CORONATION Street star Ellie Leach looked worlds away from her TV character as she celebrated her birthday.
The actress, who plays Faye Windass, looked stunning with wavy hair and a natural makeup look.
Ellie rocked a green beret and chic long-sleeved black top to ring in her 21st birthday.
She celebrated with a party at The Mancunian suite at Manchester City FC's stadium.
Surrounded by family and friends, Ellie changed into a strapless and sparkly silver mini dress.
Ellie wore her hair in a side part and loose curls, finishing the look with a smoky eye.
Fans loved her green beret and complimented the Corrie star on her style.
"Love ❤️," wrote one fan.
Another added: "What a beauty ❤️xx"
And a third wrote: "Beautiful ❤️."
Ellie's big party comes after she signed a new contract to stay on the soap.
She will be sticking around on the Cobbles for at least another year after bosses asked her to stay on following the exit of two characters.
A source said: “Ellie is a huge talent and bosses are delighted she’s signed a new contract.
“She’s really proved herself time and time again, most recently after the accident which caused Ted’s death. There’s lots more to come from her and some exciting storylines ahead.”

She recently took six months off the soap while her character was in prison.
She was sentenced for attacking Adam, thinking he was pervert Ray and left him for dead.
Her character returned to screens this year, with Ellie admitting she had a “boring” time doing “nothing”.
"It was the most boring six months. I couldn't wait to get back to work,” she explained.

"I would have liked to have gone away but obviously with the travel restrictions and stuff it meant that I couldn't which was quite sad but I'm sure there will be times where I can go away soon."
