We’ve got so used to seeing Stacey happy (mostly) with Mark Fowler these days, we’d forgotten she’d lived a whole different life.
Remember when she was married to Bradley Branning? Son of Max. Who she cheated on with Max.
That’s the one. He died after falling off a roof back in 2010.
While Bradders was always a little bit beta male, living in the shadows of his virile father, we always had a soft spot.
And when we say ‘soft’, he was definitely in our Top Three Hottest TV Gingers list.
He looked so boyish and wholesome, but had a rather sexy temper on him that made his cheeks rouge.
In that there real life, Charlie is approaching his 30th birthday and a recent picture on his social media has proved he’s all grown up.
Gone are the trademark red locks and baby smooth cheeks; in their place are a shaved head, a MASSIVE beard – and a pair of black-rimmed spectacles.
Has he become a HIPSTER? That beard looks pretty incriminating…
Anyone else thing he shares a passing resemblance with comedian Frankie Boyle?
The shaven head is a relatively new look; Charlie still had a luscious head of hair when he appeared on Loose Women last year.
His changing appearance caused quite the stir then…
One Twitterer wrote: ‘Well Bradley looks grown up’.
Another went a step further, sharing:
“Well Bradley looks grown up’ tweeted one fan with a shocked face emoji while another impressed tweeter commented:
“Is is weird to fancy Bradley Branning from easterners watching loose women and finding myself being weirdly attracted to him wdf.”
Imagine what everyone is going to say now…
