Alexandra’s hair changes

This isn’t the first time Alexandra has coloured her hair during lockdown.

She first dyed it purple but after it washed out, she decided to go blue.

In her last look, instead of dying her hair, she opted for a green wig.

Soap stars changing their hair

Alexandra isn’t the only soap star to change up her look. As soaps are currently not filming, the actors are able to temporarily change their appearance.

Her Corrie co-star Tina O’Brien, who plays Sarah Barlow, recently dyed her hair pink.

As did Sue Cleaver (aka Eileeen Grimshaw). After sporting her new hair on a Good Morning Britain interview with Lorraine, fans claim her new look makes her look 10 years younger.

Their former co-star Lucy Fallon has also made the most of being able to change up her hair since leaving the soap. Most recently, she updated it to a pinky/peach colour.

When will Coronation Street return to filming?
