Coronation Street star Tina O'Brien looked completely different from her usual self, albeit still ageless, as she took to social media with a throwback snap of herself dressed as an iconic film character.
Fans best know the actress for playing Sarah Barlow - nee Platt - in the ITV soap. She made her debut on the cobbles back in 1999 when she was just 16, and starred in the long-running show up until 200. Then, after a seven-year break, she returned to the role in 2015.
Tina has also starred in Clocking Off in 2000 and BBC school drama Waterloo Road as pupil Bex Fisher but her TV debut came in 1997 when she, like many of her fellow Corrie co-stars, she appeared in ITV series Children's Ward. But it appears there's a role Tina may have always been destined for.
The soap star, 38, shared a snap with her thousands of followers from when transformed into Frances "Baby" Houseman from 1987 movie Dirty Dancing. The classic flick saw Hollywood actress Jennifer Grey become famed for the role of Baby, who fell in love with the rebellious Johnny Castle, played by the late Patrick Swayze.
Tina looked incredible as she donned a plunging pink dress, similar to that of Baby's worn in the film's famous lift scene. She ditched her usual straight locks to recreate Baby's signature curls and pinned a photo of Patrick Swayze to her dress, which she had paired with some silver heels, with writing which read: "Nobody puts Baby in a corner."
And would it have really been complete if she wasn't carrying a watermelon? "Throwback to when I went to fancy dress as 'who did you want to be when you grew up?'" Tina captioned the brilliant snap.
She then followed up with the image with another of her husband Adam Crofts holding her up into the air like Patrick did with Baby to the memorable track, [I've Had] The Time of my Life. "He's never dropped me..." the mum-of-two wrote, before adding: "Yet!"
Tina and Adam married on New Years Eve 2018 at the uber-luxurious King Street Townhouse in Manchester. Adam, a global business developer for the personal training company UP Fitness, proposed to Tina in May 2016. The couple met after her daughter Scarlett, who she shared with former Corrie co-star ex Ryan Thomas, approached Adam when mother and daughter were in a branch of Starbucks and said “hello, man.”
Prior to getting engaged, in 2014, Tina gave birth to the couple's first child together, a boy named Beau, who turns eight next month. Tina and Adam were dubbed 'couple goals' last month after she shared a look at the pair's romantic European break to Amsterdam. The pair spent a weekend taking in the sights and enjoying some time together in the Netherlands’ capital.
Tina set a montage of their holiday images and video clips to the emotional track If the World Was Ending by JP Saxe and Julia Michaels. " Beautiful weekend to Amsterdam," she captioned the post with a string of red heart emojis.
