Her character Sophie Webster will be left wondering whether she is paralysed next week after being hit by a car during a disastrous night out with best friend Ryan Connor.
To prepare for the scenario, Vincent has visited community support officer Jamie Rhind, who lost the use of his legs after diving into shallow waters and suffering spinal injuries at the age of 19.
Speaking to the Scotsman about her experience with Rhind, Vincent confessed: "It has been really hard and, for me personally – it's been so restraining on what you can actually do.
"You can't put socks on or anything. I just don't know how people cope."
Sophie's storyline was first leaked back in August.
Fans will be left to wonder whether the young shop worker can recover from her accident, or whether she will be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life.
