But on Monday, Rachel revealed she had returned to work on the Channel 4 show, and had brought baby Noa along with her.

Before getting back into the studio, Rachel couldn’t resist posing outside a pretend Rovers Return and behind the bar of the Weatherfield pub with Noa, just had she had done with her first daughter Maven when she was little.

Sharing snaps of both daughters visiting the famous soap pub, Rachel captioned the selection: “Spot the difference. One mini me, one mini Pash!

“Back to Countdown from mat leave today, nice to be back and this just had to be repeated (22 months later) in the Media City foyer.”

Rachel looked great in the pictures, wearing black skinny jeans and an off-white jumper, while little Noa looked adorable in a mustard-yellow romper.

Her fans were loving the snaps, with one writing in the comments: “Stunning picture so cool an cute.”

Another added: “i’m well jel. big corrie fan too!”

A third shared: “That’s class that is. Top baby spamming Rachel.”

Rachel and Pasha, 41, met on the 2013 series of Strictly Come Dancing and they began dating once the show ended and after Rachel’s separation from first husband, Jamie Gilbert.

The couple announced they were expecting their first child in May 2019 before they married in Las Vegas that June.

Maven was born in the December, and Noa followed almost two years later in November last year.
