So THIS is the reason why Michelle Keegan dyed her hair bright blonde

Michelle Keegan shocked her fans when she debuted new blonde hair last week.

Known for her long, dark, glossy locks, everyone thought it was the beginning of a 'new' Michelle, but as it turns out, it's for a new TV role.

The former Corrie star's makeover is in preparation for a new ITV role which chronicles the life of legendary England football captain Bobby Moore, and Michelle is set to play his wife, Tina.

While on set, the actress teamed her new locks with a cream trench coat and PVC boots, adding a bit of 60s glamour to her make-up with large cat-eye flicks.

After the 1966 World Cup, Bobby Moore and his wife rose to fame and quickly became the UK's 'it' couple.

The three-part series is based on Tina's memoir, Bobby Moore: By The Person Who Knew Him Best, and will be filmed throughout the summer months.
