Coronation Street's Rosie Webster was recently tipped to star in her own online spinoff, and it seems that the rumours could be true!

Back in March, a report in the Daily Star Sunday revealed that the Weatherfield glamour girl would have her own internet series focusing on her quest for fame as a model. Insiders said that the show would see Rosie follow her dreams in London.

At the time, the rumours were unconfirmed but in an interview with this week's Radio Times, Corrie's executive producer Kieran Roberts said: "We're developing a new multiplatform piece that will involve Rosie."

While there's no more details than that just yet, Rosie getting her own internet series is looking increasingly likely…

Corrie has enjoyed some great successes online recently so it's no surprise to hear that there's more ideas on the way. Over 111,000 people viewed the official website's tram crash bulletins during the 50th anniversary week last year, Gary's Army Diaries was also a big hit and later transferred over to ITV2, and most recently fans have been entertained by Ken and Deirdre's Bedtime Stories.

In the Radio Times piece, Roberts commented: "I'm very aware that younger viewers in particular are watching in different ways now. When I was a teenager, there was one television in the house and we all sat round it.

"Now kids watch on laptops in bedrooms and on mobiles and we have to deal with that. We're looking for ways to extend Coronation Street content and the brand."
