Fans of Corrie will of course know that gay characters Sophie Webster and Marcus Dent haven’t had the easiest of times with their respective new partners of late…
Sophie’s new girlfriend Jenna (Krissi Bohn) has only just told her mum she’s gay, and Marcus (Charlie Condou) struck up a romance with hairdresser Maria after ‘turning’ straight!
More on Marcus’s ongoing problems shortly, but first, Brooke Vincent, who of course plays Sophie has revealed that she’s become something of an “Agony aunt” to teens who are, like Sophie has been, in turmoil over their sexuality.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Brooke said, “I love the fact Sophie is a lesbian. I love playing the character… Read more & comment »
Fans of Coronation Street will of course know that when Sophie Webster made a move on her physiotherapist Jenna Kamara, and the pair kissed, Jenna actively reciprocated the smooch…
However, when Sophie’s dad Kevin (Michael Le Vell) walked in on the pair and saw them kissing, he immediately went on the offensive and told Jenna he was going to report her to her superiors at the hospital for her inappropriate conduct with his daughter.
Sophie (Brooke Vincent) was of course mortified with her dad’s behavior, and angrily retorted that he was only making the threat because Jenna rebuffed his clumsy advances some weeks before…
But nonetheless, Kevin did indeed report Jenna, and she now faces a disciplinary hearing over the incident. Read more & comment »
As we saw in last night’s visit to Coronation Street, Sophie Webster and Jenna Kamara (Krissi Bohn) shared a tentative first kiss, only to be interrupted when Sophie’s outraged dad Kevin walked in on them.
And despite the fact that he himself made a pass at Jenna, Kevin (Michael Le Vell) was livid about what he saw, and told Jenna that he was going to report her to her superiors at the hospital, saying, “That’s abuse” after he witnessed the kiss.
And in an interview with Soaplife, Brooke Vincent, who of course plays Sophie, has revealed that it’s no idle threat, and that Kevin does in fact report Jenna, which could of course cost her her job as a physiotherapist… Read more & comment »

We reported a few weeks ago how while Coronation Street’s Rosie Webster recovered from her recent road accident, that both she and her dad, Kevin, would fall for the charms of her physiotherapist, Lloyd Mullaney’s daughter, Jenna – and it would seem that she has chosen whose affection to return – Sophie’s!
Sophie (Brooke Vincent) has been single ever since her wife-to-be, Sian, ran out and left her on their wedding day, and it seemed that there was no sign of love on the horizon for the unlucky teenager, especially after trying to help her friend she ended up almost paralysed when a car hit her.

Earlier today, we reported that injured Coronation Street resident Sophie Webster is to get a new love interest in the form of her physiotherapist, Jenna (Krissi Bohn) but long before that romance begins, Sophie has to cope with hearing that she may never walk again!
And given the circumstances that resulted in her terrible spinal injuries – that is, that by saving Ryan Connor (Sol Heras) from being hit by a car, Sophie took the impact herself – Brooke Vincent, who plays Sophie, says that her character will forgive Ryan…
But only if he swears never to touch drugs again.
Speaking to Soaplife, Brooke first began by explaining that Sophie doesn’t even blame Ryan for the accident, but of course, her parents Sally (Sally Dynevor) and Kevin (Michael Le Vell) do!
She said of Ryan, “He’s her friend, she wants to help him and she doesn’t blame him for what happened.” Read more & comment »
As fans of Corrie will know, poor Sophie Webster is facing months of recovery after she was knocked down by a car earlier this week, having shoved reckless Ryan Connor (Sol Heras) out of the path of the oncoming car.
Having been told that she may never walk again, Sophie (Brooke Vincent) will have to undergo long-term physiotherapy to mobilize her again, and it’ll transpire that her physiotherapist is Lloyd Mullaney’s newly found daughter, Jenna Kamara (Krissi Bohn).
And according to the Daily Star, not only will Sophie fall for Jenna – and Jenna for her – but so will her dad Kevin (Michael Le Vell) who will of course accompany Sophie to her physio sessions.
Of Jenna, a show insider told the paper, “She’s breaking a serious moral code by getting involved with Sophie. Sophie is in a very vulnerable position following the car accident… Read more & comment »
Coronation Street teen Sophie Webster has of course been a tad accident prone in the last couple of years, what with her fall from the roof of a church and now, she’s about to be knocked down by a car!
But while speaking to TV Biz, Brooke Vincent, who of course plays Sophie, has revealed that in direct comparison, filming the scenes in which Sophie’s run down were scarier than the fall that left her fighting for her life.
The road accident of course comes after Sophie pushes a drunken – and high on drugs – Ryan Connor (Sol Heras) out of the path of a car. He flees the scene of the accident, leaving Sophie lying in the road.
A stuntwoman filmed the moment when Sophie is actually hit by the car, but Brooke did the rest of the scene herself, including dodging the moving cars.
She said, “However much the stunt co-ordinator told me the cars wouldn’t touch me, because the stunt drivers knew exactly what they were doing, it went against every instinct to step into the road… Read more & comment »
Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent has revealed that although she’s loved the dramatic storylines surrounding her character Sophie Webster’s sexuality – Sophie is of course gay – she’s happy that the writers give her other plotlines, such as the forthcoming road traffic accident.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Brooke said, “I didn’t just want to be known as the actress who played a lesbian,” she tells us.
“I loved playing that storyline and it got loads of positive attention, but there is more to Sophie and to other teenagers than just their sexuality.
“I was ready to tackle another teen issue and I was glad it was drugs. It’s the hardest storyline I’ve ever had to play.”
The paper adds, “Viewers will be stunned to see Sophie’s tragic accident after a night out with bad boy Ryan Connor.”
Explaining how Sophie ends up critically injured after a night out with Ryan (Sol Heras) Brooke said, “Ryan is upset to find that he is no longer having a baby with Tracy Barlow so he turns to drugs… Read more & comment »
In upcoming episodes of Coronation Street, we’ll see Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) being left fighting for her life after she’s hit by a car, having saved Ryan Connor’s life by pushing him to safety out of the path of the oncoming vehicle.
And to make matters worse, because Ryan’s (Sol Heras) drunk and high on drugs, he flees from the scene of the accident, leaving Sophie unconscious and critically injured, lying in the road.
So understandably, when Sophie’s dad Kevin finds out about Ryan’s cowardly actions, he’s furious and seeks out the young lad.
Speaking to Soaplife about the plotline, Michael Le Vell, who plays mechanic Kevin, explained his character’s rage.
He began by explaining, “Kevin’s having a quick pint in the Rovers and his phone goes.
“He’s shocked to hear the hospital explain that Sophie has been involved in a serious accident and rushes off to be with her… Read more & comment »

But first, of Catherine’s worries – she of course plays sexy Eva Price – it seems that since she split with her boyfriend, she’s heard rumours that pictures she sent him are “doing the rounds”.
A friend of Catherine’s told the Mirror, “She’s terrified they could appear on Twitter or Facebook at any moment.
“And it goes without saying she will be absolutely furious if they do.
“The snaps were sent in confidence but it looks as though somebody is threatening to betray her trust, which is very upsetting and disappointing.
“There’s nothing she can do apart from cross her fingers and hope for the best.”
Meanwhile, Catherine recently said, “I am so disillusioned with men at the moment… Read more & comment »
