Emmerdale's dowdy Lydia Dingle star unrecognisable after glam makeover

EMMERDALE star Karen Blick looks worlds away from her dowdy Emmerdale character Lydia Dingle after undergoing a glam makeover.

Karen, 46, shared her new hairdo on her Instagram page which showed off her shoulder length hair with long layers and a wispy fringe.

She smiled as she posed for the selfie with the fresh cut at the hairdressers and her fans rushed to heap praise on the ITV soap star.

"What a lovely smile. Straight from the soul," wrote one fan.

Another added: "So pretty."

And a third said: "It looks fab Karen👏❤️."

The actress has played Lydia Dingle in the ITV soap since 2016, quickly becoming a fan favourite.

She first starred as Lydia Hart, a woman with a secret who went on to marry Sam Dingle.

Karen starred in one of the soap’s first special lockdown episodes and recently opened up about filming in the new socially distanced way.

“I think hugging people is another thing I will miss,” she said. 

“My morning routine used to be coffee, then the chat in the corridors then into the relaxation of the lovely make-up room. 

“There are lots of procedures everyone now has to follow. It is being taken very seriously.”

Karen added: “It will still be a fun place to work with all the banter and smiling in the corridors, and we are going to make the best of it. 

“We will be back and working, but staying safe.

“We were all so keen to get back filming, but we are mindful this is, of course, a serious situation in terms of health and safety and peoples well being, so that has been observed.”
