28 looks good on Alexandra Mardell.
The Coronation Street star – who plays Emma Brooker on the ITV soap – looked beautiful as she celebrated her 28th birthday with her fiancé, actor Joe Parker, with a trip away for a couple of days at a holiday cottage in the north.
Emma posed in the hot tub, holding a bottle of bubbly as her and her fiancé enjoyed their break away.
The couple – who got engaged earlier this year after moving in together at the start of 2020 – are celebrating Alexandra’s birthday at Rossendale Holiday Cottages, a luxury retreat between Blackburn and Halifax.
Alongside a bath emoji, she wrote alongside the snap: “Prune fingers pending.”
Alexandra looked amazing in a printed bikini as she held up her glass of Prosecco.
The day before, she had shared a photo of her enjoying a glass of fizz in their holiday cottage.
“Feeling bloody great at 28 #itsmabufffdayyyy,” she wrote alongside the string of photos, as she posed in a bold print dress.
Alexandra and Joe got engaged earlier this year, after their relationship blossomed through lockdown.
Alongside snaps of the big moment, she said: “Love locked down!!
“1000000 times yes! You make me so happy, my face hurts! Love you ridiculously. Future Mrs Parker.”
Whilst Joe wrote in his own post: “Went into lockdown with a girlfriend, came out with a fiancée.
“What a lucky man I am. Can’t wait to marry you @alexandramardell I love you.”
Alexandra loves playing Emma in the soap and she hopes she can continue doing so for a long time.
“I love playing Emma. I’d not done much comedy so I was a bit worried about her silly ways but I’ve really enjoyed it,” she told The Mirror.
“She has the best of both worlds now – sometimes she’s comedy, sometimes it’s tragedy.
“I am hoping there’s many more years for me and more to come from Emma.”
However, on her first day, she admitted she was worried about calling her castmates their character names rather than their real ones.
“I thought, ‘Please don’t call Sue Nicholls, Audrey’. I was there on Google trying to make sure I’d got everyone’s name,” she said.
“Helen Worth [who plays Gail Platt] told me to take my time and that if I said something wrong, it didn’t matter. That was really lovely. She’s a Corrie icon and I was starstruck.”
