Who was Victoria in Coronation Street?

Victoria played Angie Appleton in Corrie from 2017 until 2019.

Angie, her husband Jude and their son George moved to the cobbles after Jude reconnected with his birth mother, Mary Taylor.

However, Jude had been lying to Angie about what he did for a living.

His lies continued when he let people believe he saved Roy Cropper from an allergic reaction. But it was really Ali Neeson who provided the medical assistance.

Eventually Angie and Jude split and she moved back to South Africa with George after being offered a job by her old boss.

After leaving Coronation Street, Victoria landed a role in The Worst Witch series playing Mistress Nightshade.
