Melanie Hill has seemingly taken a swipe at her Coronation Street storylines.
The 58-year-old actress, who stars as Cathy Matthews in the ITV soap, liked and replied to a tweet from a Corrie fan who called for the actress’ character to be given more juicy plotlines.
The fan’s post read: “Wish #Corrie Cathy had a storyline… She’s a brilliant actress and so underused @melaniejhil give them a kick up the backside @itvcorrie.”
Melanie liked the tweet and thanked the fan for the show of support.

The TV star also posted an emoji version of herself crossing her fingers.
When will Coronation Street return to filming?
It has not been confirmed when soaps will return to filming, as the UK is still in lockdown.
But an ITV chief recently claimed that the UK government is keen for Coronation Street and Emmerdale to resume filming as soon as possible.
Carolyn McCall, the broadcaster’s chief executive, said they want to get filming back underway immediately it is safe to do so.
She explained: “ITV’s role is to inform people but also entertain and engage them – and that is vital at the moment.
“The government is very keen for us to bring back the soaps as soon as we can, while observing the social distancing measures.”
Potential measures to ensure a safe return to set may include one-way only staircases. Or even installing Perspex screens around editing stations.
Coronation Street airs next week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
