'Coronation Street' Catherine Tyldesley: 'I'm like Mr Bean with boobs'

By
Coronation Street's Catherine Tyldesley has revealed that she nicknamed herself "Mr Bean with boobs" due to her on-set cack-handedness.

The Weatherfield actress, who plays Eva Price, claimed that she has lost a fingernail, walked into a bar and "headbutted a fruit bowl" in a single week.

Speaking to Inside Soap, she divulged: "The other day we were filming in the Bistro, and he made me laugh so hard that I threw my head forward and headbutted a fruit bowl! I'm ridiculously clumsy.

"Just this week I've torn off a fingernail and bruised myself by colliding with the bar. I call myself, 'Mr Bean with boobs'."

Tyldesley also spoke about the arrival of on-screen grandmother Sue Johnston, who will be seen as Gloria Price from September.

"We're going to see where Eva gets her diva genes from, that's for sure," the star added. "Like Eva, Gloria speaks before she thinks all the time, so that's great fun.

"I love the dynamic they've created with our family, because now Stella (Michelle Collins), Leanne (Jane Danson) and Eva are all closer, and Gloria completes the set. Sue is a joy to work with."
