Cindy Beale on EastEnders between 1988 – 1998.

Michelle is also known for playing Stella Price in Coronation Street from 2011 – 2014.

She eventually departed the soap after Karl Munro’s arrest, which led Stella to file for a divorce and sell the Rovers back to Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson).

Michelle also starred in Casualty and Death in Paradise.
