CORONATION Street star Faye Brookes went out on the town with purple hair and a sparkly silver dress today in the wake of her split from singer Gareth Gates.

She didn’t hold back on the make-up either, with her face covered in sparkling gems and sporting pink make-up days after The Sun Online revealed she had split from Gareth, 35.

She tweeted: “It’s been a really weird week…

“It’s great for your physical and mental health. I’m a member of several gyms in Manchester including the fab Barry’s Bootcamp.

“So (yesterday) there was a pap outside the gym when I got there, taking pictures of me & getting very excited with his camera because I walked in with one of the trainers from the gym – who is a friend.”
