The actress, who plays Nancy in the Channel 4 soap, debuted her brand new look via Twitter on 1 August, while Beyoncé showed off her shorter 'do a few days later.
Joking on Twitter last night, Jessica said: "Can only assume that Beyoncé saw my hair cut and thought 'I'll have a bit of that'. Right?"
Jessica shared her transformation with fans via a series of Twitter pictures from the salon chair. She was snapped showing off her new look out in London on Thursday (8 August). Earlier in the day she'd recorded an appearance on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff.
Loving the look, Jessica!
Jessica is just the latest star to go for the popular crop. Beyoncé, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Carey Mulligan are just some of the stars sporting shorter locks.
