Paula Lane on ITV's Daybreak

Paula Lane, who plays Coronation Street's Kylie Platt, was on ITV's Daybreak TV programme this morning,

She spoke about her training for and the reasons she's doing the London Marathon later this year. Paula is running to raise funds for Henshaws, a charity for blind children.

On playing Kylie in Corrie, Paula talked about the current salon wars and the fight for business which causes so much stress for Audrey that she ends up having a heart attack.

And talking about filming the scenes that announced Betty had died, Paula said it was very sad but having to play Kylie who didn't care about Betty was really tough as she always thought of Betty Driver as a real-life inspiration.

I thought it must've been hard for Paula to say: "Oh, she was ancient", knowing how much loved Betty Turpin and Betty Driver was.
