FORMER Coronation Street star Paula Lane looks completely unrecognizable to Kylie Platt in a selection of VERY glam selfies.
The 35-year-old actress starred as the nail technician on the ITV soap opera between 2010 and 2016.
The Yorkshire girl is currently playing Carabosse in the Sleeping Beauty pantomime.
Paula loved keeping fans up to date with all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans and shared plenty of snaps on social media.
She recently shared a stunning photo in her costume on Twitter with the caption: “40 winks between shows! #Sleepingbaddie.”
The soap star looked amazing with a dramatic smokey eye look, a bold red lip, and rosy cheeks.
Paula shared the same selfie on Instagram, and her fans have flocked to the comments section to praise her look.
One of them wrote: “Watching the gorgeous Paula play the villain, you will give it a head start @paula_laney.”
Another said: “You were a fantastic villain, we enjoyed the show so much.”
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, has been involved in a number of hard-hitting stories, including drug addiction, her husband’s cheating on her brother Nick Tilsley and the murder of her son Max’s father, Callum Logan. .
In 2014, Paula left the soap opera for a short time on maternity leave and returned a year later.
But in 2016, it was revealed that she was leaving the hit series for good after falling pregnant with her second child.
In July of the same year, Kylie was brutally killed by Clayton Hibbs just days before moving to Spain to forget about Callum’s murder.
Since her time as Corrie, Paula has appeared in a number of TV shows, including Call the Midwife.
Sleeping Beauty isn’t her first time in theater, having played Lauren in Kinky Boots and Rachel in Be More Martyn.
