Coronation street actress Sally Ann Matthew has clashed with her co-star Simon Gregson’s wife over personalised messages to fans.
Sally, who plays Jenny Connor on the ITV soap, was recently on Twitter speaking to fans about how they could go about getting a free autograph from their favourite Corrie stars.
She stated how fans shouldn’t have to pay for autographs or videos from the soap stars.
In a tweet she wrote: “Write to us at Trafford Wharf Road. We do them for free! You should never pay for an autograph (or a video message come to that) x.”

But Simon’s wife Emma took this as a dig at her husband, who regularly sells personalised messages for £30.
In a now deleted tweet, Emma responded saying: “Wow! Nothing like sticking together with your work colleagues.”

However Sally’s followers agreed with her. One wrote: “Thanks Sally, shame they’re not all like you.”
A second said: “Cheers Sal. That’s so kind.”
Another added: “Good on ya Sal.”
Entertainment Daily contacted Corrie reps who declined to comment.
Coronation Street: Charging for messages
Simon, who plays Steve McDonald in Corrie, isn’t the only soap star to sell personalised messages.
Earlier this year former Corrie actress Katie McGlynn, who played Sinead Osbourne, also sold video messages through the website Cameo.
The actress was charging £100 a pop, however the funds were going towards charity Mummy’s Star, which Katie is a patron of.
Other stars who have been known to provide videos include Chris Gascoyne, who pays Peter Barlow and Charlie Lawson, who plays Simon’s on-screen dad Jim McDonald.
Coronation Street: Sally’s storyline
While Sally Ann may be caught up in a bit of drama in real life, her alter ego will also find herself getting caught up in some issues next week.
After months away and suspicious behaviour, Jenny’s husband Johnny finally returns home from France.
Johnny tries to assure his wife that he needed time alone and that it won’t happen again. But Scott tells Johnny it’s about time they have a proper chat. He leads him into the back room with trepidation.
What’s going on between Johnny and Scott?
