Corrie's Kelly to become New Year focus

By
Corrie's Kelly to become New Year focus
Coronation Street's Kelly 'Legs' Crabtree has been lined up as one of the soap's big characters of 2008.

The knicker stitcher – played by 30-year-old Tupele Dorgu – launches her own range of underwear in the New Year and soon forges a relationship with new bookie on the Street, Dan Mason (Matthew Crompton).

Kelly is enraged, however, when she finds herself at the centre of a wager between father and son.

Dan bets his father Harry (Jack Ellis) that he could sleep with one of the factory girls without any problems. Kelly discovers his wager at the last minute and is quick to cancel their date but Dan soon realises that he has feelings for the leggy machinist.

A Weatherfield source told the Daily Star: "It's a glowing tribute to the popularity of Tupele's character that bosses have got some top storylines in store for her.

"They will deservedly push her into the limelight next year and make her one of the show's leading figures." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
