Coronation Street viewers were left stunned last night as the soap’s Gemma Winter looked barely recognisable after a dramatic transformation.
Gemma underwent a glamorous makeover in Wednesday night’s episode as she posed for a bedroom photoshoot.
The new mum enjoyed some time away from her quadruplets as she modelled a pink silk blouse and tweed two-piece on the set of the photoshoot for the retail brand Freshco’s.
The picture of radiance, Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell) had her hair blown out in waves and sported subtle and elegant makeup – a stark contrast to her usual dressed down look featuring hoop earrings and hair in a bun.
Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) and Gemma were scrubbed up by a hair and makeup team – and viewers couldn’t believe the results.
Taking to Twitter in disbelief, one fan said: “How gorgeous does Gemma look?”
Another chipped in: “Blimey! Gemma looking all ladylike there!!”
And a third said: “OMG @dolly_campbell looked incredible on @itvcorrie tonight.”
Halfway through the shoot, Chesney and Gemma were invited into a bedroom suite to kick back and relax between shots.
The new parents kept things PG and settled down for a nap after Gemma smiled mischievously at Chesney and asked: “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?”
The lovebirds two conked out for several hours – leading Chesney to miss his shift at the kebab shop.
Furious, Dev Patel gave the dad-of-four an ultimatum, testing his commitment to the job.
Gemma interrupted their conversation and assured Dev they didn’t need his money any longer, thanks to their Freshco’s paycheck.
Gemma has been embroiled in hard-hitting drama on the cobbles recently after her brother Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) bravely revealed to her and mum Bernie (Jane Hazlegrove) that he was sexually abused by stepdad Kel (Joe Alessi) when he was a child.
Bernie has done everything in her power to get revenge on Kel but so far, nothing has worked.
Coronation Street airs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
