Coronation Street star Jane Danson has revealed that she is thrilled to be working closely with Michelle Collins on the set of the soap.

Next week's episodes of the Weatherfield drama feature a big plot twist as Danson's alter ego Leanne Barlow discovers that Rovers newcomer Stella Price is her biological mother.

Collins's character Stella, who made her debut on screen earlier this month, is forced to come clean with Leanne as the show favourite celebrates her 30th birthday at the pub.

Speaking about having Collins as her on-screen mum, Danson told All About Soap: "It's really interesting to work with someone when you know their stuff so well. I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the really meaty scenes, because these are two extremely feisty characters.

"A lot of people have said we've got similar face shapes and we have the same mannerisms too, so it'll be interesting to see if viewers pick up on the resemblance."

Coronation Street's shock Stella and Leanne twist first emerged in early May but was only officially confirmed by show bosses this week.
