Sarah Harding shows no airs and graces as her face is battered with a 270mph blast of wind blown in the world's first high speed selfie photo booth.
The 33-year-old former Girls Aloud singer was the first person in the UK to trial the machine, which launches in Manchester today.
It follows reports that she has secured a second contract with Coronation Street following her four-episode stint on the soap due to air next month.
She said: "When I was asked to take part in the high speed selfie, I have to confess that I was a little nervous.
"But once I'd had a go, it was so much fun - I was literally blown away.
"I look like I've been dragged through a hedge backwards. It was good fun though."
The high speed selfie booth was created by Virgin Media to mark the roll-out today of its £3 billion fibre broadband network expansion.
