Is That You Sunita? Shobna Gulati Looks Sharp In Leather

It's time to swot up on Shobna Gulati aka Sunita outta Corrie! The actress, who's just been killed off the cobbles in a blaze which saw the iconic Rovers Return burn to the ground, took to the This Morning sofa in a surprisingly on-trend number.

Perhaps it's because we're used to seeing her in character, but we didn't realise this one was so stylish. Loving the leather, loving the red jeans, loving the dark nail polish, just darn loving it all.

Talking about her Coronation Street departure last year, the 46-year-old Loose Women panellist said, "I have loved playing Sunita but, having played the role originally from 2001 to 2005 and then returning to Corrie four years ago, I really feel the time has come for me to focus on other aspects of my career.

"I had always told myself I would see my son through school and I have done that. Comedy writing has long been a passion of mine and the commitment to a show like Corrie is huge and doesn't really leave enough time to concentrate on other projects. I'd love to be able to combine my writing and acting career in the future."

Flippin' heck this one's full of surprises, who knew?!
