Vincent discussed the new character with The Mirror, saying: "Maddie shakes things up, she's very much a Kylie Platt or Becky McDonald character but a lot worse.

"She's very demanding and hard to read – you're intrigued by her. I think she's a good match for Sophie, who stands her ground with her.

"They're both feisty and want to get one over on each other. Sophie likes her because she's naughty."

The storyline will see Sophie meeting homeless Maddie on Christmas Day when she goes to work in a soup kitchen. Her mum Sally, played by Sally Dynevor, is said to take an instant disliking to her daughter's new love interest.

Vincent added: "Sally doesn't really want to come to the soup kitchen but Sophie makes her. When we go there she's like: 'Oh look at the grateful faces,' but Maddie comes in and wrecks that.

"She pushes Sally's face in a trifle and they get off to a really bad start. We go back to the soup kitchen and things keep happening, such as Sally's bag ­going missing."

The 21-year-old, who has been in the soap since she was 11, said that she was happy to see her character's new romance develop.

"I think all three of Sophie's girlfriends have been very different. Sian was Sophie's first love, then she had more of a grown up relationship with Jenna.

"I think she's praying for the third time lucky with this one."
