As Amy, now played byNatalie Ann Jamieson, takes centre stage in a new Emmerdale storyline, Daily Star has taken a look back at some of Chelsea's glam snaps.

Red carpet glamour

Back in 2018, Chelsea attended the Inside Soap Awards and left onlookers with their jaws on the floor after she rocked up in a stunning red number.

Her dress featured a plunging neckline and a small slit up the front which exposed her toned legs to the crowd.

The kimono style ensemble had long open sleeves that stopped at her elbows as she held her award proudly.

She paired the look with strappy black heels and wore her long hair slicked back from her face.

Gorgeous in green

After September 2022 came and went, Chelsea shared a collection of pictures to commemorate what she had been up to.

Among the snaps, one picture stood out as she slayed in a bright green suit as she posed at the bottom of a large set of stairs.

She wore her long dark hair in a middle parting, slicked back and styled in a ponytail over her shoulders as she beamed from ear to ear with lashings of red lipstick.

Her stunning emerald green suit complemented her skin tone and elongated her legs as she placed one hand on her thigh.

She paired the two-piece with a crisp white shirt and a pair of pointed green heels, but the main event were the sleeves, covered in green feathers.

In the caption, Chelsea wrote: "September, you were f***ing joyous," with two heart emojis and a sparkle.

Black bodysuit

The former Emmerdale actress shared some snaps of her fun in the sun with one of her pals as they took a well deserved break in Palma.

Despite the heat, Chelsea stunned in a simple black turtleneck top paired with a dainty gold chain and a green cross body hand bag.

She wore her long dark hair in loose waves and embraced the holiday look as she flashed a winning smile to the camera.

Chelsea posed for the selfie with her pal as she held the camera out in front of their faces, her holiday glow completed with pop of red lipstick.

In the caption, Chelsea wrote: "Had a glorious few days […] we went all the way to Palma to eat the worst paella in a restaurant where the 'view' was a busy road, so then decided to go for a second dinner so that we could 'end it on a high'. And that's why you're my best friend," with a sparkle emoji.

West End beauty

The Emmerdale actress took part in the West End musical Waitress – and clearly loved every second of it.

When her time in the show came to an end, she took to Instagram to share her thoughts and thank her co-stars.

Halfpenny also added a picture of herself looking gorgeous in her blue waitress dress, which cinched in at the waist and showed off her hourglass figure.

Chelsea wrote a lengthy caption commemorating her time in the musical and reflected on the iconic character.

She began: "Ahhh, Waitress. What a wild ride those nine and a half months were. Experiencing a dream becoming a reality has been surreal to say the least […] I've never felt so proud of a job, ever. Proud that I was part of what I genuinely believed was a stunning show, performing alongside some of the most talented actors and musicians I've ever met […]."

Fans and friends alike flocked to the comments to shower the actress with compliments for her performance in the West End show and sent her "so much love," branded her "iconic" and told her they would "never forget her" in that role.

Strike a pose

In a sweet snap with her lover, Chelsea rocked her natural beauty as she cracked a smile for a quick selfie.

Her voluminous brunette locks cascaded over her shoulder as she held out the camera to snap a moment of the pair together.

Chelsea paid tribute to her partner James and gushed over his dedication to her throughout some tough times.

She told her followers that he had "remained in a relationship with her throughout losing her taste and smell," which she joked he "deserves a Blue Peter badge for".

Halfpenny branded herself "truly hideous" and called him "her hero, forever and always" before she wished him a "happy birthday week to the bae of all baes".

Emmerdale airs weeknights on ITV1 at 7.30pm
