Corries Laura Neelan star Kel Allen poses with co-stars after addressing rumours shes 28

Coronation Street's Kel Allen looked worlds away from her character Laura Neelan as she posed with her co-stars over the weekend.

Taking to Instagram, the actress, whose character Laura was recently tragically killed off on the cobbles, shared a collection of snaps with Millie Gibson, who plays Kelly Neelan, and Georgia Taylor, who plays Toyah Battersby, at a fun work event.

Kel looked glamorous in a pair of leather-look trousers and a cropped silk shirt, while Millie opted for an all-white outfit and Georgia wore a polka dot playsuit.

The actress captioned the snaps, which also included Imran Habeeb star Charlie De Melo, with: "Charlie’s Angels! We love you @charliedemelo," followed with a heart and angel emoji.


It comes after Kel was forced to address rumours that she is 28 earlier this month on social media.

Only recently, ITV soap fans have been speculating over the actress' age after it was reported that she was in her 20s and born in the early 90s.

The actress has now cleared up the rumours and explained that she has been confused for Paralympian Kelly Allen, who is 29.


Taking to Twitter, one soap fan wrote: "For those who watch #Corrie, I just found out that the woman who plays Laura (Kelly's mum) is apparently 28 in real life. Surely that's not right? I'm not saying she looks old but I thought she was older than that! Like my age or something."

To which Kel replied: "Don’t believe everything you read love! I was 28 many moons ago and I’m proud to have been around the block a few times."

According to Mirror, the actress also said: "Some fun facts about moi… I’m not 28, throw on another decade! I’m proud to be rocking it for the nana crew! FYI… I’m not a nana, just close to middle age. It’s a northern expression of speech.

"Let’s do the math, Laura would have given birth to Kelly at the age of 11. I wasn’t born in London, proud of my northern roots! I was born in Sept, not in May.

"I never lost an arm in a canoeing accident… touch wood! I’m not an Olympian… if only! The moral of the story… don’t believe everything you read! Happy Sunday to you."

Only recently Kel's character Laura tragically died on the ITV soap from stomach cancer and in a bid to protect her daughter Kelly, played by Millie Gibson, she pretended that she had murdered her father, Rick.
