'Still look 18!' Coronation Street stars stunned by Tina O'Brien's real age
Coronation Street actress Tina O’Brien has taken to Instagram to share a selection of new headshots, and has surprised several of her co-stars by revealing her age.
‘I’m turning 40 this year,’ the Sarah Platt actress captioned the post, ‘decided its time to update my seriously outdated headshots for Spotlight.’
Her Corrie co-stars were left stunned by the pictures, with Jane Danson, who plays Leanne Battersby, feeling inspired to redo her own headshots.
‘Absolutely gorgeous T .’ She wrote. ‘Maybe its time I did mine! I’m 45 this year and mine are a 23 year old me in black and white,’ she joked, adding a laughing emoji.
Former Corrie stars were baffled by Tina’s age, with Eva Price actress Catherine Tyldesley saying: ‘Babe!!! 40?!?! You still look 13!!!’
Brooke Vincent, known for her role as Sophie Webster, said: ‘Still look 21,’ with a heart eyes emoji.
Georgia Taylor (Toyah Habeeb), Julia Goulding (Shona Platt) and Hollyoaks star Nikki Sanderson (Maxine Minniver) all also gave the photos some love, calling the actress ‘beautiful’ and ‘gorgeous’.
The actress has played Sarah Platt on the ITV soap since 1999, and fans were quick to agree that she doesn’t look much older than when she first appeared on screen.
‘Yet you haven’t aged one bit!!’ One fan commented. ‘Was watching Corrie the other night and said to my Mum, “Sarah doesn’t bloody age!!”‘
‘Any danger you start to look even close to your age at some point orrrrr??? Lol Gorgeous as ever,’ another said.
Tina is being kept very busy on the cobbles at the moment, with Sarah currently trying to avoid the advances of dodgy drug dealer Damon Hay (Ciaran Griffiths).
The pair met in a hotel after Sarah and husband Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) fell out, and got very close, very quickly.
However, Sarah’s conscience took over before things got too far, and she soon realised that the man she had almost slept with was the same man that had been terrorising brother Nick Tilsley (Ben Price).
Since then, Damon has been determined to get Sarah into bed, promising that he will manage it before his mum’s birthday in June.
Will Sarah give into his charms, or will she stand her ground?
