Pulling like a pro: Cheryl Cole makes her Coronation Street debut
Singer Cheryl Cole has added yet another string to her bow - soap star.
The former X Factor judge has dabbled on the big screen before with a cameo in What to Expect When You're Expecting, and is building excitement ahead of her highly anticipated Coronation Street debut.
She plays herself in her role on the ITV soap, stunning onlookers as she enters Rover's Return looking for her old friend Tina, played by Michelle Keegan.
The scenes were filmed earlier this month and Cole caused much fanfare posting photos of her and Keegan behind the scenes, 'sharing a pint'.
Her trademark long locks are styled to full effect, while she wears a relatively demure polo neck jumper paired with a grey mini skirt and thigh high boots, as she exits her onscreen vehicle - a red Mini Cooper.
Cole has made select television appearances since she left The X Factor in 2011.
And rumours are rife that she will made a dramatic return to the panel next year, alongside Simon Cowell, to boost flagging ratings of the 10 year old reality show.
