Samia Longchambon, who plays Maria Connor in Coronation Street, has gone back to her roots having her hair straight instead of curled.

The actress posted a picture to her Instagram account.

The actress captioned the post: "Playing it straight for a change."

Friends and fans rushed to comment.

Former Corrie actress Catherine Tyldesley, who played Eva Price, commented a string of heart-eyed emojis.

One fan wrote: "Beautiful pic."

A second commented: "Gorgeous."

Fans of the show will remember in Maria's first years on Coronation Street, she used to keep her hair straight and mostly up in a ponytail.

It turned out she caught the measles from Daniel Osbourne's son Bertie, after Daniel failed to take the baby for his jabs.

Maria's mum also failed to vaccinate her and at the hospital she was told her miscarriage was likely due to her having measles.
