Coronation Street’s Janice Battersby star Vicky Entwistle looks unrecognisable

Vicky Entwistle 's fans couldn't believe how much she'd changed from her Coronation Street days as she shared a new selfie with her Twitter followers.

The actress was a familiar face – and voice – to millions thanks to her 14-year stint as loudmouth factory worker Janice Battersby on the ITV soap.

Vicky waved goodbye to the cobbles back in 2011, with Janice heading off to travel the world with boyfriend Trevor Dean.

The soap legend became recognised across the nation for her glossy blonde locks and youthful-looking appearance.

However Vicky, 51, is now rocking a shorter spiky hairstyle with a golden sun-tan.

Last year, the actress returned to screens after landing a role in the second series of Channel 4 drama Ackley Bridge playing mum-of-two Sandra Turner.

She tweeted her excitement about the part, writing: "Such fun working on Series 2 with a top bunch of friendly & very talented folk!!!"

In May 2018, Vicky also celebrated her 18th wedding anniversary with husband Andrew Chapman.

Marking the moment, she shared a photo with her Twitter followers and beamed with happiness alongside her man.

One fan commented on the sweet snap: "You haven't changed much."

While another shared: "Still a cracker Vic!"

Another user tweeted: "Lovely photo. Leanne needs you in Corrie."


Vicky famously lost over three stone dropping from a size 16 to a six. The telly star then released an exercise DVD, Vicky's WOW! Weight Off Workout, in 2006.

Since leaving Corrie, Vicky has worked on the stage. She starred as the Wicked Queen in Blackpool's 2011 adaption of Snow White And The Seven Dwarves.

Then in 2013 she played the role of Madame Thenardier in Les Miserables on the West End.

After her stint on the West End, she entered the Celebrity Big Brother house along with Bruce Jones to compete in the twelfth series.

In 2017 she made an appearance as Frances Whittaker on the BBC popular daytime show Father Brown.

But the door was left open for Vicky to make a return to Corrie, as unlike many popular characters Janice Battersby's end didn't result in her being killed off.
