Catherine decided to go make-up free, instead framing her face with reflective aviator shades.
She left her strawberry blonde locks in a straight hairdo as she captioned the sizzling post: ‘Romeo DONE. Get me on a bl**dy plane please @tompitfieldphotography’.
A day earlier on Wednesday’s edition of Steph’s Packed Lunch, host Steph McGovern asked the ex-Corrie star whether she would ever go back to the cobbles.
Catherine said: ‘I’ve been a fan since I was a little girl. Of course, at some point… I’m really enjoying doing different projects and, touch wood, I’m really busy at the moment but Corrie is so close to my heart.
Making a comeback? A day earlier on Wednesday’s edition of Steph’s Packed Lunch, host Steph McGovern asked the ex-Corrie star, 37, whether she would ever go back to the cobbles
‘If the opportunity came up in the future, absolutely.’
Catherine played Eva Price on the show from June 2011 until August 2018.
‘Eva has been such fun to play over the last seven years, and who knows, one day she might storm the cobbles of Weatherfield again. In the meantime I’m excited about the future, new acting projects, and spending time with my family.’
The character was not killed off, with the door open to a possible return.

Following her departure, she appeared as a contestant on the BBC’s iconic programme, Strictly Come Dancing last year,
She defended the dance competition’s first ever drag dance on the 2020 series, after more than 100 viewers complained.
Male professional dancers Johannes Radebe, Gorka Marquez and Giovanni Pernice had dressed in drag to perform a medley of hits from the musical Priscilla: Queen of the Desert on last Saturday’s show.
Slamming a viewer who claimed the ‘weird’ dance ‘confused their grandchildren’, Catherine fumed that they should plant their ‘homophobic complaints’ ‘in the mud’.
The Scarborough native also gushed that the routine was a ‘joy to behold’ and said it ‘lit up our screens’ following ‘a terrible year’.
Taking to Instagram, she angrily penned: ‘”Confused” their grandchildren my arse!!! These “complaints” are from homophobic massive t****s trying to train their kids/grandchildren up the same way.
‘Strictly is inclusive… of EVERYONE. EVERY human being has a right to be present AND represented.
‘Take you’re ridiculous homophobic complaints and plant them in some mud… maybe the rain will wash away your judgemental s***e.
‘Further more this entire routine and all dancers in it were a Joy to behold, talented beyond words and lit up our screens in what has been a terrible year for many. Stop putting fearful clouds in front of the brightest of stars!!!’
