Coronation Street has not been the same since you left, is there any chance you may return?

You have played loads of roles brilliantly but you still seem to mostly get supporting character or maybe co-star parts. You deserve to have a series built around you and to be the central character, have you never been offered something on those lines?

As a child did you always want to be an actress? Did you get leading parts in plays at school? Which actresses did you admire? Who did you want to be like?

There are so many characters in Corrie, are any of the cast considered to be the stars of the programme or are they all equals? Do they all work peacefully together or are there rows and fights between the cast? Some of the characters always seem to be involved in some sort of trouble and it is easy to imagine the actors and actresses could have a fiery nature too!

You're so beautiful and sexy, I envy you your looks. Do you have to work hard to keep your figure or does it come naturally? Is there a part of your body/appearance that you're specially proud of? Anything you'd change?

I agree with North End Mam who said you deserve to have a series written for you. If that happened, which actors and actresses would you like to have in supporting roles?

Hiya
I think the outstanding actress on Coronation Street (now that you have gone!) is Jane Danson (Leanne Barlow). She acts with such depth and passion and seems to get inside the character. The on/off scenes with her wedding earlier this year brought me to tears. What is Jane like to work with?

When you first wanted to act did your family support you or try to dissuade you?

Have you ever been asked to go on Strictly Come Dancing or a programme like that? Would you like to do something like that? What are your views on that sort of programme?

Hi and thanks for doing this.
When you started on Coronation Street did anyone take you under their wing and help you settle in?
