Much-loved soap Coronation Street has been on our screens for just over 50 years and we have seen some iconic characters come and go, from Deirdre Barlow to Tina McIntyre who was played by the flawless Michelle Keegan.

When you think of the show, you tend to go towards the dramatic, heartbreaking, and fiery storylines, not for the fashion on there.

Well, a certain character has come out of the woodworks and has weirdly become somewhat of a style icon on the cobbles.

Long-term character Gail Platt, who is played by actress Helen Worth, recently became the centre of shoppers’ attention when a specific jumper that the star wore rose to popularity.

Last week a tweet from charity shop worker Kat was posted in which she revealed how a customer had returned a jumper after seeing Gail Platt sport it on the soap.

Kat tweeted: “no way has a customer just brought this jumper back for a refund (I work in a charity shop) because they “saw gail platt wearing it on #corrie on monday.

“going to resell it and label it ‘as worn by gail platt."

She then replied to her own tweet with: “this is genuinely the best refund excuse i’ve ever had. what’s wrong with our ICONIC gail wearing it.”

Firstly, what a time to be alive with drama revolving the fashion of the show and secondly, we agree with what Kat said, she may not be known for her fashionable style choices but she is definitely iconic.

Since Kat’s tweet was posted, many other users have replied wanting to get their hands on the Marks and Spencer’s knitted jumper.

One user commented with: “I want it and I’m happy to pay postage and a donation on top of the price.”

Whilst another followed with: “the cheek I’d be overjoyed if I saw gail wearing something I own”

Who knew that the one and only Gail Platt would become an icon for her style, watch this space as before we know she’ll be on the runways in Paris soon.
