She’s an Emmerdale stalwart as the fiery Mandy Dingle. 

Yet while she may be better known for her sassy one-liners as opposed to her fashion sense, actress Lisa Riley has revealed her beloved character is the unlikely style inspiration for a number of famous faces. 

The soap star, 46, has been leaving her fans in hysterics with her observations, most recently revealing that Susanna Reid had been spotted in a dress worn on the show.

After the Good Morning Britain host, 51, appeared on Wednesday’s episode in a blue leopard print dress, Lisa couldn’t help but notice there was a similarity to the item she’d donned on set that day. 

Taking to Instagram to share a side by side comparison snap, she penned: ‘LAUGHING today I came to work @itv @emmerdale noticed on tv…..it seems @susannareid100 has dressed the EXACT same way as Mandy Dingle….

‘I’m wearing the same dress for filming today @gmb #dress #leopardprint #laughing #today #emmerdale #itv

 

Double the dingle:  Susanna wasn't the only daytime star taking style inspiration from Mandy, with Lisa spotting that Holly Willoughby, 41, had worn a strikingly similar look on This Morning

Susanna wasn’t the only daytime star taking style inspiration from Mandy, with Lisa spotting that Holly Willoughby, 41, had worn a strikingly similar look on a 2020 episode of This Morning. 

Posing in the same pearl-trimmed black coat, Lisa revealed: ‘This has been the highlight today…on today’s @itv @thismorning the #style icon that is the beautiful @hollywilloughby has chosen a VERY similar outfit to Mandy Dingles Salon “Work Suit” in @emmerdale.

‘We could be a new girl group #thepearlyqueens I wouldn’t have thought #holly would be #shopping in Hotten for her.’

Looking a bit closer to home, Lisa then found a style twin on a different soap, noting that Kat Slater on EastEnders (played by Jessie Wallace) is also partial to leopard print. 

She quipped: ‘STRONG WOMEN. Someone just sent me this saying Mandy’s long lost sister lives in the Eastend of London sisters in another lifetime. 

‘I bet @phildale955 will be the PROUD DADDY  @jessie.wallace_official @emmerdale’.

Spot the difference: It wasn't just local talent that Mandy seemed to be having an influence on, with Lisa revealing that her leopard print looks had also inspired Kim Kardashian

Yet it wasn’t just local talent that Mandy seemed to be having an influence on, with Lisa revealing that her leopard print looks had also inspired Kim Kardashian. 

Lisa penned: ‘THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD!!! Could you imagine if it was true that THE @kimkardashian was Mandy Dingles long lost sister living in LA 

‘@emmerdale now that would be a very unique storyline… she’s obviously copying someone’s individual style, that’s for sure.’ 

Thanks for this gift: Another Hollywood star dragged into the fold was Ryan Reynolds, with Lisa spotting that the pair had worn the same Christmas jumper

She remarked: ‘A sentence we NEVER thought we would being saying this #christmas @vancityreynolds “RYAN REYNOLDS IS DRESSED UP AS MANDY DINGLE” @emmerdale #emmerdale.’

The final style icon wasn’t too unlikely given his flamboyant style, with Lisa sharing a picture of Mandy and Boy George both wearing black and white hats. 

She wrote: ‘So it seems that in Classic @emmerdale Mandy was really enjoying getting her style inspiration from the one and only @boygeorgeofficial Serving full “Dalmatian Fur” fake obviously #camp #boygeorge.’   

Lisa played Mandy Dingle between 1995 and 2001, and again from 2019. Earlier this year she took a brief break from filming after her grandmother passed away but returned to screens in July.
