ACTRESS Nadia Parkes transforms into kidnapped glamour model Chloe Ayling for a new drama series.
Our exclusive pictures show Nadia, 27, on set in Manchester wearing a beige dressing gown.
The BBC show is based on Chloe’s autobiography and follows her as a 20-year-old model in 2017 travelling from her South London home to Italy, supposedly for a shoot.
However, on arrival Chloe, now 26, was snatched by masked men, drugged, handcuffed, stuffed inside a bag and held captive for six days in a remote farmhouse.
She had been lured to Milan with fake promises of a lucrative photoshoot but a group calling itself The Black Death Gang demanded £250,000 and threatened to auction her on the dark web as a sex slave.
She was rescued by cops.
