Ellie, 21, who is best known for playing Faye in the long-running ITV show, looked stunning as she went make-up free at the appointment.

She smiled alongside the tattoo artist as she took to the studio for the tiny ribs inking to match with her friend Hannah.

The TV star lifted her shirt to reveal the tiny tattoo, the numbers 15 and 27 next to each other with a black heart in the middle.

The inking looked to be a nod to both Ellie and her friends’ birthdays, with Ellie born on March 15.

It comes after Ellie was spotted looking worlds away from her on-screen character after she posted a weightlifting video.

Taking to Instagram, the beautiful brunette took part in a series of intense workouts – and they’re certainly not for the faint-hearted.

Ellie showed off her gym versatility with her 200k followers on Wednesday morning, as she trained her legs, lower back and core, with a tiresome-looking deadlift.

Moments after finishing up, the star could be seen tracking her progress since lifting – rising from 60kg to an impressive 100kg.

Taking to the apparatus like a seasoned pro, Ellie is later seen mastering the overhead press – an intense exercise that requires holding a weight from above while seated or standing.

Just last month, Ellie was pictured looking worlds apart from the soap character again, as she celebrated her birthday.

The actress looked stunning with wavy hair and rocked a stylish, green beret to ring in her 21st birthday.

Surrounded by family and friends at Manchester City‘s prestigious Etihad Stadium, Ellie changed into a strapless and sparkly silver mini dress.

The celebrations also coincided with the penning of a new contract with ITV.

Her new deals means she will be sticking around on the Cobbles for at least another year after bosses asked her to stay on following the exit of two characters.
