Corrie actress worries about receiving abuse
Coronation Street star Zoe Henry has revealed that she expects to receive a hard time from viewers over the coming weeks.

The actress has been playing the role of manipulative Kim "Casey" Carswell on the ITV1 soap, who has tried to seduce married butcher Ashley Peacock, and will finally be successful in scenes to be broadcast this week.

Zoe has been receiving advice on playing a baddie from her husband Jeff Hordley, better known as Emmerdale villain Cain Dingle. However, she does not believe that she will receive positive reactions on the street, as Jeff did during his soap stint.

"My husband played a baddie for a long time, but it's different being a bad girl - people are not so sympathetic," Zoe told the Sunday Mirror. "Women especially always love a bad guy and Jeff always got a good reaction, but I'm not sure how people will react to me.

"Casey is an out-and-out bitch and a few times people in the street have shouted that I'm evil. I love playing a home-wrecker, but I'm apprehensive about how people will react as she gets worse." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
