“Kirsty was a long time ago, but when you’re on a show as popular as Coronation Street, it never goes away completely.

“It’s one of my legacies, and I know as long as I play that role will always come up! It’s not a bad thing, but I think the daily recognition is no longer with me.

“This is a nice place to be as a jobbing actor who can transform into different people without being too closely connected to a character.”

I think my time there was wonderful but complete.

She added, “Would I go back to Corrie if they decided to get Kirsty out of jail? I think my time there was wonderful but complete. “
