Hollyoaks fans were left speechless on Tuesday as Juliet Nightingale (Niamh Blackshaw) debuted her glamorous transformation.
Over the last few months, Juliet has drawn deeper into Jordan Price's (Connor Calland) drugs business, and now the teen has undergone a complete image overhaul as she continues a life of crime.
Since meeting drug boss Victor Brothers (Benjamin O’Mahony) the schoolgirl has been motivated to climb higher up the ladder in the County Lines drug dealing operation.
With Jordan behind bars, Victor asked Juliet to take over his patch during Wednesday's first-look episode on E4.
Victor told Juliet that in order to take on her new role she needed to update her image.
Later on in the episode, Juliet ditched her trademark side ponytail for a brunette bombshell lock.
Viewers at home were impressed with Juliet's sassy new look and rushed to compliment the youngster on social media.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Juliet looks awesome."
Another gushed: "At least Juliet has ditched the side ponytail – that's sooo 2005!"
A third posted: "Juliet's new look is fire!"
While a fourth posted: "Juliet looks amazing!"
Juliet's new look was first teased in the soap's New Year's Eve flash-forward episode last year, which saw the County Lines drug plot heavily featured as the village's teen characters and their families were all caught up in the storyline's devastating consequences.
Juliet called Victor at the end of the episode to tell him that she wants to take over Jordan's patch.
Fans are convinced that Juliet's decision will have a deathy consequence.
In Thursday night’s episode, Jordan told his colleague Sid Sumner that unless she’s careful, Juliet will "end up in a body bag".
The threat came after Juliet and Jordan fell out when the teenager ignored the drug dealer's instructions and ended up losing £3,000 worth of product.
Flocking to Twitter, fans immediately jumped on "body bag" revealing they were convinced the soap had just dropped a major clue about the identity of the NYE victim.
One wrote: "Juliet’s gonna be in the bodybag?"
"In a… Bodybag?," added another.
While a third tweeted: "That body bag foreshadowing from Jordan OMG."
The special flash-forward episode last year teased a major death as someone was left in a body bag.
The only clue was John Paul McQueen screaming in tears near the body.
Hollyoaks continues on Channel 4 on Thursday at 6.30pm followed by a first-look episode on E4 at 7pm
