Former Emmerdale star Sammy Winward has showed off her dramatic hair transformation.

The actress posted the picture of her new look to Instagram.

She captioned the post: "Don't think I've ever been this blonde but kinda liking it! Slightly terrifying having it bleached by my 15 year old (both nearly stormed off half way through as it was so stressful).

"But yet again, she's found something else that she's better than me at!"

Sammy's followers commented on her new hair.

Her Emmerdale co-star Charley Webb wrote: "The blondest Barbie I've ever seen."

Former Coronation Street and Hollyoaks actress Lucy-Jo Hudson commented: "Bloody gorgeous."

One follower wrote: "I love it!"

"It was for a scene or two with Andy. I was working so I couldn't fit it in.

"But I'd be open for a cheeky little ghost appearance now - if only Kelvin [Fletcher] was still in Emmerdale."
