EMMERDALE’s Isabel Hodgins has shared a dramatic transformation as she dyes her cropped hair a platinum blonde.
The actress who plays Victoria Sugden on the soap went from brunette to the stunning platinum colour over Christmas.
But she only posted the photo today, hoping it would cheer people up during the coronavirus lockdown.
Isabel, 26, wrote: “If anyone wants to go from brown to blonde, just know there will be a time, before the toner, where you look like Big Bird.”
“This was over Christmas- yes hair dressers are closed. it’s such a ridiculous photo I thought it would make people smile.”
The star looked completely different with her new look and clearly fans loved it.
One Instagram user responded to the photo saying: “You are so beautiful.”
Another wrote they could relate to the awkwardness of a new hair colour: “I’ve been there hun. I was a bit Donald Trump for a while.”
The UK government has closed hairdressers and other non-essential services such as bars and restaurants during the coronavirus crisis to prevent the further transmission of the virus.
Show bosses are struggling to ensure there are enough episodes remain for the lockdown.Thursday evenings are usually a treat for soap fans with the three award-winning programmes all airing across the evening but tonight will be the first time since the UK government placed the country into lockdown that the broadcasters have all pulled their programmes.

Isabel’s character on Emmerdale, Victoria, might welcome the break from filming after surviving a harrowing year.
The character has been through a rape, the conviction of her brother Robert for murdering her rapist Lee Posner and welcoming baby William to the world.
Victoria was recently forced to break up with Lee’s brother, Luke Posner, after she realised she was not ready for a relationship.
She told Luke: “But last night wasn’t, I just can’t. Not with anyone. It felt like it was happening to someone else. I’m really sorry. I wanted it to work, I really did, so much.”
