CORONATION STREET star Annabelle Tarrant is unrecognisable 20 years since her soap exit.
The actress played Alice Watts, the daughter of Curly and Raquel Watts back in 2000.
Annabelle, now 25, was just three-years-old when she joined the cobbles.
Alice was the daughter Curly never knew he had, until his estranged wife Raquel turned up on his doorstep on New Year’s Eve.
After landing the soap role, Annabelle’s proud parents told Worcester News: “We are really proud.
“We were thrilled when we heard she was given the part.”

She previously wrote on her work bio: “I am a graduate of Addict Dance Academy where I studied a range of dance styles from Jazz and Contemporary to Commercial and Hip Hop.
“From there I completed the end of a season as a Dancer/Animator at the Blue Lagoon Resort in Kos, Greece.
“I then spent a season at Trabolgan holiday village as a Dancer, Entertainer and Character performer.
“While this year I have had the pleasure of being a Dancer/Singer/Animator at the Louis Paphos Breeze hotel in Cyprus for 6 months.”
It comes after Corrie star Martin Hancock is due to return to our screens as Spider Nugent very soon.
But the soap star looks totally different to what people remember him as 19 years ago on the ITV show.
Martin will be returning to Corrie as the much-loved eco warrior in July this year.
His alter-ego, who was married to Toyah Battersby, stayed in Weatherfield until 2000.
He later made some brief returns in 2001 and 2003.
Speaking about his return, Martin said: “Having the opportunity to walk back onto the cobbles is fabulous, I’m so excited to be seeing a lot of old friends and picking up what Spider has been up to.
“I’ve always wanted to come back at some point and it just felt like this is the right time. I’m eternally grateful to Iain [Macleod] for the opportunity.”
“His return heralds an enthralling new story for Toyah, who will be embroiled in a mess of guilt and secrecy when Spider arrives. Will he be her saviour or the thing that ruins her life forever?”
