Emmerdales Leanna star Mimi Slinger sends fans wild with brunette hair transformation

However, Mimi later explained on her Instagram Story that her brunette hair transformation was in fact a wig as she clarified with: "It was just a wig – still a blonde for all you asking haha."

Soap fans will recall that Mimi's character Leanna was brutally murdered by Meena Jutla on Emmerdale last year.

Only recently, Leanna's name has been mentioned on the ITV soap due to Meena's explosive court case in April where it was revealed that she had been sentenced to a minimum of 75 years in prison.

Emmerdale fans bid farewell to Leanna after shocking scenes in July during a gruesome confrontation with Meena.

At the time, Mimi admitted she was “shocked” when she finally read her last scenes, despite knowing she was leaving in December 2020.

“I had taken the decision to leave the Dales and I was so looking forward to hearing how the producers were going to engineer my exit,” she said.

“I was so excited to be given the opportunity to be challenged and show my acting abilities.”
