Corrie: Natalie Gumede says of violent Kirsty Soames, “Her sense of reality is starting to become quite warped” (VIDEO)

by Lynn Connolly

In last night’s visit to Coronation Street, we saw violent Kirsty Soames subjecting her fiancé Tyrone Dobbs to the worst beating he’s had to date after she caught him going through her handbag to find his mobile phone…

Nutty Kirsty had of course taken Ty’s phone – and his keys, after locking him in their house – to work with her so that he couldn’t have any contact with his friend and soon to be lover, Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine).

Kirsty first slapped Tyrone (Alan Halsall) then viscously kicked him while he was on the ground, and even made him apologise to HER for prompting her anger!

However, during an interview for the show’s website, Natalie Gumede, who plays Kirsty, has revealed that there’s even worse violence to come from her unstable character.

She said, “The level of violence with Kirsty has escalated to a really dangerous point now…

“Her sense of reality is starting to become quite warped, I think.

“I think the story is really taking quite a dark turn. It’s been very uncomfortable to film – worthwhile, I think we’re telling a great story – but it’s becoming quite harrowing to be a part of.”

As we reported recently, Tyrone and Fiz are set to come up with a plan – which involves Tyrone marrying Kirsty – that will ensure he has legal rights to his daughter Ruby, but that will only come about after a terrified Tyrone has tried to flee Weatherfield with the baby…

Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) will be seen racing to the coach station to bring Tyrone back to the Street to hear Fiz’s plan, which he later puts into action.

Of the marriage proposal and plotline, Natalie said, “The next part of the story will be, ‘Will they make it down the aisle?’

“If Kirsty finds out what’s going on behind her back, there could be even bigger consequences than there already have been.

“So who knows what’s going to happen to Tyrone?”

And finally, of the beating that Kirsty administered to Tyrone in last night’s episode, Natalie said before it aired, “It’s extremely brutal and it was really difficult to film, but hopefully it will look realistic…

“I would watch from behind a cushion or a sofa or something, or through fingers!”

Here’s a look at Wednesday night’s episode in which Ty tries to escape Kirsty’s clutches by running away with Ruby to Glasgow…

    Splendid storyline Corrie, showing that there [is] another side to a coin.
