Let’s take a look…

Dolly-Rose Campbell

If you’re a Corrie fan then you’ll know character Gemma Winter well, from her big personality and outlandish dress sense.

Ellie Leach

Ellie Leach, 19, is best known for playing the role of schoolgirl Faye Windass on Corrie.

And while we’re used to seeing Ellie in her uniform, when she’s not on the cobbles the soap star, whose cousin is co-star Brooke Vincent, is a lover of all things glam.

Yes the stunning brunette often opts for a beautiful dress, a glam make-up look and a show-stopping hairstyle and boy, does she wow.

Luisa Bradshaw-White

EastEnders star Luisa Bradshaw-White is known for her dyed hair on the soap, which she usually partners with bold clothing.

However, when she isn’t frequenting Walford, the 45 year old does have the same dyed hair but dresses in some much more chic outfits than her character Tina Carter.

The star also has multiple tattoos which she recently shared a look at on Instagram.

Lorraine Stanley

And from one EastEnders actress to the next, Lorraine Stanley, who plays Karen Taylor in the soap, is another star who looks totally different out of character.

On the soap Lorraine, 44, is known for her love of a hooded jacket, worn denim jeans and vests, but off-screen it’s quite the different story.

The gorgeous actress loves a lavish frock, a blow dry and some fashionable footwear and, all in all, she looks a far cry from her Karen Taylor character.
