'Coronation Street': Jennie McAlpine confirms Tyrone backlash

By and Amie Parker-Williams
Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine has told Digital Spy that the show's characters will turn against Tyrone Dobbs when he is falsely accused of domestic violence.

Tyrone (Alan Halsall) has a horrendous ordeal ahead in the coming weeks as vengeful Kirsty Soames reports him to the police, maliciously alleging that he is an abusive partner.

Kirsty's accusation will cause a stir on the street, but it seems that most of the local residents will be firmly on her side.

Watch our interview with Jennie McAlpine in the video below:


McAlpine, who plays Tyrone's lover Fiz Stape, told Digital Spy: "Fiz is obviously disgusted with Kirsty, but it doesn't surprise her. After being initially upset, she quite quickly wants to prove that Kirsty is the bad guy, but there's no-one believing Fiz on the street.

"I've had this before, you see - no-one believed me. I hope [that changes] and I'll say, 'Remember this happened last time, you all hated me and I didn't do anything wrong? Well this is the same, so next time anything like this happens, just assume that I haven't done anything wrong, because that's probably going to be the case!'"

She continued: "There's only a very close-knit team that believe Tyrone. It's only the people who know for sure, which is Tommy, Tina, Fiz, and possibly Kevin, but possibly not. So really there's just us three against the whole street, which includes Sally Webster!"

McAlpine added that she will miss working with co-star Natalie Gumede, who plays Kirsty, if her unstable character eventually gets her comeuppance.

She said: "Nat's been brilliant. She's brilliant at all the stuff that she does - I think she's fab. I don't know what will happen. She probably will have to get her comeuppance, but we'll see - that could happen in different ways."

Coronation Street airs Tyrone and Kirsty's dramatic wedding episodes next Monday (January 21) at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
