Coronation Street star Alex Bain looked totally different sporting a facial hair transformation as he enjoyed cocktails with his girlfriend.

The Simon Barlow star headed to The Botanist for a meal and looked totally different from his cobbles persona as he sat with his arms folded on the tabletop.

The star is currently sporting a thin moustache and soul patch, along with a gathering of dark stubble under his chin.

His usual curly hair flopped over his forehead and down to the nape of his neck as Alex dressed to impress in a black button-up shirt decorated with graffiti patterns.

He added an Apple Watch and a few thin black bracelets to the ensemble while tucking into a tasty looking hanging lamb kofta and a huge bowl of chips.

Captioning a series of snaps posted to his Instagram Stories, Alex wrote: “Hanging lamb kofta! Much cool!”

He later enjoyed a passionfruit cocktail and penned: “What a way to end a lovely meal with my girl!” adding in a series of loved up emojis and tagging in partner Mollie Lockwood.

The Corrie star was left baffled, however, when a birthday cake was delivered to his table – five months before his actual birthday.

He joked: “Apparently it’s my birthday now! Thank you @thebotanistuk for my 5 month early birthday wishes!”

It comes after Alex fell victim to a grisly injury which saw him in hospital, pictured in a wheelchair at the A&E department of Blackburn Hospital.

Sporting a medical boot, Alex attended the fracture clinic for his poorly ankle, telling fans at the time: “Update on the ankle. I’m at the fracture clinic having a check-up and X-Ray to see how it’s doing. I’ll keep you all updated!”

He then told his followers: “Quick update again! I have to go back in four weeks time to have it checked again, however they're pleased with the progress so all is well with me!

"Should be healed soon enough guys! Thanks for all your love and support!"
