Soap swap! Hollyoaks actress joins Coronation Street

Let's hope her character has better luck in Weatherfield!

Hollyoaks fans were stunned when Eva Falco was killed off this week.

But don’t worry, actress Kerry Bennett, who played the crooked cop, will be back on our screens soon as she’s been spotted filming for Coronation Street!

Photographed on location, Kerry’s been seen filming with Sam Robertson, who plays Adam Barlow.

They were filming outside Manchester United footballer Juan Mata’s house in what a Coronation spokesperson told The Sun was only a guest role for Kerry for “a couple of episodes”.

The storyline is being kept under wraps, but it looks like Adam goes to visit Kerry’s character at her very posh house in Cheshire – so whoever she is, she’s done all right for herself!

It’s a pretty swift turnaround for the actress who met her maker on Hollyoaks after being killed by Grace Black.

Eva had been on the run with boyfriend Liam Donovan after shooting Esther Bloom in the head at New Year.

With Esther in hospital, struggling to recover from her serious brain injury, Grace swore revenge on her attacker.

Finally hunting her down, Grace shot Eva in the back of the head, using a silencer, on a (conveniently) deserted train.

Reacting to Eva’s exit, Kerry commented to Digital Spy: “I’ve had such an amazing time and felt so welcomed and supported from the start.

“I’m sad to be leaving – six months has flown by way too fast – but it feels awesome to have been involved in such a great storyline on such a fabulous production.”

Kerry first joined the cast as show stalwart Jack Osborne’s vengeful niece. She spent most of her stint on the soap plotting to kill her uncle after her father died and she blamed Jack.

She eventually hunted him down on New Year’s Eve, but Esther got caught in the crossfire and ended up suffering.

And now Grace has made sure Eva’s paid for her mistake. But will Grace pay for killing Eva?
