Coronation Street newcomer Paula Lane has admitted that she is surprised by how fans have been comparing her character to superbitch Tracy Barlow.

Lane's alter ego Kylie Turner first appeared on screen back in August, and has since been causing havoc for her half-sister Becky McDonald (Katherine Kelly) and other Weatherfield favourites.

Speaking to Inside Soap, Lane confessed that some viewers think Kylie is even more wicked than Tracy, who is currently serving a 15-year jail sentence for murder.

The actress explained: "People have been saying that Kylie is worse than Tracy, but I think that might be taking it a little too far at the moment - after all, Kylie hasn't killed anyone… yet!"

She continued: "My initial contract was until December and I've just been given another six months, so it'll be interesting to see how they are going to work it with Tracy being back.

"Two evil characters paralleling each other might be too much, though, so maybe they'll keep them apart. But I'm sure Kylie will be a thorn in Becky and Steve's sides for a long time to come."

Coronation Street's series producer Phil Collinson recently confirmed that Tracy will make her forthcoming comeback on Christmas Eve. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
