Coronation Street: Faye Brookes' wedding dress pic ahead of her big day

She's due to get hitched to Gareth Gates next year

Faye Brookes has given her fans a glimpse of what she might look like when she marries her fiancé Gareth Gates.

Faye joined fellow Corrie co-star Victoria Ekanoye - who played Angie in the ITV soap - at the Friends Festival in Heaton Park in Manchester on Tuesday (August 6).

And she couldn't resist channeling her inner Rachel Green by putting on a white frock and getting in some practice for her own upcoming nuptials!

But something tells us Faye's dress will be less gaudy, and so much more elegant.

Faye also sat on the famous orange sofa from the show's titles, larked about in Central Perk, and sat in Chandler and Joey's leather armchairs.

The actress let her hair down just weeks after filming her final scenes as Kate Connor on the ITV soap.

I'll only get married once and I want it to be huge.

Faye announced she was leaving the soap earlier this year, and admitted it was partly to concentrate on her relationship with Gareth and their subsequent wedding.

The couple got engaged in January, after reconciling the previous October.

They had split briefly in 2019 citing their heavy work schedules.

Gareth popped the question during a trip to New York, presenting the star with a four-carat diamond ring.

At the time, Faye admitted it was a "perfect" proposal and said she is looking forward to getting married and spending the rest of her life with Pop Idol star Gareth.

She has since teased that she plans to "go big" with her dress and every other detail of the wedding.

She told OK! magazine: "I'll only get married once and I want it to be huge."

She also admitted she wants the ceremony to be "abroad, somewhere hot" and plans to only invite around 30 people.

Faye will become stepmum to Gareth's daughter Missy.

Gareth shares Missy with ex-wife Suzanne Mole, who he was with for 10 years before the pair split in 2011.
