Diana Vickers has been photographed bearing an uncanny resemblance to Coronation Street's iconic character Deirdre Barlow as she rocked a pair of huge glasses.

The 29 year old, who looks completely unrecognisable to her days on TV, was seen walking down the street to a recording studio in London on Wednesday.

The X Factor star, who was a semi-finalist on the show in 2008, donned some yellow-tinted oversized sunglasses, which she paired with a bright red lipstick, making her look the spitting image of a young Anne Kirkbride.

Anne was known for her incredible giant glasses while playing her on-screen character Deirdre on the popular ITV soap opera between 1972 and 2014, before her tragic death in 2015 after a battle with breast cancer. She was even nicknamed 'Miss Sexy Specs' during her 42 years on the programme.

Clearly taking inspiration from the star, Diana wore the retro-inspired outfit, complete with a white turtleneck shirt with a cream jumper and houndstooth flared trousers.

She completed the look off with some red pumps and a knee-length brown leather coat alongside a cream and brown Gucci handbag that she draped over one shoulder.

The star, who styled her made down into loose waves, kept the accessories to a minimum for her outing as she donned a pair of large gold hoop earrings while leaving her hands bare of any bracelets or rings.

It comes after Diana recently cheekily encouraged her fans to masturbate during the coronavirus pandemic.

Diana rewrote the lyrics to Dua Lipa’s hit song, One Kiss, to encourage her fans to masturbate while they were staying in their houses.

In a video as her pal Jonie played the piano, Diana sang the hit song but changed the lyrics from: "One kiss is all it takes / Fallin' in love with me" to: "One kiss is all it takes / So please just masturbate".

She sang: "It's been some days of quarantining, and life is slowly losing meaning, I got all my exes in my inbox, they're all horny and keep hitting me up."

She added: "If there's a virus in you, don't f**king come close to me, it's really not what I need, I won't be tempted with moves and your nudes."
