Coronation Street favourite Brooke Vincent was a far cry from her normal self as she played a car crash victim in a short film. Taking to Instagram, Brooke showed off a battered and bruised appearance, shocking fans in the process. The 25-year-old actress posted a video of a make-up artist creating her very realistic look, as well as before and after shots. "Had the best time playing Liv today!!" she revealed, giving a shout out to director Dominic Stephenson. "Thank you Dom for picking me to play her!! I loved it!!! #shortfilm."
Fans will recognise Brooke as Corrie's Sophie Webster. She has starred on the soap since 2004, and while she has taken on the occasional side project, Brooke has no plans to leave any time soon. Speaking to the Radio Times following a theatre run in Salford, she said: "I loved doing the play and I've come back with a completely different mindset. I wouldn't necessarily want to leave, but I wouldn't be as scared to. I might be like Peter Barlow and dip in and out as and when! That'd be nice."

It's full of wonderful memories and I can't wait to make some new ones."
