Coronation Street star Faye Brookes has wowed fans ahead of her upcoming wedding by giving them a sneak peek into her wedding dress fitting.
The actress, who is known to soap fans as Corrie’s Kate Connor, is set to marry her Legally Blonde co-star and long-time friend Iwan Lewis, who she began dating in 2022.
The pair got engaged in January of this year after dating for three months.
Taking to Instagram, Faye teased fans with a glimpse at what she may be wearing on the big day, which will be held in the Cotswolds later this year.
She posted several pictures of herself trying on different dresses with a cartoon filter, captioning the post ‘Bridal Barbie’, in reference to Greta Gerwig’s recent box office hit.
Fans were in awe of the actress and took to the comments to shower her with compliments ahead of her big day.
‘You’re going to make the most beautiful bride Faye,’ one said.
‘Such a gorgeous dress you look stunning Faye . Loving proud mum in the mirror,’ another added.
‘All of these dresses are amazing,’ a third wrote, adding heart eyes emojis.
Faye and Iwan, who played lovers Elle and Emmett in the hit musical, were friends for 11 years before finally getting together, as Faye explained to OK! Magazine.
‘On day one of rehearsals of Legally Blonde, we’d known each other for a few years by now.
‘He came up to me and went, “By the end of this tour, we’re going to be together.” I was like, “Mate, no, we’re not.”‘
‘Emmett [was] the nerd who gets the girl in the end,’ Iwan added. ‘Sometimes art imitates life. There’s always been chemistry, but we’ve never gone there until now. It’s been written in the stars from the beginning. I’ve never been able to play it cool and I let Faye know on day one.’
