She’ll soon be making her return to the big screen with two feature films in the pipeline.

Who’s that girl? Michelle Ryan looked almost unrecognisable as she grabbed some groceries from Planet Organic in North London on Friday

The TV actress looked gorgeous in a pair of flared skinny jeans that hugged her shape and teamed them with a red and white striped long-sleeve T-shirt.

Covering her shoulders from the early autumnal chill, Michelle draped a long pink scarf over her shoulders.

She finished the look with a pair of black ballet pumps and a cream bucket bag, her face natural and free of make-up.
