Paula Lane has confirmed that she is thrilled by the news that her Coronation Street character Kylie Turner is to marry David Platt in a surprise new storyline.

The actress first announced the shock pairing in a TV interview last week, promising that Kylie and David will be "a really good combination" on screen.

Speaking on today's This Morning about the twist, Lane explained: "I am really, really chuffed about this storyline. When it came about, I couldn't believe it. What the writers can come up with now, the material - it could be explosive."

She continued: "I'm yet to read the scripts, but I do have sources who have told me that [Kylie is] very much the driver in the relationship, which is good."

Meanwhile, asked how David's mum Gail will react to the relationship, Lane replied: "I have no idea - but I can't wait to see her face!"

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Lane is in the running for the 'Best Newcomer' prize at this year's National Television Awards. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
