Soap stars then and now!

The years have been kind to these famous soap stars!

These are our favourite soap stars
Ever wondered what happened to some of soap land’s biggest stars? Do you remember when these famous faces were on TV the first time around? From EastEnders to Coronation Street and Hollyoaks these are our favourite soap stars then and now! Before and after they made the big time on primetime TV!

Now an award winning actress, Anne Reid got her first big break playing Valerie Tatlock in Coronation Street – the world’s longest-running TV soap! Here she can be seen marrying Ken Barlow (a.k.a William Roache) on the soap in 1962!

Before she was voted FHM’s sexiest woman 2015, Michelle Keegan played Tina McIntyre in Corrie!

One of Coronation Streets longest running stars, William Roache who plays Ken Barlow was in the soap back in the 60s! He’s hardly changed at all!

You gotta love her! Denise Welch was amazing in Corrie and became a household name thanks to her fab storylines and no nonsense character!

Everyone remembers Jason Donovan’s iconic Neighbours character from the 80s right?! Scott and Charlene’s romance captivated the nation!

Natalie Cassidy grew-up playing Sonia Fowler in EastEnders, but she’s hardly changed at all over the years!

Jack Ryder had some brilliant storylines in EastEnders playing the role of Jamie Mitchell through the 90s, but today he does more directing than acting!

Christmas EastEnders’ specials would not have been the same without Letitia Dean, aka Sharon Mitchell! She’s pretty much grown up on the hit show and now she’s back AGAIN!

Patsy Palmer had some of Walfords best ever storylines and Bianca was one of our favourite Enders characters. She’s aged amazingly well don’t you think for a working mum!

Ahh Hollyoaks heartthrob Will Mellor had us all cooing in the 90s! Who remembers him in the Channel 4 soap?

There would be no EastEnders if it wasn’t for Kat and Alfie, and Jessie Wallace plays the part of Kat perfectly! In the last 13 years the actress has hardly changed from her on-screen look to today’s red carpet! She even still wears the same necklace!

You remember Russell Crowe in Neighbours right? Exactly – who does! The heartthrob actually started out in the Australian soap before making it big in Hollywood.

James Alexandrou became a household name playing Martin Flower from a young age. He’s since been a TV presenter and appeared on the stage!

Nick Pickard has been in and out of Hollyoaks for over a decade but he was one of the original cast! If you grew up in the 90s then you will definitely remember Nick’s up and down’s on the hit show.
