Coronation Street star Gwen Taylor has admitted that adjusting to the fast-paced world of soap was a challenge.

The actress recently finished filming her role as Anne Foster, who was unmasked as the killer of her own son Frank in Monday's (March 19) dramatic episodes.

Taylor was last night (March 22) interviewed by Andrew Lancel, who played Frank, on Liverpool station Radio City and praised the Coronation Street cast for the performances they put in without rehearsal time.

"I'm going to remember the commitment that everyone had for the work," Taylor explained. "A lot of the women there had babies and young children, but everyone turned up on time and knew their lines - and I was so impressed by that.

"I had to up my game. I was used to having rehearsal time and discussion [before playing a scene], so I had to work hard."

Taylor added that members of the public have been eager to chat to her about Coronation Street and Frank's death in recent weeks.

"It's happened everywhere I go," she explained. "Most people have suspected me - I thought it would be more of a surprise!

"I tell you one thing, my stepson, who lives with us, has had so much flak from all his mates saying, 'Did she do it?' Would you believe, he lives in the same house and I didn't tell him! He's going to be furious that I didn't tell him!"

Coronation Street continues tonight at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV1.
