Vincent praises Corrie chastity plot
Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent has revealed that she is thrilled with her new chastity storyline.

The actress's character Sophie Webster was recently seen agreeing to a sex ban following discussions with her boyfriend Ben Richardson, a devout Christian.

Vincent has now praised the ITV1 soap's producers for using the new plot to challenge stereotypes about religious people.

Speaking to Celebs On Sunday magazine, she explained: "It's different, isn't it? We all have a stereotypical view of a Christian, but Lucien Laviscount, who plays Sophie's boyfriend Ben, is quite hot, and you don't really think of religious people like that, so maybe it'll make religion cool.

"It shows you don't have to be a geek or be all 'religion, religion, religion' to be a Christian."

The 16-year-old added that she would like Sophie's behaviour to spiral out of control in a future storyline.

She said: "I think she should get married and have five kids, including triplets or something stupid, and then get them all took off her because she's gone off the rails. That would be fun." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
