Anna Friel's got a saintly new habit: Brit star dresses as a nun for Pushing Daisies

Head bowed modestly to the ground, her hands doing the sign of the cross and a white habit covering her glossy, brown hair, Anna Friel is unrecognisable in an upcoming episode of Pushing Daisies.

The English actress's undead character Charlotte 'Chuck' Charles wears a nun's costume as she goes undercover to solve the mystery behind a nun's death.

Friel's saintly appearance couldn't be more different from her Brookside character Beth Jordache, who helped her mother bury her murdered father in the back garden and enjoyed a lesbian kiss.

What a saint: Anna Friel taps into her puritanical side as she pretends to be a nun in Pushing Daisies

In the episode, from the second series of the hit U.S. comedy, Friel's character joins forces with love interest Ned (Lee Pace) to discover why a nun has died.

They visit Chuck's love rival Olive Snook (Kristin Chenoweth), who has quit working at the Pie Hole restaurant to live in a nunnery as she attempts to turn over a new leaf.

After one of the sisters dies in mysterious circumstances, she calls in Chuck - who ends up bringing Chuck - to help.

Seeking guidance: Anna and co-star Kristin Chenoweth look fetching in their habits

And what better way to sneak around a nunnery undetected than to don a habit and robe.

Discussing the episode, Pace said: 'The nuns are really funny.

'Mo Collins plays the dead nun in the nunnery episode. She plays this trash-talking nun, and she's funny, funny, funny. In that episode, we're having a good time with the gumshoe-solving-crimes.'

The episode will be screened on U.S. TV on October 15th and in the U.K. next year.

I heard that Kristin Chenoweth may not be back with the show after a couple of episodes in the new season. I don't know why they would let her go she is basically the heart and soul of Pushing. Sorry Anna. Does anyone know if this is confirmed? Please tell me it isn't so.
