It's the first time I've ever met Kate Oates and she is just as glamourous as she appears in the pictures of her you see in the press. She also had an air of determination about her that impressed me very much.
Talking to us all about her plans for the soap and the upcoming storylines, she made it clear that she was all about the storytelling.
And here's some of what we can look forward to seeing over the next few months!
Peter Barlow is returning. Not only that, but Ken's grandson Adam Barlow and Ken's son Daniel Osbourne are returning too.
The recent tabloid rumour about Toyah Battersby returning was quashed by Kate Oates.

And David Platt has a troubled time ahead as he is torn between avening Kylie's death and being a good dad to Max and Lily.
There will be a big stunt in the autumn. Kate Oates said: "We are going to have a nice big stunt coming up in the autumn. It's traditional, you know! That will possibly be tied up with the Platts' story."
There is also a turbulent time ahead for poor David Platt as he become hellbent on avenging Kylie's tragic death.
