Corrie star promises "twists" for Cheryl

Coronation Street newcomer Holly Quin-Ankrah has promised that there are surprises in store for her character Cheryl Gray.

The actress's alter ego was introduced as a new love interest for Lloyd Mullaney (Craig Charles) earlier this year. In a twist, however, producers later announced the casting of Will Thorp as Cheryl's husband Chris, a new bad boy for the Street.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo about Cheryl's future, Quin-Ankrah teased: "It's been a great storyline to go into and there's lots of great stuff in store.

"There are so many twists and turns it's exciting for me even to read the script, but it won't be as straightforward as people would imagine. There are relationship woes coming up with Chris who she's with now and turbulent times ahead. It's certainly worth watching."

The soap star, whose previous acting credits include Grange Hill, Rock Rivals and Shameless, added that she would never follow in Cheryl's footsteps by trying out lap-dancing.

She said: "I know girls who do it as a job and that's great but I've never fancied it myself. If you're body conscious it's not the best thing to do - and I am. I've got a very large bottom!" Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
