"Thanks for my hair @aimeemariehairxx @blowltd xxxx," the Tracey Barlow actress captioned the photo. Compliments soon came Kate's way, with one fan telling her: "It looks fabulous," while another said: "You look beautiful." A third added: "Looking good Kate."

The actress – who has played Tracey in Coronation Street on and off since 2001 – and her character has just got engaged to boyfriend Steve MacDonald, although like with all storylines in the world of soap, it isn’t expected to go smoothly, especially as Steve has already expressed having cold feet about their relationship. Having been in the show for over ten years, Kate is now used to being spotted in the streets, but has admitted that she doesn’t always like it. Talking to The Mirror, she confessed: "There are moments when I’m having a bad day where I’ve felt like I don’t want to be approached, but on a good day, it’s OK. I haven’t always been as nice as I should have been because there have been other things going on, then I’ve regretted it for the rest of the day."

Kate loves dressing up for the red carpet

There is one part of her job that Kate particularly loves though – and that’s dressing up for the red carpet. "I like the red carpets because it’s an excuse to buy a pair of Louboutins, put a nice dress on and get my hair done," she said. However, Kate doesn’t like the parties as much, adding: "I don’t like going to a lot of parties. I like to hang around with the people I’m most comfortable with. Small talk horrifies me."
