Coronation Street’s Ellie Leach looked a far cry from the Coronation Street cobbles as she shared a new Instagram photo. The Faye Windass actress, who recently celebrated her 21st birthday de ella, posted a glam selfie showing her posing in a pretty floral dress.
Ellie, who has played the adopted daughter of Anna Windass in Corrie for 11 years, showcased a new shorter hairstyle that fell in soft waves around her face. Her blush colored dress with red rose print won lots of compliments and put a smile on her face as she wrote: “Catch me wearing this dress everywhere.”
Ellie sported a soft red lip color to coordinate with her show stopping dress and a winged eyeliner with perfectly groomed brows. And co-star Millie Gibson, who plays Kelly Neelan in the soap, told her she looked ‘jaw-dropping.’

“Omg stop it you’re too kind,” pleaded Ellie. But the praise kept pouring in for her look. isabelprince_ begged: “Stoppppp it now!!!” susan.walton.75 said: “Gorgeous.” And kfrost20_12 messaged: “Wow I can’t cope.”
In the soap, her character has recently been through heartache after thinking she was expecting with boyfriend Craig Tinker. But then she discovered during a scan for a miscarriage scare that there was no baby and she had never been pregnant.
Fans are now concerned for Faye’s health after she was advised to have a check-up after the scan, saying she hadn’t had regular periods for a while. In Friday night’s episode (April 15) she and Craig were feeling amorous as the Underworld worker told him she was focusing on having fun after deciding they weren’t going to try for a baby.
But some Corrie fans complained of feeling queasy as Faye was seen tempting Craig into the bedroom. ‘Geronimo’ enthusiastically declared as he unzipped his hoodie and chased after a pajama-clad Faye, who had coquettishly removed her dressing gown from her.
@GregDav94758992 tweeted a ‘please don’t’ GIF. And @iamagiraffe complained: “Well that scene with Craig and Faye is enough to put me off my Easter eggs.” @MeeshyJay exclaimed “Craig and Faye” with vomiting emojis. And @itzzzo_ tweeted a ‘make it stop’ GIF.
The couple are back on track after policeman Craig quit the force for a while after getting drawn into his girlfriend’s cover-up over the death of elderly man Ted on New Year’s Day. Craig was helping to protect Faye and her best friend from her Emma Brooker after they accidentally ran down Ted during her driving lesson, which caused resentment.
But recently there was relief after Ted’s grandson Jon found out the truth that the girls were the last people to see him before he died alone in his flat, insisting that he felt fine and that he didn’t want an ambulance. Jon, who had fallen for Emma, said it brought him comfort to know he hadn’t been alone and he left to start a new life in Australia with Emma after deciding he wasn’t going to the police.
