SURANNE Jones has been snapped beaming with joy after reuniting with her former Coronation Street pal Jennie McAlpine.
Wearing a long tailored jacket and a white T-shirt with a bustier print on it, スランヌ wrapped her arm around Jennie’s shoulder while smiling for snaps.
Suranne has since shared one of the photographs of her reunion with 38-year-old Jennie on Instagram, decorating it with a big red heart.
ザ・ Dr Foster star has also posted her own selfie, taken as the pair larked around together at the glitzy event.
Suranne stars as lead character Anne Lister in the historical TV drama series Gentleman Jack.
Having started acting aged 16, she received several knock backs before landing her big break in Coronation Street.
The star had initially auditioned for the role of Geena Gregory but lost out to Jennifer James. She also made it to the final four when rival soap Emmerdale was casting for Charity Dingle.
しかし、 2000, following her failed audition for Geena, Corrie bosses contacted Suranne and offered her the part of Karen Phillips – who later became Karen McDonald when she married Steve McDonald.
Suranne spent four years on the ITV1 soap playing Karen, working alongside Jennie – who is famed for her role as Fiz Brown. She won three top soap awards while there.
But the star eventually decided to leave Corrie to try her hand at new roles – and found herself being offered a list of reality shows.
She later told 保護者: “Leaving Corrie I was offered reality TV – lots of money to go off and eat a crocodile’s knob, or whatever.
“But you have to try to develop. Because the worst someone can say is, no thanks, stick to the day job.”
Suranne has since gone on to land leading parts in top dramas including Scott and Bailey, Dr Foster and the recent BBC thriller Vigil. She is also set to star in upcoming drama メリーランド.
Along with playing the lead in Gentleman Jack, the married mum-of-one is listed as executive producer for the second series of the historical show.
