“Kirsty was a long time ago now, but when you are in a show as popular as Coronation Street, it never fully goes away.

“That is one of my legacies, and I know as long as I am acting, that role will always come up! It’s no bad thing, but I think the daily recognition is not with me anymore.

“That is a nice place to be as a jobbing actor who can morph into different people without being too closely connected to one character.”

I think my time there was wonderful, but complete.

She added: “Would I go back to Corrie if they decided to bring Kirsty out of prison? I think my time there was wonderful, but complete.”
