The actress, who plays Kat Moon in the BBC One soap, also told the Sunday Mirror that the controversy surrounding the baby swap storyline had been good for the show.
Speaking of Kat getting her baby back from Ronnie Branning (Samantha Womack), she said: "We've just shot the scenes. There'll happier times for Kat and Alfie. But it probably won't stay too happy for long.
"This 'controversy' has done us good. If anything we've got more viewers out of it. Why should the show not push the boundaries? People need to chill out.
"A lot of people just jumped on the bandwagon and complained before the scenes even went on air."
The plot attracted 12,500 complaints from fans of the show.
