Coronation Street fans have said they barely recognised Bernie Winters star Jane Hazlegrove after she underwent a glamorous makeover.

The actress, 55, has been a mainstay in the long-running ITV soap since 2019 when she re-entered the lives of her children, Gemma and Paul. On the cobbles, Bernie works at Roy's Rolls and Prima Doner, and the character dresses very casually.

But as part of a new campaign celebrating the "Women of Weatherfield", Jane and a number of her female co-stars have got all dressed up for a stunning photoshoot.

Corrie bosses said the "women of Weatherfield take centre stage this month as secrets unfold, lies are unearthed and love is put to the test." As well as the exclusive photo, there are interviews with each of the actresses, that can be read on the ITV website.

The photoshoot has been shared in a number of Instagram updates, and one in particular features gorgeous shots of Lucy Fallon, who plays Bethany Platt, Dee-Dee Bailey actress Channique Sterling-Brown, and Bernie star Jane. Lucy wears a tiered orange dress, while Channique and Jane have opted for bold pink numbers.

Catherine said: "I didn’t recognise Bernie at all lol" and Denise said: "OMG Bernie!!! I hardly knew you. Fabulous". Debbie said "You all look gorgeous. Wow Bernie, didn't even recognise you, you look beautiful".
