Brooke Vincent has revealed that she has yet to fall in love, and that she puts it down to her young age.

The Coronation Street actress, who plays Sophie Webster in the soap, turns 19 today, and said that she is too busy for a relationship.

She told The Mirror: "I've never been in love. I think I'm too young. I'm busy doing my work, doing my own thing. I'll just be focusing on my career until the right one comes along."

Vincent became one half of Coronation Street's first lesbian couple with Sacha Parkinson, who plays Sian Powers.

Speaking about her friendship with Parkinson, she said: "Sacha and I have so much fun. We're best friends so working together is such a laugh, especially when things go pear-shaped. Just the other day we did a scene where she fell over and I kept taking the mickey out of this hilarious face she pulled when she was on the ground.

"I kept copying her and we were in such hysterics laughing we had to stop filming and everyone just stared at us like we were weirdos. People say we have our own language because we speak so fast no-one can understand, or say one word and crack up."

Vincent added that she doesn't consider herself as glamorous as her on-screen sister Helen Flanagan.

She recalled: "I was out and about and this guy was on his phone. He stopped because he recognised me and said to his mate on the phone 'You'll never guess who is here! You know that fit one from Corrie?'

"Well I thought that was so sweet! But then he said: 'Well you know her, the fit one, well it's not her, it's her sister.' I get used to it. And it was a while back."

On her future ambitions, she said: "I'd love to be like Anna Friel and go to Hollywood. I'd like to be remembered for my lesbian storyline like Anna, because that helped pave the way for her.

"I'm not worried about being typecast though. I'd love to go to Hollywood and do a film like the romcoms Jennifer Aniston is in. That would be a dream!"

Brooke Vincent reportedly had to break up a row outside a Manchester club during her 19th birthday celebrations last night.
