Katherine Kelly looks very different with bright pink hair ahead of Innocent premiere

EX-CORONATION Street star Katherine Kelly showed off her bright pink hair ahead of ITV's Innocent premiere.

Katherine joined Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary on This Morning to chat about her upcoming crime drama.

The actress wowed fans with her bubble gum pink bob during Friday's show.

She looked worlds away from her new character as she debuted the striking new 'do.

Presenter Alison gushed over Katherine's hair transformation and praised her for always getting into character in every role she does.

Alison said: "What I love about you though Katherine. When I see you in certain things, you look completely different.

"First of all, I'm loving this pink hair."

ITV viewers were also impressed by her dramatic hair overhaul, with one writing: "Katherine Kelly is underrated. I NEED that hair!"

Another posted: "Love a good drama. Katherine Kelly is great and I love the hair colour."

A third added: "Oooooh Katherine Kelly's hair is gorgeous."

Speaking about the production of the new drama, she said: "We actually filmed most of it in Ireland, so Ireland went into lockdown quite a bit before us [in the UK]. 

"We're supposed to go in March, I arrived in September, it was one of the first shows that started back up… it was a huge responsibility to make sure we did it well. 

"I had to self-isolate for two weeks, and hardly any hotels were open at that time, but they couldn’t looked after me more."

The actress debuted her new look on Tuesday, admitting that back-to-back acting jobs forced her to wait five years to switch colours.

She told Radio Times: "People think that you are the characters you play, and, you know, we’re not.

"I mean, I don’t own a suit. I enjoy being that chameleon and I love embracing a role. I’ve been very lucky – I tend to go from job to job. But that means I can never choose my own hair colour. I’ve wanted to dye it pink for about five years."

The actress will front season two of the drama as a teacher accused of sleeping with a teenage.

Katherine will play a teacher called Sally Wright, who is accused of having sex with 16-year-old student Matty Taylor.

To make matters worse, Matty is then found murdered, having been stabbed with a broken beer bottle, and Sally ends up being convicted of his murder.

She is sentenced to 15 years in prison, but once inside, new evidence comes to light which could prove her innocence.

Sally is determined to clear her name having already lost her job, husband and home, but will she be able to prove what really happened to Matty?

Innocent season two will begin on Monday, May 17 on ITV.
