Sometimes once an actress has played a part for long enough, certain elements of the character stick with them.

Shrek: The Musical star Carley Stenson arrived for an interview on ITV's This Morning in London today wearing a hot pink dress.

Perhaps the 29-year-old was recalling her previous starring role in Legally Blonde: The Musical.

She dressed her look down by pairing her frock with a pair of white plimsolls and a fedora.

Carley added an extra splash of colour with bright red lipstick.

She looked in good spirits after her ITV appearance, stopping to pose for cameras before leaving.

Carley found fame playing Steph Cunningham in the Channel 4 series Hollyoaks.

She has since enjoyed a successful career on stage, playing Elle Woods in Legally Blonde: The Musical at the Savoy Theatre in 2011.

Carley took over the role from Susan McFadden, having played Elle's sorority sister Margot since 2010.

The actress admitted in an interview with MailOnline that she prefers acting on stage to her previous work on Hollyoaks.

'I just love how immediate the audience reaction is with theatre, you don’t get that with television,' she said.

'I would love to be able to develop a musical, to play a role that I had created.'

Stenson had strong support in the form of many of her ex Hollyoaks cast members, including proud boyfriend Danny Mac.

Danny told MailOnline: 'Carly’s the best thing to have ever happened to me,' he gushed.
