O'Brien: 'Right decision to quit Corrie'

Tina O'Brien as Bex Fisher in Waterloo Road


Tina O'Brien has admitted that her decision to quit Coronation Street was the right one.

The actress departed her role as Sarah-Louise Platt in December 2007 and has since gone on to appear on Strictly Come Dancing and Waterloo Road. Speaking to What's On TV, O'Brien insisted that although it was a hard decision to make, she was glad that she had left when she did.

"Leaving Corrie was the hardest decision I ever made, but it was the right one," she said. "I'm really glad I've had the opportunity to do different things. I still watch the show occasionally and get sucked in instantly."

She continued: "I'm currently doing the Strictly tour with my dance partner Jared Murillo - he has become a great friend and we are like a brother and sister gone wrong!"

Discussing what she would like to do next, the 27-year-old added: "After that a film would be lovely or maybe a period drama. I am looking forward to more acting roles this year, so bring it on!"

Waterloo Road continues on Wednesday at 8pm on BBC One.
