Former Coronation Street actress Alexandra Mardell has been celebrating her hen do with a fun-filled weekend away with her bridal party.
The 29 year old actress, who portrayed Emma Brooker in the ITV soap for over three years, is set to tie the knot with fiancé Joe Parker later this year, and recently jetted off to Lanzarote with her close pals ahead of the nuptials.
Alexandra gave her fans a sneak peek of the celebrations on Instagram and shared two photographs, one of which showed her standing by a swimming pool and posing.
The bride-to-be sported white flared jeans and a feather crop top in the photo, along with a veil and a beaded clutch bag with 'I do!' on it.
The second snap showed Alexandra's personalised veil, which had 'The Future Mrs Parker' printed across it in metallic pink writing. She wore the white veil with a leopard print hat complete with silver diamanté detailing.
Alexandra and her friends stayed at the swanky Villa Paraiso in Lanzarote, which boasts 10 bedrooms, two swimming pools, a BBQ area, 10 bathrooms and a luxury hot tub. Guests can also enjoy massages and have meals cooked by a private chef at the incredible villa.
"Mrs P to be! THE BEST weekend with THE BESTEST people," Alexandra excitedly captioned the post.

Her followers flocked to congratulate her and wish her well ahead of her upcoming wedding, with fellow soap star Kimberley Hart-Simpson saying: "Go on gal," with four red heart emojis.
Briony Aston, wife of Corrie star Sam Aston, said: "Gorgeous bride to be," while another follower said: "Good luck hun x x x".
Alexandra announced her engagement to partner Joe in April 2021. The pair had been dating for a few months when lockdown happened in 2020, prompting them to take the plunge and move in together.
As the end of lockdown approached, Joe decided to pop the question to Alexandra in the pair's kitchen. He previously explained to OK! how he had originally planned to propose in Paris but due to travel restrictions he proposed at home instead.
Sharing her excitement about getting hitched, Alexandra told OK!: “I’m so excited, I think it’ll be lovely. It’ll be weird and nice to have the same name and to be able to call Joe my husband. I keep calling myself “Future Mrs Parker”. It sounds so mature.
“I can’t believe we’re at the age where we’re getting married and all our friends are having kids. Where does the time go?”
Whether they have plans to start a family, she said: “We definitely want to have a family, but we’ll wait a bit longer before having any kids.”
