“But I’ll stay for as long as they want me to stay. I love the show; thank heavens for it.”

Katherine added that she even gets stopped in the street over Harriet’s storyline.

She said: “Some viewers meet me and say I’m going to get judged by God because of this current storyline.

“On Twitter sometimes people think I can be a bit more help than I possibly can be.

“I don’t know if that’s because they see the dog collar on screen.”
