'Coronation Street' Brooke Vincent 'blessed' by Kenya trip - pics

By
Coronation Street's Brooke Vincent has said that her recent trip to Kenya has been life-changing.

The Weatherfield actress, who plays Sophie Webster, filmed an ITV documentary with co-stars Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw), Sue Cleaver (Eileen Grimshaw) and Ben Price (Nick Tilsley).

Posting pictures on Twitter, the 20-year-old gushed: "Feel so lucky to witness the things I have, never mind be a part of it.

"I've been here a week and seen and learnt more than I probably will ever do."

One report last week claimed that Vincent broke down while presenting the one-off programme, which aims to raise awareness of HIV in the poverty-stricken East African country.

The star, calling on more support from the UK, added: "People need to realise that these people live a life of major poverty.

"Yet I have not met one person without a smile on their face! All I can say is I will never take things for granted ever again."
