Smouldering in the close-up snap taken in her car, Michelle looked every inch a blonde bombshell as she gave her 2.6 million followers a first look at her striking new hair colour. "No filter just sunlight… #theotherside," she simply captioned the photo.

This marks the first time that Michelle has strayed from her chocolate-hued tresses. Although she has opted for lighter shades before, she has always stuck to brunette tones.

Although platinum blonde hair is one of the summer's biggest beauty trends, it seems that Michelle wasn't after simply looking for a new look to rock over the next few months. In fact, her gorgeous new tresses are for her upcoming role as Bobby Moore's wife Tina in TV drama Tina & Bobby.
