Ghadie today (May 24) told Digital Spy: "I've just signed until September next year, so I'll definitely be here until then. After that, who knows? But I've got no plans to leave at the moment."

The 29-year-old has been part of the Coronation Street cast since 2000, when she was initially signed up on a three-month guest contract.

Reflecting on her early days at the programme, Ghadie added: "I thought I'd do my three months and then I'd be off. I was a jobbing actress when I joined and was really pleased to have a job for three months. I never imagined I'd still be here now."

Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor), Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster) and Michelle Collins (Stella Price) are also thought to have recently secured new Coronation Street deals.
