Emmerdale’s Gabby Thomas actress Rosie Bentham looks unrecognisable with new blonde hair


EMMERDALE actress Rosie Bentham has undergone a stunning hair transformation and now looks unrecognisable.

The 20-year-old actress – who plays Gabby Thomas in the ITV soap – shared a selfie showing off her new look on her Instagram account.

Rosie has gone blonde and ditched her brunette locks
The star said she was ‘bored of the dark side’

Posing on her Story for her 39.2k followers to see, Rosie wrote over the photo: “Was bored of the dark side,” followed by emojis of a blonde girl.

Her new blonde hair looked stunning as she pouted for the snap and looked directly into the camera lens.

Wearing her locks down and straight, her hair just passed her shoulders.

On top of her new do she wore a pair of chunky black sunglasses.

Rosie, who celebrated her 20th in August, appeared to go without make-up for the occasion.

The star looks very different in the snap to how viewers are used to seeing her as Gabby on the soap.

Gabby has hair of a similar length but is a brunette.

Rosie has starred as the character since 2016 and over the years has had a few different hairstyles but has always remained a brunette.

It could potentially mean Rosie may have to wear a wig as her co-star Samantha Giles had to do back in May.

Samantha, who plays Bernice Blackstock, explained how real-life hairstyle changes can impact the character – resulting in her having to come back to the soap wearing a wig.

Until hairdressers on set could comeback amid Covid, she had to do her own hair but says she couldn’t so opt for a wig instead.

The star explained to Metro.co.uk: “I’ve got very very thick, wiry frizzy hair! I can’t do it myself.

“I just can’t do it!”

Down to the character being a hairdresser, it was crucial her hair looked neat, says the actress hence why she opted for the wig.

On Emmerdale currently Rosie’s character Gabby is struggling with her pregnancy journey.

From the very moment Gabby discovered she was pregnant, she’s faced hell from Jamie (Alexander Lincoln), who made things perfectly clear their night together was a drunken mistake.

The character also has a build-up of stress so viewers believe after she collapsed in recent episodes she will tragically lose her baby.

Rosie celebrated her 20th birthday three weeks ago
