Coronation Street star Jack P. Shepherd has revealed that he is keen to film more scenes with the show's new recruit Paula Lane.

The actor - who plays twisted David Platt - explained that he has enjoyed watching Lane's portrayal of Becky McDonald's irresponsible half-sister Kylie Turner in recent months.

Speaking to the Inside Soap Yearbook 2011, Shepherd commented: "I'd love to do more with Paula Lane, who plays Kylie. I have had one scene with her in The Rovers.

"She's a great little actress and the character is a breath of fresh air. It would be good to work together more."

He continued: "I think Paula has settled in really well. I was watching her first few scenes and she's very good, but she's worried that everyone is going to hate her because she's a bad character. I've been a bad boy for over five years though, and I don't get any stick from viewers.

"If anything, people love to hate the baddies. So I told her not to worry about it. She's the spitting image of Katherine Kelly, who plays Becky, as well. It was a really great bit of casting."

Lane recently claimed that Kylie is "a very mixed-up girl" and "misunderstood". Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
