Fans have gone wild over Catherine’s new look.

Her former Corrie co-star Helen Flanagan was also a huge fan of Catherine’s hairdo.

Catherine’s new look comes shortly after she left Coronation Street after seven years on the soap.

The actress announced last year that she was leaving the soap to pursue “new acting projects” and enjoy some time with her family.

She recently revealed she wants to stretch her wings beyond just performing and become a writer.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, she said: “We plan to travel, laugh as much as possible, live in the moment, work hard and cuddle my boys

“In between, I’m writing books and scripts too, ideally on a beach or in the Lake District.”

She added: “It’s been the hardest decision of my life. Corrie is my second home – best seven years of my life.”

Last week, the star wrapped up filming her final scene as Eva.

Catherine took to Instagram to share a video of herself sobbing as her co-stars clapped and cheered.

In the video, Catherine cuddles her on-screen baby Susie as her co-stars hug and kiss her goodbye.

Fans were also overcome with emotion and expressed their sadness to see Catherine leave the soap.

One person wrote: “You’re an amazing actor! Sad to see you go,” while another added: “Eva is one of my fave characters – can’t believe it.”
