Here’s your first look at Delta Goodrem as Olivia Newton-John in upcoming biopic

We had to do a double take!

Delta Goodrem has shared the first official image from her latest project, the upcoming biopic Olivia Newton-John: Hopelessly Devoted To You.
Taking to Instagram, the 32-year-old posted a photo of herself recreating what is arguably Olivia Newton-John’s most iconic look -- ‘Sandy’ in Grease. Wig, leather pants and all!
“Nothing could ever compare to the one & only Olivia,” she captioned the pic.
“One of the highlights of my life, to walk in the footsteps of my idol in this magnificent celebration of her journey. Olivia Newton-John: Hopelessly Devoted To You coming in 2018 ❤️”

Do you see the similarity?
Fans were quick to comment on the singer-songwriter’s post, sharing their excitement for the Channel Seven feature.
“This is incredible. Grease is one of my all time favourite movies and I couldn't think of anyone else but you that would truly fit this role. So excited!” one wrote, while another said: “I’m dying to see this. Hope your Danny is as good as Travolta 👌🙏👍🏻”
A third noted: “LOVE! Perfect choice for the role 🌈🍭”
The two-part miniseries will be a moving tribute to the iconic actress’ life, following her journey from Australian sweetheart to international superstar.
Olivia Newton-John recently announced that she’s battling breast cancer, which has spread to her back or ‘metastasized to the sacrum.’ The heartbreaking news comes 25 years after she was first diagnosed with the disease.
Olivia’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, 31, previously revealed that her superstar mum will be using both natural remedies and modern medicine to combat the disease.
"She will be using medicine that I often talk about," the singer and actress wrote on Instagram. "CBD oil! (Cannabis has scientifically proven properties to inhibit cancer cell growth) and other natural healing remedies plus modern medicine to beat this."

Chloe, who recently moved to the US state of Oregon to start a business in marijuana farming with fiancé James Driskill, also vowed to join in the fight against the "insidious" disease.
"Cancer is the disease of our generation and it is part of my and my mother's quest to beat this insidious monster,” she wrote. “We both love you all, and anyone fighting this disease you can beat it. Look for natural remedies as well as what modern medicine can offer."
"My mom is so powerful she will beat this in no time," she added. "All my love to you. And I wish you health wealth and happiness."
We continue to wish Olivia all the very best in her recovery.
