It's often been said that many actresses end up emulating their on-screen alter egos in real life.
And that seems to be what happened to Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine, who appeared to have adopted her character Fiz Stape's questionable fashion sense as she stepped out wearing an unflattering pink jumpsuit.
The 26-year-old actress was clearly hoping her outfit choice would see her rise in the fashion stakes, thanks to the current popularity of all-in-ones, but had the opposite effect in her pink satin number which she teamed with a white belt and black heels.

Satin overload: Jennie's outfit was very similar to co-star Vicky Binns' red dress
Jennie was attending the Manchester Pride Gala Dinner as she posed with co-stars including Vicky Binns, who plays Molly Dobbs in the ITV soap, who was wearing a similar satin outfit to her castmate.
But it was Corrie's on-screen lesbian couple, played by Sacha Parkinson and Brooke Vincent, who really were the fashion queens of the evening - looking stylish in minidresses and heels.
While there was some controversy when it was first announced there would be a lesbian storyline on Coronation Street, the teenage stars have since been praised for their handling of the subject.

And speaking recently, Sacha said she never had any doubt about the reception the storyline would receive.
She explained: 'The story isn’t designed as a scandal just to get viewers. it’s a really well-written, touching love story.
'I’m very comfortable with the story line, and we tried to make it as believable as possible.
