Her trademarks locks hung loosely down her shoulders and she showed off her natural beauty with minimal makeup.

The 17-year-old actress was seen posing happily with her co-star, Erin Palmer, who is currently playing Ella Richardson on the soap.

“Filming the titles,” she gushed in the caption, followed by a smiley face.

Fans were quick to respond in the comments and compliment the star on her gorgeous makeover.

“gorgeous !!! and double gorgeous in the last pic !!!” said one fan

“beautiful,” said Ela's co-star Ruby O'Donnell, who plays Peri Lomax in the Channel 4 soap.

A third chimed in: “You are so very beautiful,” as a fourth penned” “GORGEOUS!”

Leah was recently involved in a dramatic storyline which involved Mason Chen-Williams (Frank Kauer) uploading pictures of her unconscious online.

A frustrated Mason got involved in a game of Never Have I Ever, which led to embarrassment for him when Leah mocked him for being a virgin during a party.

A drunken Leah collapsed on a nearby bed without noticing Mason was nearby and the teen then took photos of an unconscious Leah and uploaded them onto an online forum.

After he was confronted by Charlie Dean for trying to make a move on Ella, Mason deflected by insisting he'd slept with Leah instead.

Elá-May recently explained to Inside Soap that Leah will face a backlash over the photos even though she's done nothing wrong.

"Leah and Ste have already had conversations about making the right choices, especially when it comes to drinking, and it's as if she's ignored everything they talked about," the actress said.

"But, he also reminds her that this will eventually all blow over and become last week's chippy paper."
