Coronation Street star unrecognisable with bright pink hair seven years after dramatic soap death | The Sun

A FORMER Coronation Street favourite looked unrecognisable in a hot pink ponytail and thick black mascara during a complete transformation.

Paula Lane, 36, who played much-loved Kylie Platt, appeared totally different after swapping her brunette locks for the neon fringed bob.

The actress and mum-of-two paired her bright barnet with a sparkling sequin dress and black nail polish.

The Coronation Street alumni was glamming up for her role in the Cinderella pantomime in Oldham.

In her Instagram image caption, she joked: "22 shows in and these hairstyles are getting more whacky!"

Cinderella isn't her first time starring in theatre as she starred in Sleeping Beauty last year, as well as taking on roles as Lauren in Kinky Boots and Rachel in Be More Martyn.

Last year, the screen star looked completely different from her character Kylie in a series of glam selfies.

Paula played the nail technician in the ITV soap between 2010 and 2016.

Kylie moved to Weatherfield in 2010 and it was revealed that she was Becky McDonald's half-sister.

Her alter-ego, who was married to David Platt, was involved in a number of hard hitting storylines including drug addiction, cheating on her husband with his brother Nick Tilsley and killing her son Max's dad Callum Logan.

In 2014 Paula left the soap for a short period of time for maternity leave and returned a year later.

But then in 2016 it was revealed she was leaving the hit show for good after falling pregnant with her second child.

In July that year Kylie was brutally killed by Clayton Hibbs just days before moving to Spain.

At the time, fans were sent into a frenzy as they watched Kylie become embroiled in the horrifying knife drama.

She then lay dying in David's arms as he attempted to comfort while the ambulance was on its way.

However, she died just seconds before the medics arrived on the scene, and David let out a howl of anguish as he realised the doctors were too late to save his wife.
