Vanessa Hudgens kept her hair under wraps as she arrived on location in Glasgow for filming of The Princess Switch sequel.

The High School Musical star will reprise her dual roles in The Princess Switch: Switched Again – a follow-up to the Christmas film released in November 2018.

She will play her roles of Duchess Margaret and baker Stacy and this time she will also play a third character, party girl Fiona.

Hudgens arrived to film at Glasgow Cathedral in a dark car, with her hair covered by a blue scarf, secured by silver clips.

She also sported a pale blue puffa jacket.
