Coronation Street Bernie star looked completely different back in Casualty days

Jane Hazlegrove has certainly made an impact since joining Coronation Street this year as Bernie Winter.

The Coronation Street cast member has caused havoc as Gemma Winter's mum on the cobbles – with her schemes including trying to sell fake pregnancy tests.

Bernie is known on the ITV soap for her long blonde locks and colourful dress sense.

However, the look is miles away from how Jane, 51, used to look when she appeared in BBC hospital drama Casualty.

In this role, Jane rocked much shorter cropped locks in her role as Kathleen 'Dixie' Dixon.

The actress played Dixie from 2006-2016, however she also appeared in the show earlier this year.

Paramedic Dixie was known as a 'larger than life' character who didn't care what people thought about her.

She was also hot-headed and opinionated, and fought for what was right.

Dixie was also married to man, despite being gay.

She tried to hide her homosexuality from her father, but he found out on his deathbed.

As well as Corrie and Casualty, Jane has also had many other TV roles.

This includes various roles in police drama The Bill as well as several roles in fellow BBC hospital drama Holby City.

Jane's Corrie character Bernie is set for some drama in the coming weeks of the soap.

She will be taken hostage by evil Kel Hinchley (Joseph Alessi) after she finds out that he sexually abused her son Paul Foreman (Peter Ash).

Jane recently became emotional while on ITV's Lorraine when talking about the abuse storyline.

She told Lorraine Kelly that Peter "really worked so hard" for the scene, and admitted: "I love that family so much."

The actress added: "The consequences of that are not going to be great, and not just for poor old Paul and everything he’s buried. It just ripples through the entire family forever."

Coronation Street returns to ITV on Monday, airing at 7:30pm and 8:30pm.
