Shawly Not

‘SHE was the Corrie stunna who had been engaged to every C-list celeb around – but marriage and a career after soaps have not been kind to Tracy Shaw.

And they lived happily ever after…

The red-tops are shocked to see the ”telly beauty” turn up to open a new Kwik Save store in east London covered from head to toes in bruises.

”The former Coronation Street star, whose marriage has hit the rocks, didn’t even try to disguise the marks on her ribs, arms and legs,” reports a shocked Star.

And one onlooker told the paper: ”I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much bruising on one person.”

The Sun claims that Kwik Save were so disappointed with Tracy’s ”unglamorous” appearance that they considered cutting down her £5,000 fee.

In the end, they relented after her agent Peter Charlesworth explained that she had a viral infection and had also had a serious accident when she collided with scenery in her play, The Blue Room.

But, as the Sun says, ”when a budget supermarket like Kwik Save tells you you’re not looking your best, you know you’ve got problems”.

The paper has sent the 29-year-old a bunch of flowers to cheer her up, but she probably won’t enjoy the description of her in this morning’s edition any more than the pictures.

”In a matter of months, the former Corrie star has gone from top theatre totty to looking a shadow of her old self,” it says.

She appeared ”bruised, puffy-faced and with her beautiful hair in poor condition”, it says, ”wearing grotty shorts and a white vest that had to be clipped back to fit her body”.

But it is not all bad news for Tracy’s many fans – she did give us all a glimpse of her old self by flashing her knickers at the cameras.
