Corrie’s Shobna Gulati poses as Katy Perry in sizzling photoshoot

Coronation Street’s Shobna Gulati, better known to viewers as Sunita Alahan, will have fans of the show gobsmacked when they see the photoshoot of the actress in the latest issue of Now magazine.

Why, you ask? Well, she’s only gone and done a Katy Perry, posing for racy shots almost identical to a topless shoot the Russell Brand-loving popstar did for Esquire magazine.

Despite looking stunning in a black satin girdle and strappy patent sandals, the 44-year-old admits that she used to lack the kind of confidence with her body the 26-year old seems to exude, saying: 'I think we've got a lot to learn from American women. They're just happy in their skin. Maybe if I looked all glammed up like Katy Perry, I'd be happy.'

Shobna first appeared as Sunita in the soap in 2001. She left in 2006 after her character discovered that her rotter of a husband Dev had carried out multiple affairs behind her back. But earlier this year her character returned and she and Dev have now buried the hatchet.
