Bonus Scoop: Corrie's Kat Kelly

By
Last week, I caught up with the fabulous Katherine Kelly - Becky Granger in Coronation Street - to chat about her upcoming storyline that sees her wreak havoc in Weatherfield. I have to say, her performance is one of the most convincing pieces of acting to come from Corrie in the last couple of months.

You have some fantastic scenes with Simon Gregson next week, don't you?
"I loved those bits. Those were the first scenes we actually filmed of the whole week, so it was hard to pitch how drunk Becky was! You can just have fun with Simon, though."

Is there still a spark between them?
"Yeah, I think there's a big spark between them, but neither of them see it because they're so preoccupied by who they're with. I really think that they're punching above their weight with their current partners. It'd take someone else to point out the attraction between them, though. They don't even realise how much they've got it common. They do get closer in the storyline by default because Steve's forced to act as Becky's alibi for the night she caused all the damage."

Do you think we'll ever delve into Becky's past a little more?
"You just get little dabbles of Becky's past to be honest. There's a bit coming up with the DC Hooch storyline and it transpires that he's known her a while. The odd thing does get mentioned, but I'd be really surprised if Becky's family ever showed up.

"I don't think the writers and producers want to pin her down. If you look at Roy, for example, you've never met his family or heard much about them. I've never been told anything about Becky's past anyway. I think Becky's mum will have had quite a few boyfriends, though. Although maybe she had a really nice family - you never know!"

Is Julie Hesmondhalgh back on set yet?
"She's back today actually, which is why we're hectic with filming. It's brilliant – it's like she's never been away. She's just slotted straight back in. And best of all, Roy and Becky are so glad she's back, too." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
